The flying Saucer is a chain. This one is located in an old union station. It has high ceiling that are covered in "saucers."

They have a beer club, and seem to be good at promoting it. The wait staff seems to be all women dressed in tight clothes.

They have quite a large slection of drafts and bottles from both local breweries and from all over the world. Yahzoo was a surprise hit for me. They also had Stone, Brooklyn, DFH, etc.

The food menu was small, but they had all the usuals. Of note would be the sampler plates with cheese and meats that you can mix and match.

If you are in the dowtown area, I doubt you would be able to find a better selection of beers. If you are in to the scantily clad women they have that too. However, I found the smoking to be distracting at times. Check them out if you are in the area. (830 characters)

It's all about selection, selection, and selection. You can't find this many taps anywhere else in Nashville. The bartenders are awesome and the vibe is laid back. It can get busy some nights, and food menu is average, but nobody's coming here for the grub. It's all about the beer at the Flying Saucer, and they are killing it. (332 characters)

A very popular place to drink great beer in Nashville. Has kind of a club/lounge/house (home, not the music) feel. Service can be a touch lacking when it gets crowded, but still a fun place to go with a group, especially after visiting the neighboring Frist museum. Pretty extensive beer list with good weekly specials. If you like craft and are in Nashville, this is a good place to start. Worth seeking out if you've got a weekend.

Parking sucks. (454 characters)

Outstanding place to grab a beer in Nashville. I Like all of the flying saucers I have been to. Great beer selection. Always a fun crown and our server was very knowledgeable. (175 characters)

What can I say? Probably the best place in all of Nashville to get your drink on and it's located next door to the Frist so you can get your art on and let some of the booze wear off. I'm a UFO member working on my green plate so I've hit this place enough to know it's pedigree. Thing is that they have a decent food selection too, although the Pork Belly sandwich is gone and you should be sad for that, even if you're never had it. Large tap wall, drink specials every day of the week (the "fire sale"). Just join the UFO club and make what you drink count towards something. (583 characters)

I will straight up start with I like this place has a neat vibe to it it's in part of an old railroad station. Lots of taps good local representation my only beef was I felt like stouts were under represented maybe time of year? I think I've become jaded though because Tennessee distro is kinda average I felt they didn't have anything stand out on tap, but it's still a very solid tap list. Food is fairly average their renowned pretzel is good but not astonishing. A fairly knowledgable bartenders which is very nice I asked for a fruity IPA the last time I was in and she laid it on me. (595 characters)

I love the Saucer, it has a huge selection of beer on tap and in bottle. Menu is sorted by Style and it is massive. I would suggest sitting where you can see the huge chalkboard, as it has new arrivals and exits not on the menu. It is very close to Vandy, so you get a lot of young college kids which can be annoying. The food is average, nothing really to rave about. If you are in Nashville, you should go here. (413 characters)
