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.

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.

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.

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.

Stopped in here for dinner tonight after a visit to Yazoo. Really nice old building repurposed into multiple businesses. Place was packed with people enjoying themselves so seating was limited. Two seats opened up at a table with four other people so we went with it and they couldn't have been nicer. We talked about local beer and about some of the places back home I like to visit, turns out two of them were from PA originally. Service was a tiny bit slow but the place was packed so that wasn't a huge deal for me. Quality was top notch and the selection was quite good. They had about 8-10 local beers on and plenty of other beers from all over the world to fill out the rest. Food was solid as well. I got the club sandwich, pretty good, and the spicy tots which were awesome. Value was pretty good, maybe a touch high but they weren't outrageous or anything. Overall a nice beer bar in the heart of city, glad we made the effort to stop here.
