This week for What Where When-sday, we discuss Rudy’s Jazz Room with owners Adam Charney and Mike Braden. Opening its doors in 2017, the venue brings the spirit of traditional jazz clubs to Nashville while also providing a space for musicians to perfect their craft. Like every small independent music venue, the two face challenges. As Nashville continues to grow, rent becomes higher and parking becomes even more expensive. But the two childhood friends decided to bring their passions together to create an intimate space for music lovers, music creators and fans of New Orleans-style dishes.
