Nashville's Pontoon Saloon Is the Best (and Booziest) Way to See the City

River cruises are one of the best ways to see a city. River cruises that are also a honky tonk? Sign us up, because that has to be fun. Nashville's Pontoon Saloon takes guests on a two-hour cruise through the heart of the city on the Cumberland River.

Noting that they are Nashville's only honky tonk on the water, the Pontoon Saloon offers 40 guests at a time the chance to see downtown Nashville while listening to music, dancing, and indulging in beverages on a 50-foot floating saloon.

The open top bow on the party barge offers panoramic views of the Nashville skyline during the BYOB cruises, but in case of a little rain, there's a cover over most of the boat, which also has some table top seating.

In keeping with the honky tonk theme, check out the cool guitar-shaped tables!

Nothing beats a #saloonsunday even with a little ?

If you're looking for some sunset cruise action with amazing views or a place to watch the stars come out, the river is a great place to be.

And a boat party is definitely the place to practice #squadgoals.

Or get your whole crew together for some booze cruise fun.

And it is Nashville, so doing something for the Country Music Awards is a must.

And the Stanley Cup, too.

And a floating saloon is a great place for a going away party.

It's a must-do for a Nashville bachelorette party (bachelor party, too).
