It’s always 5 o’clock at this country music superstar’s honky-tonk.

Combine the best of Alan Jackson’s country hits, décor from his personal collection and career memorabilia with the best of Nashville’s honky-tonks. Shake, and pour into a more than 6,000 square feet of “good time” just down the street from the storied Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame. What do you get? The recipe for Alan Jackson’s AJ’s Good Time Bar, a real honky-tonk for real people with real music where — as Jackson sings in the hit song that gave his bar its name — “all the conditions are right for a good time,” today, Labor Day, any day.

Below is a taste of the drink menu from AJ’s Good Time Bar, which is personally curated by Jackson and inspired from his greatest hits, including “Chattahoochie,” “Midnight in Montgomery,” and “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere” collaboration with Jimmy Buffet. Enjoy the tipples while listening to the official AJ’s Good Time Bar Spotify playlist, also below.
