Photo Coverage: The First Night After-Party at Hard Rock Cafe
When the show finally ended on Sunday night, September 19, and First Night revelers made it to their cars, they headed downtown to Hard Rock Cafe Nashville, located at the corner of Broadway and First, for the After-Party.
Although the show ran long (as awards presentations tend to do) at four hours, a hale and hearty crowd of theater-types partied until the early morning hours of Monday, September 20 in the Reverb Room and on the rooftop balcony overlooking the glittery Nashville downtown and the Cumberland River with the soaring Nashville skyline in the background.
Some after-party goers continued their partying along Lower Broadway and Second Avenue as what was billed as "the biggest night for Nashville theater in the 21st century" wound down.
