Established in 1948.
The history of Printers Alley would be amiss without mentioning the Rainbow Room owned and operated by one of the true stars in Printers Alley, David "Skull" Schulman. Skull was so beloved by his fellow Nashvillians that the Nashville City Council unanimously adopted a resolution declaring him as "The Mayor of Printers Alley."
Originally, the club was an exotic dance club. What set Skull's club apart from its neighbor, The Black Poodle, was the live band performing the music for the dancers. The Rainbow Room was the only club in Nashville to have live music accompanying the burlesque shows.
After the death of David "Skull" Schulman in 1998, the venue was closed and was used as a storage unit for the venues along Printers Alley.
Reopened in June 2015, the historic Skull's Rainbow Room again features fine food, music and libations at its original location.
