WHERE TO EAT

The Flipside: Retro style diner, world famous for it’s chicken, but as I’m currently a veggo I had the soup and inhaled the tatter tots. Omg they were good.   

Cafe Roze: Trendy all day cafe with healthy dishes, good coffee and cocktails.

Henley: Definitely not your standard menu. Chic and modern with a great cocktail menu. Get the Flake and drink the Mezcal Cocktail. 

Mas Tacos: Trendy street food style Mexican, to feed your taco coma. 

Biscuit Love: Wildly popular and famous for its biscuits. You will wait in line, but it’s worth it. Leave your diet outside.

Salt & Vine: Super chic, not-so-little wine bar with flavour-filled small plates. 

Marsh HouseI almost drank the butter sauce from the bottom of my shrimp dish.

Vegan Options:

House of Veggies & Vegan: Some of the best Vegan pizza I’ve ever had. They deliver, for a post Nash Vegas bedtime snack.

Sunshine Cafe: Vegan wraps, salads and bowls. I had the buffalo ‘chicken’ wrap and I’m still thinking about it. 

 

WHERE TO DRINK

Urban Cowboy Public House: Rustic-chic backyard bar with a large patio. In the cooler months they have a fire on the patio.  

The Patterson House: Fancy cocktails. Featured in GQ.

3 Crow Bar: Good and divey. Just my tune.

Santa’s Pub: K, I LOVE this place. It’s a serious dive bar with karaoke in a double-wide trailer. Hilarious. Get ready to smell like smoke. Also, it’s cash only.

Tootsie’s: Famous Broadway country bar with 3 floors. I never wanted to leave. 

ACME Feed & SeedAlan Jackson’s bar on Broadway, multiple levels with a sushi floor and rooftop.

Urban Cowboy Im obsessed with this place. It’s a rustic-chic B&B. Exactly what I thought of when I first pictured Nashville!

Union Station Hotel This is the original train station converted into a hotel. The building is really cool and it’s super close to downtown, but depending on how many Whiskey’s you sank before bed the trains are a little loud. 

Thompson Nashville I’m always a fan of Thompson Hotels. This one is done up in a rustic theme, has a wicked rooftop and Marsh House is downstairs.
