Nashville, Tennessee, accurately nicknamed Music City is waiting to swoon your inner cowboy, feed your southern appetite and take you on a tour of it’s smoky, beer infused live music scene.
WHEN TO GOThe warm weather brings the live music scene to life and when it starts to cool off, the changing colours and country side bring all the Fall feels.
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 House: I almost drank the butter sauce from the bottom of my shrimp dish.
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 & Seed – Alan Jackson’s bar on Broadway, multiple levels with a sushi floor and rooftop.
- The downtown area of Nashville is called “Nash Vegas” with it’s neon lights, rowdy country bars and beer swigging tourists.
- There are currently 100 people a day moving to Nashville!
WHERE TO STAY
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.
