If you’re one for fancy dresses, and crazy hats, then The Hermitage Hotels High tea should be your go to. Serving up Taittinger Champagne, with delicious leaf tea, and the most darling assortment of treats, quiches, and mini sandwitches, you’re sure to be back in the 1920s experiencing the historic life one lived those days.

If you’re a fan of a cool speakeasy vibe, The Patterson House will be up your ally. Serving up some of the fanciest coctails around Nashville. And if youre here for the Burbon/Whiskey, you’re sure to find something you love. The Patterson House- An intimate space of dark wood, leather, vintage wallpaper and library books provides a relaxing, and comfortable atmosphere that takes you back to the prohebition era.

5. City Winery | Nashville | Live Shows, Dining & Winemaking

A cute winery without the drive. Come do a wine tasting and have some brunch at the tasty urban winery. The perfect spot for brunch, sitting outdoors and getting your winery vibe on. Try the Avocado toast, or the Hot Chicken Sandwitch, you’ll be leaving with a heart and stomach full of happiness and satisfaction.

6. Home :: The second fiddle

Located next to the infamous Tootsies, the Second Fiddle is one of those local sweet-spots to come get your country on. Cheap drinks (for a bar right on broadway), great local talents, and that crowded bar feel we all love and miss.

07. Downtown Nashville Restaurants – Dream Printer’s Alley (

The art of dinning comes alive at the Dreams, Stateside Kitchen. And when it comes to fine dining, the service presides itself with incredible and very attantive staff. I couldn’t recomment this place more. Come for the cotails, stay for the dinner, and leave with the knowledge that you just made a new best friend with the staff, because that’s how inviting and superb the service is.

8. Belle Meade Winery

Where do I begin with how incredible this winery was? I know, ill just tell you that it knocked my socks of so much, that ive gained another wine club. But all jokes aside, Belle Meade truly took my breath away. The historic grounds will make you roam for hours, just grab a blanket and a bottle of wine at the shop after you do your tasting, and youll be there for hours.

And if you’re a wino like me, I suggest booking ahead of time for the chef inspired dinner, or food and wine pairing. Their knowledgable sommoliers will have you sniffing wine like a pro when you’re done.

9. Robert’s Western World | Nashville’s Undisputed Home of Traditional Country Music

If you’re a true country music fan, then Roberts is your place for real, old school type of county like Jonny Cash and Jacky Jackson. Come for the music and stay for the fried bologna sandwitch, moon pie and beer for only $6!

10. NASHVILLE, TN | thehamptonsocial

For all my IG lovers, this place is your mini paradise. Its super picturesque, and vibrant and full of color and fun, with great refreshing drinks and a fun and outgoing atmosphere. A place everyone will find something to love in.

11. Nashville Restaurants | Henley (

Located at The Aertson Hotel, this to die for restaurant is your tasty go too, especially when staying at this hotel. All their breakfest is incredible, and you wont be able to leave without doing your own personal photo shoot in there. The decor is very artsy and well thought out, and truly exceeded all our expectations.

12. L.A. Jackson (

The LA Jackson truly took a little piece of my heart. As an avid lover of rooftop bars and restaurants, living in Portland, we dont get to experience many. So this place hit the spot for me in every way possible. Come and enjoy the city views, as you sip on a tasty Social Media Influencer, or a Pour Decission and enjoy that social crowd weve all missed.

13. L27 (

Your very own escape to New York rooftops provided to you by Nashvilles best, can be found at the Westin Hotel. Dress up fancy and feel yourself because this hot spot is sure to make your wildest drink dreams come true.

14. Home Page | The Diner

And last but not least, the most perfect hangover spot. The Diner! Located just blocks away from downtown, so if you find yourself stumbling with the infamous “Broadway flu” from the night before or doing the walk of shame the next morning, The Diner has something for everyone.
