Music City, baby! No matter where you go, there will be incredible live music, cocktails flowing and people having a good time. Below are just some suggestions!
Best BBQ: A whole heck of a lot of options. Welcome to the South.
Husk: A well known restaurant known for upscale Southern fare. Great for a nice night out or brunch.
Arnold's Country Kitchen: Comes up in every search. There may be a line, but apparently, it's worth the wait!
The Mockingbird: Killer brunch. Spiked bags of punch and adult milkshakes. YAS.
Biscuit Love: Because, BISCUITS = LOVE.
Crema: Best coffee shop.
Order a Bushwacker. Somewhere. You won't regret it.
Pinewood Social: Pool, games, bar, bowling...all in one. Set a bit outside the city, but it's a great spot to hang out for a few hours.
Backstage Tour at the Grand Ole Opry: Duh. Kind of a must-do.
Country Music Hall of Fame: Museum
Peddle Tavern: Great way to see the city, hop into a few bars and meet some other party goers.
The Highway Happy Hour Show: Friday afternoon, the popular XM radio station hosts a happy hour at Margaritaville. Maybe see someone famous or get on the radio?! At least you'll get a margarita...
Whiskey Tour: Jack Daniels, Dickel and more - all just outside of Nashville. Great way to spend a day. Multiple options through this company, or other companies available. (Could also just use Uber and do it on your own!)
Belle Meade Plantation: 25 minutes outside the city, gorgeous plantation. Self guided/guided tour and food & wine pairing tickets available.
Johnny Cash Museum: A burning ring of fire.
Tootsies: It's crowded, it's crazy, but it's a Nashville staple, and you're guaranteed good music. Then continue on down Music Row.
Honkey Tonk Central: Largest Honky Tonk on Music Row.
The Patterson House: Speakeasy, with little information. Swanky, but super cool.
Bluebird Cafe: 15 minutes outside of downtown. From the TV show Nashville, but also a popular spot for upcoming singers!
