#HYAD : NASHVILLE, TN
Nashville has been on the rise for years. It brings so much more to the plate than just the country-music-crazed, bachelorette-party-hub you've been hearing about. It has an incredible nightlife that extends well-beyond the honky tonks on Broadway, a couple of beautiful vineyards, some life-changing restaurant experiences, and wholesome Southern hospitality, to name just a couple of its wonderful attributes. Summer tends to be high season for Nashville, although any time is a good time to head to Music City!
Nashville has lots of different breakfast and brunch options throughout the city. One of our favorite stops is BISCUIT LOVE(316 11TH AVE S, NASHVILLE, TN), which has a couple of different Nashville locations to choose from. Biscuit Love offers tons of fantastic options for whatever you may be craving, in a cool, casual setting.
Now, where to spend your day? Tons of options. Shopping through the boutiques in the 12 S neighborhood, heading over to Opryland to tour the Grand Ole Opry or the famously beautiful Gaylord Opryland Resort, or the Belle Meade Plantation and Winery for a tour, just to name a few.
As for us, we'd hit up the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME(222 5TH AVE S, NASHVILLE, TN) conveniently located right off of Broadway. You can devote as much or as little time to it as you'd like, and there's tons of interactive exhibits to check out.
Next, take a nice 10-15 minute walk over to the FRIST ART CENTER(919 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN). Located on Broadway, filled with consistently cool, rotating exhibitions. If you still have some time left in your day, Uber over to PINEWOOD SOCIAL (33 PEABODY ST, NASHVILLE, TN) for a drink or two, and maybe a couple rounds of bowling. Feel free to stay here and grab some lunch, as their food is excellent, but we would head over to HATTIE B'S.
HATTIE B'S HOT CHICKEN(308 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN) is a Nashville staple, and has a couple of different locations throughout the south and within Nashville. Hot Chicken is absolutely a must-try when you're in town, and Hattie B's makes some of the best.
After lunch, you can head back and change for the night. There's tons of spots to hit for happy hour or appetizers before dinner!
ACME FEED & SEED(101 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN), THE GEORGE JONES(128 2ND AVE N, NASHVILLE, TN), TIN ROOF(316 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN), to name a few. For a classier happy hour, check out SINEMA(2600 8TH AVE S, SUITE 102, NASHVILLE, TN) or BARCELONA WINE BAR(1200 VILLA PLACE, NASHVILLE, TN).
There are an infinite amount of amazing restaurants throughout Nashville, and new ones popping up all the time. One of our favorite current culinary experiences in Nashville was at BUTCHER & BEE (902 MAIN ST, NASHVILLE, TN). They serve a large variety of different size plates, spreads, dips, and desserts. We like to order a bunch for the table and share everything. The atmosphere is welcoming, relaxing, and yet very trendy.
If you're interested in dining close to downtown, ETCH(303 DEMONBREUN ST, NASHVILLE, TN) and MERCHANTS(401 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN) are two great options. Merchants is a Nashville gem; serving the community for over 30 years, with 2 floors offering 2 separate menus. The top floor being an upscale steakhouse and the lower level being a more casual bistro. Etch offers something a bit more unique. With a globally inspired menu and stunning eclectic dishes bound to impress.
After dinner, you have plenty of options for a fun night out. You can start out in East Nashville(since that's where you'll already be) and hit up RUMOURS EAST(1112 WOODLAND ST, NASHVILLE, TN), THE FAMILY WASH(626 MAIN ST A, NASHVILLE, TN), or THE 3 CROW BAR(1024 WOODLAND ST, NASHVILLE, TN), to name a few.
Then we feel its only right to end off your night on Broadway, wandering in and out of the honky tonks, enjoying the live music and feel that Nashville is known for. Some prime examples of these are: HONKY TONK CENTRAL(329 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN), TOOTSIES(422 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN), CRAZYTOWN(308 BROADWAY, NASHVILLE, TN), the list goes on and on.
