Local & Trendy Drinking Holes
1- Old Glory: A “Speak Easy” style bar that you won’t want to miss out on. It’s hidden in the heart of Edgehill, behind Taco Mamacita (See Foodies Welcome). This place has no welcome sign, in fact – most people miss it entirely. You just walk in the door and down a glam spiral staircase into the 1920’s. If you are into Craft Cocktails and good mood lighting, this is your place.
2- Flying Saucer: A beer emporium that is loved by locals and tourists alike. With some 200 beers on tap, it is a craft beer-goers dream come true. Located behind Union Station, this place offers more than just beer, there are also jumbo soft pretzels <3. If you’re open to trying a plethora of beers, you’ll want to become a member of their “UFO Club” to keep track of your pints and win big!
3 – Rosemary & Beauty Queen: This bar is for people who don’t like being at bars. This cocktail/beer joint is set up in a classic East Nashville home, yes, you heard me correctly. Every night you spend at Rosemary is like a night spent at your best friend Rebecca’s house, who has coincidentally hired on the top bartenders in town to host 50 of your closest, funniest friends. It will easily become your favorite Nashville “Kinda-Bar”.
Your Must-Shop List
1 – Vinnie Louise: You’ll never leave this hip clothing boutique empty-handed. With locations in 12South and East Nashville, you’ll always find one-of-a-kind, affordable items that will keep you feeling stylish during your stay in Nashville- and once you head home.
2 – Old Made Good: This vintage store was repping the Eastside before it was cool. It has a treasure trove of gift ideas for yourself (Or other people, if that’s your thing). They offer vintage tee’s, handmade needlepoints and a variety of vinyl, jewelry and clothing. Each item is handpicked and waiting to go to a good home, definitely check this place out.
3 – Stash: Stash is a small boutique located in the ‘Shoppes on Fatherland’ near 5 points. This place is what we call T-R-E-N-D-Y. They cater to a variety of women’s sizes and are known to have styles for every woman. You can find faux fur coats, turquoise sequin dresses and that graphic tee you want that says, “Fries over Guys”.
1- Pastaria Nashville: This charming, West End italian restaurant will make you rethink that keto diet you’ve been pondering. No really, they have woodfired pizzas that will make you seriously consider moving to Nashville for good. If the fact that it’s found in an office park throws you off, once you get inside all your doubts about our recommendations will melt away. You’ll just have to see for yourself.
2- Taco Mamacita: This modern mexican fusion restaurant will have you putting it on your Nashville favorites list. Taco Mama is home to the Unnofficial Official best margaritas in Nashville, and on Wednesday’s they give you two for the price of one! This is the perfect place to go for dinner before you hit up Old Glory (See Trendy Drinking Holes) for that after hours sip.
3- Nashville Urban Winery: This Restaurant/Winery/Event Space was built inside an abandoned car repair shop right off Main St. It’s relatively new to the scene, but has been creating quite a buzz around town. This is the type of place you stop in for a quick bite and end up staying til close.
1 – O.Liv Body Bar: This adorable day spa in the heart of East Nashville is home to Tennessee’s ONLY mudroom. They cater to all skin types, and even let you choose your own essential oil mixes depending on your skin strategy. If you’re looking for a spot to sit back, relax and get your glow on – this is it.
2 – Float Nashville: While Float isn’t the normal facial, massage and mud-mask kind of spa – it’s still one of the most relaxing places to visit in Nashville. If you aren’t sure about this 90 minute sensory deprived float tank, we urge you to step out of your comfort zone. Your muscles and mind will thank you.
3 – Woodhouse Spa: Have you ever been curious about Therapeutic Stone Massage? Your stress will literally melt away the moment you walk into this lush spa located right in the middle of the city. We recommend a glass of rosé to go with your Agave Nectar Pedi. Cheers!
