Nashville Hot Spots

While Nashville has always been a tourist destination thanks to roots in country music, recent success in business, sports, and other industries have attracted an even more diverse crowd to Music City. Tennessee’s capital boasts some of the best food, attractions, and nightlife a city can offer. While we’re sure you’ve heard of the old standbys like Tootsies and the Country Music Hall of Fame, we wanted to be sure you didn’t miss out on some of Nashville’s better kept secrets.  

EAT

House of Cards

Take “dinner and a show” to a whole new level with House of Cards. HOC is one of Nashville’s newest restaurants and one of the most unique dining experiences you’ll find. Guests are treated to classic American cuisine, hand-crafted cocktails, and some of America’s top magicians. Reservations are required.

Sunda

Sunda is a modern take on traditional dishes from all over the Sunda Shelf, a landmass that is now submerged under shallow seas. The region was once surrounded by the cultures and countries that Sunda celebrates now like Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and China. Fresh sushi, various dumplings, and signature noodles all await you at Sunda.

Bakersfield

Located just a short walk from the Omni, Bakersfield is a great spot for authentic, Mexican street fare, and a selection of over 100 tequilas and American whiskeys. Make sure to save room for their famous Queso, which was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives!

Gray and Dudley

This spot is located inside the 21c Museum Hotel and features a delicious, locally sourced menu. After dinner, make sure to take a stroll around the hotel’s art gallery for a look at some unique exhibitions.

 

PLAY

Nashville Sounds Game at First Tennessee Park

If you’re going to be in town extra days for HDC, consider taking in a baseball game with Nashville’s minor league team, the Nashville Sounds. In true Nashville fashion, the game itself is only part of the spectacle. First Tennessee Park is complete with a putt-putt course, fun activities for kids, and a right field bar called the Band Box.

Topgolf Nashville

Topgolf locations have been popping up around the country recently, and Nashville just had to get in on the fun. Topgolf Nashville has a live music venue, great food and drinks, a rooftop terrace, and of course over 100 hitting bays. Grab some colleagues or new acquaintances and have a friendly competition!

Hatch Show Print

You won’t have to travel far from the Omni to discover the Hatch Show Print shop. Travel home with a souvenir that is uniquely Nashville. Have time to kill? Tours of the print shop are available throughout the day to learn more about this craft. 

Pinewood Social

You’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere quite like Pinewood Social. There’s food, billiards, bowling, coffee, and cocktails all wrapped into one amazing venue. If you’re looking for a unique, entertaining experience, head over to Pinewood for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, or drinks. 

DRINK

Luke’s 32 Bridge Food + Drink

Country superstar Luke Bryan has recently opened his own six-story restaurant, bar and entertainment venue in downtown Nashville! Featuring eight bars within the venue, a multi-level rooftop bar, four stages and two restaurants, this spot will undoubtedly give you a night to remember!

Patterson House

The Patterson House is a quaint, speakeasy-style bar. If you’re looking for a bar with personality, ambiance, and not so much “honky tonk” feel, head over for a drink. 

L.A. Jackson

If an outdoor evening vibe is what you’re searching for, there is no better place to visit than L.A. Jackson. Located on the rooftop of the Thompson Hotel, this bar has all the sights and sounds Nashville has to offer.
