Where to Stay
Figuring out where to stay can often be the hardest part of planning any trip, especially if you’re flying there and aren’t familiar with local transportation. The most convenient areas we recommend include:
Downtown: Most people who visit Nashville spend time on Broadway and it’s the perfect place to spend your nights out on your bachelorette party. Along with famous bars, there’s a lot to do within walking distance such as visiting museums and shopping at local stores. It’s a great central location that’s easy to grab a Lyft or Uber from if you’re looking to explore other parts of the city.
The Gulch: If you want a more local feel while still being close to downtown, the Gulch is the perfect spot for you. They have over 50 restaurants ranging from casual to upscale along with the locally owned grocery store the Turnip Truck and plenty of unique boutique stores.
East Nashville: The eastside of town is unique as it’s home to a lot of the city’s artists and musicians. If you want a truly local experience, East Nashville is a great area to rent a Bed & Breakfast or stay at a vacation rental. While you can’t easily walk to other areas from this neighborhood, it does offer plenty to do with over 100 local restaurants and over 50 local stores.
The Best Bars
No matter your mood or the types of drinks you’re interested in, Nashville’s bar scene provides something for everyone. Here are some of our favorites:
On Broadway: Interested in bar hopping? Broadway is Nashville's main strip of bars and is packed with honky tonks, rooftop bars, celebrity-owned bars, and more. We recommend Nudie’s, Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa, Nashville Underground (owned by Gavin and Joey DeGraw), and Acme Feed & Seed.
In Midtown: If you’re looking to explore an area that’s less busy and more relaxed, midtown has plenty of bars that you can easily walk to. Our go-to’s are Kung Fu Saloon, The Dogwood, Red Door, and Tavern.
