Does anyone have previous experience living and working within the downtown area? New job opening and I'm just looking for ideas of where to live.

welcome to the most underrated city in the country.

bar scenes:

the gulch- yuppie young high class
broadway- honkey tonk central
2nd- non country version of downtown's honkey tonks
midtown- raleigh-like bar scene near vandy
demonbreun- frat crowd
east nasvhille - hipsters
hillsboro village - vandy crowd

Bars:

must go

the whisky kitchen in the gulch - must go here. food and alcahol in a top notch atmosphere
tootsies on broadway - the king of all the honkey tonks

i like

yazzoo brewing company (gulch)
winners- next to losers (midtown)
losers- next to winners (midtown)
big bang dueling pianos (braodway)


breakfast:

pancake pantry (hillsboro village) is great but will have an epic line on weekends
puckets (downtown) is a good southern restaurant for breakfast

ice cream:

the pied piper creamery (east nashville) has been featured on food tv and is one of the best ice creams i've ever had.

the cupcake collection (germantown) is great

For Ice Cream, go to Mike's located on Broadway. That is, if it's still around. I was there just before the big flood a few years back.

Also, check out SATCO near Vanderbilt for eating. You'll thank me later.

Well think about it. Where would you eat if you were an 18 year old bookworm from new york?

I'd also give good odds that the girls you were looking at were USN students because they always go there anyway (I almost taught there).

Nashville is only about 1.5 hrs north of me, I've been there a few times. Good call on passing on their "BBQ", especially if you are used to NC style. NC BBQ made me such a BBQ snob.

I've been to a handful of restaurants, I really enjoyed BB Kings (live music but then again tons of restaurants in Nashville have live music) and some decent soul food. If you are looking to stuff your face and have a few people that you are eating with, check out Monell's in Germantown.

Fucking thread winner right here.


Went there for lunch today with my customers. It was their recommendation. I can not accurately describe how ridiculously awesome the food was. Not sure which Monells it was. But it's the big ass mansion.

Try the chicken at Hattie B's. Go to Pucketts for breakfast and get the southern stack. There's a famous old place near Vandy that serves burgers on French rolls, it's pretty good too. And check out the Flying Saucer; same idea as the one in Raleigh, but in an awesome location in an old train station and with better looking waitresses.

Having started this thread it's pretty much spot on with recommendations. Satco is good late night food but that's about it. Monell's is good but be prepared as it's served family style so you sit with other people. Hattie B's is better that Princes as it doesn't burn you up. Bar near Vandy is Rotier's and the burgers on french rolls are good. Parking at Flying Saucer is horrible. Best breakfast is Le Peep out in Belle Meade. For a good burger try the original Sportsmen's out in Belle Meade too.

I have lived in Nashville for over 4 years. Awesome town. I live in the Hillsborough area and can walk to lots of bars and restaurants. 12 south is another neighborhood close to downtown that is really blowing up. Feel free to hit me up with any specific questions.

I'll be in Nashville for work 8/30-9/1, staying at a hotel in the Gulch, then maybe staying at my cousin's place in Clarsville for a couple days after that. What do I need to check out? Looks like some good recommendations in this thread, but I'm sure stuff has changed in the last 3 years

extra credit for family friendly places since I'll have my wife and kids with me

If it is your first time there I would check Belle Meade Plantation as a family friendly activity. I really enjoyed it when my wife and I went and think it's under rated as something to do during the day not named Broadway/Country Music HOF. If your kids are at least about 3 they will have fun playing on the lawn bowling court and climbing around in the old meat smoking building.

Walking around Vanderbilt's campus is pretty cool also. And free. We walked into random buildings just the check them out. The football practice field was completely open so we went out there too. While you are over there this is a place called Pancake Pantry that is really good. Plenty of options to eat other than pancakes so don't sweat that.

Outside of town is a place called Loveless Café. Super popular with tourist but it's worth the drive IMO. It's as much an experience as a place to eat. There a little shops all around the property. Think cracker barrel on steroids. Tons of kids running around there.

Pancake Pantry is great, but be prepared for a line out the door and down the street(though they do put water jugs out there for people in line). I also enjoyed "Eat Love Biscuit" as a solid breakfast/brunch spot.

Then there are the classic family-friendly stops: The Parthenon, Country Music HoF, see a show at the Grand Ole Opry, tour The Ryman, checking out concerts, and I think you can walk around the new venue/ampitheater downtown on the river.

I went out there last summer but wasn't focused on family-friendly things, so more music/breweries/honky tonks/barcades/etc.

second loveless cafe, that place is amazingly good. If you go on a saturday or sunday morning be prepared for an hour wait minmum, but it was cool little shops you can explore while you wait

also everyone loves hattie B's for hot chicken but I personally like Big Shakes way better

Some good ideas in this thread...I'm going to Nashville for the 1st time with a few people for my bachelor party weekend. Leaving this Thurs and staying thru Sunday. Staying at a house along the Cumberland River, so some good recommendations for outdoor type stuff would be cool. Looks like The Gulch/Pie Town area is good for a decent concentration of breweries to walk to. Kind of worried there's a Rock N Roll Marathon on Saturday, so I might have to plan around that. How's the minor league baseball team?
