so we are making a 6 hour drive to Nashville!
I have been there twice before for just over night stays. So, I don’t really know what there is to do or see or absolute musts to eat.
I love genuine southern food (Gus’s from Memphis is a fave) but I don’t like smoked or BBQ food (don’t judge). We are going Memorial Day weekend and on Saturday night we all planned on going to a really nice dinner place and going out to bars/clubs afterwards.
Any suggestions welcome!!

Honky Tonk is fun, Tootsies is also fun, honestly most of the bars on the main strip are alot of fun and have live music. Painters alley is also an interesting place. Etch is a nicer resturant and delicious, The Pancake Pantry is also a must for breakfast although theres always a wait, it’s totally worth it!

my Future Mother-In-Law had a timeshare with Wyndham so we are staying there for stupid cheap. It’s about 20 minutes from downtown and they offer a shuttle for like $10 a person to cover both ways!

I freaking love Nashville. I was drunk for about 80% of the time we were there, so I don’t have any specific recommendations, other than to get your photo taken with this guy.

I’m a bit late chiming in for this conversation, but wanted to offer some of my favorites (as a Nashville transplant) in case of future brides-to-be!
Brunch: MONELL’S! Seriously, you will not regret this decision. Awesome Southern food served family style, all you can eat, awesome ambiance, friendliest staff around. The one downtown (on 5th) is far enough from downtown to find parking, but close enough that you can walk downtown afterward!
Hot Chicken: Hattie B’s. They also have an awesome Sunday brunch awesome, but this is a hit any time of day. The one on 19th has more to walk around and look at, but the one on Charlotte Pike will have parking available, shorter lines, and is next door to Bobby’s Dairy Dip, some of the most famous ice cream in town. Speaking of which…
Ice Cream: Jenny’s for ice cream ($5 a scoop, but trust me, so worth it!), and Las Poletas for popsicles. Both are on 12 South.
Boutique Shopping: 12 South. You can walk the whole length of it, and pop into lovely vintage and charm shops all the way down.
Brew Hopping: Yazoo, Jackalope, TN Brewing Works, and Czann’s. All local brewers, all within walking distance of one another.
As long as you’re somewhere in town, Uber/Lyft is generally cheaper than parking downtown, FYI!
