Although super eventful and not at all what we had planned, my girl’s trip to Nashville last week was a total blast. Shout out to the 3 straight weeks of rain that took place before and during our trip!!! Even though the weather wasn’t pleasant, we still made the most of our trip and I’m so excited to share all of our favorite parts with you guys.
We started our trip off late Thursday afternoon when we got to our Airbnb in East Nashville. I LOVED this neighborhood and am so happy we stayed there! For dinner that night we had burgers at The Pharmacy just up the road (I was so hungry I failed to capture a pic of this deliciousness), which was above and beyond my expectations. Allll the heart eyes for this place, food and drinks wise. Before we went in, we stopped at this adorable mural up the road for pics, and walked into a vintage western clothing store across the street from it. Sooo different than any vintage store I’ve ever step foot in New York. Haha. We went back to our place and had a low key key night drinking and catching up before getting ready to hit the city the next couple of day.
The next day we were ready to head out and see the city! We had brunch at Liberty Commons and man oh man is this place Insta Pic heaven. The design is phenomenal and every inch is gorgeous. The drinks were sooo yummy, I had the gin cocktail, and it was so pretty! We all had different meals and not one was disappointing. Our waitress was also amazing and took pics of us and told us where all the good lighting in the restaurant was, my kind of lady.
After, if it hadn’t been pouring rain, is the perfect time to walk across the pedestrian bridge. Amazing views of the city and not to mention a dog park down below which was by far our favorite part. After walking the bridge you can spend a day walking down Broadway to see it in the daylight! There are tons of cute shops, museums, and of course tons of restaurants, great to find dinner in. We stopped into Legendairy Milkshake Bar, where believe it or not, I got a dairy-free milkshake! I was so excited and blown away by this. Also a great time to hunt down more murals!
That night we went out on Broadway and went to all the big country star’s bars, Jason Aldean was our favorite by far with FGL coming in second. The never ending options for live music were so amazing and there was just so much talent on every corner.
The next day we went to Pinewood Social for brunch. It’s a giant restaurant slash entertainment space with a bowling alley inside! If you are going to want to bowl you’ll need to make reservations WELL in advance as the entire weekend of our trip was fully booked a week before. If you eat here you have to try the Brussels sprouts, even if you’re not normally a fan like myself, they are some of them best things I have ever tried. This was our favorite meal of the trip!
We spent the rest of our day exploring the neighborhood 12 South. There were tons of adorable shops, lots more murals (including one of the I Believe in Nashville ones), and of course, BarTaco which was an AHmazing stop for dinner. I suggest grabbing a pre-night out drink on the roof of L.A. Jackson if you have the time for some good drinks, an escape from country music, and a to-die-for view! We ended our night back out on Broadway, hitting up as many new bars as possible, but ending up back at Jason Aldean to close out the night.
We had such a great time, and spent so much of our trip bonding and enjoying our time together. I hope this guide is helpful and can’t recommend Nashville enough for a girl’s getaway!
Note worthy places we didn’t make it to:
Coffee- Frothy Monkey (also apparently a great brunch spot), Barista Palor (in East Nashville if you decide to stay there!)
Sweets- Five Daughters Bakery (so picture perfect and delicious donuts), The Soda Parlor, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
