Where to eat for a bachelorette party in Nashville:
Brunch in Nashville
This spot is so dreamy, it’s bright and beautiful. They have both light or hearty meals, with a mix of French and Southern entrees.
Pinewood Social is a great spot for not only bowling but for a different brunch experience than what you would typically expect, and the fit-for-foodies crowd will love it not only for brunch but also lunch or dinner. It’s a sceney, young professional hang-out spot with a guaranteed blast for brunch on a bachelorette party weekend.
Located in Nashville’s historic Melrose theater, Sinema is an over-the-top chic restaurant that has a menu with a modern take on your typical American classics. It’s an amazing brunch spot with a totally unique vibe. Want to take it to the next level? They also have an amazing bottomless mimosa and bloody mary bar to top off your experience.
This spot has a beautiful bar with 360-degree service and a huge selection of cocktails, wine, and of course – mimosas. You can get mimosas by the glass or carafe with an entire bottle of champagne (great for groups!).
Its website says it perfectly, with “modern dinner, global fare.” The menu at the Mockingbird is all over the place, which is why it’s so great to go there with a group- if everyone has very different culinary preferences, whether you want a corned seitan veggie Reuben and your bestie is dying for a chicken pot pie, they have it all. It’s comfort food at its finest, in a very stylish space. Don’t leave without getting the platter of cookies that are served in a birdcage.
Butcher and Bee
Though this spot is not strictly vegetarian, I feel like it has one of the best menus for veggie-loving people. It’s the kind of place you go for healthy shared plates and lots of cocktail options.
Where to have dinner in Nashville for a bachelorette party:
For every taco lover with a beachy vibe, this is your spot. Food really is the focus, so you won’t have any TVs or live music, but you’ll get delicious tacos and a large cocktail list.
This place is awesome because it’s super laid back, and is almost like a real trailer park. With burgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, it’s a great place to go out before a night out drinking.
Merchants is a lively three-floor restaurant that dates back to 1892. The first floor is a little more casual for a quick bite/appetizer more of a bistro-type feel, the second floor is a little fancier/upscale with a different menu, and the third floor is for group dining like rehearsal dinners.
It’s known for burgers and beer aka German wurst and bier, plus it’s considered to be Nashville’s Biergarten. There’s usually a line, so the earlier you get there, the better.
Barcelona Wine Bar
This menu is served tapas-style entrees allow you to get a little bit of everything – including charcuterie, cheese, salads, and all the veggies/meat dishes. They have an extensive wine list with a huge outdoor patio.
At ACME, the food and the music are both worth going, and staying, for. This warehouse-esque type building has endless options for whatever you’re in the mood food, the bottom floor offers live music and a full menu (hot chicken included), the second has a sushi bar and a lounge and the third level has a gorgeous rooftop view overlooking the Cumberland River and Broadway – it’s especially perfect for when they host free concerts on the street below.
This is your traditional southern food served family-style. The epitome of comfort foods, skillet-fried chicken, green beans, cheese grits, cornbread, biscuits and gravy, pot roast, and more.
Plus while you’re in Nashville, you have to get some of their famous hot chicken, stop by one of these spots: Hattie B’s, Pepperfire, Bolton’s Spicy Chicken & Fish, Party Fowl, and Prince’s Hot Chicken – just to give you a few ideas.
Where to go out in Nashville, TN for a bachelorette party
You guessed it, this bar was opened by Florida Georgia Line, and if you know country music you know that FGL is all about having a good time which is why it’s no surprise that FGL house is one of the hottest bars on Broadway, their rooftop is tough to beat in Music City.
Let’s just say that this bar is my kind of party (get it, get it), this saloon on 4 stories with live music (on two floors), TVs for sports, a gift shop & a rooftop bar.
This is Luke Bryan’s bar in Nashville, TN. It’s a 6 story bar (a different bar on every floor), some serving food, a sushi bar, dance floors, and of course a rooftop with an incredible view of Broadway.
The ultimate “Nashville” bar – and probably one of the most famous bars on Broadway. It has a super noticeable purple exterior. It’s known for jump-starting country music stars to get their start on the Honky Tonk Highway.
Whiskey Row is Dierk’s bar, and it’s a 3 story bar, the first floor has more of a restaurant vibe with live music. On the second floor, there is a DJ and it has a club-like feel where you can dance. Then, the rooftop simply offers amazing views of the city. There’s also a whiskey row in Scottsdale, AZ.
