Best bars in Nashville

Pub

“Always has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They are as close as you’re going to get to Dublin here in Tennessee and always have live music. This is all ages. (the food at McNamara’s isn’t half bad either… I’d suggest you steer clear of The Ruben though. Too dry!)”

Cocktail Bar

“Elevated Diner Fare with a Casual Setting. Biscuits to Brussels, Nashville Hot Chicken & Waffles to Philly Cheesesteaks, it’s all made to order. That fried pie you ordered wasn’t made in the mornin; it was made for you. The real question: do you want your Philly ‘wit or witout onions?’”

American Restaurant

“The food here is great! I may be a bit partial... but I'm not the only one saying it! There is live music in the evenings beginning around 7pm until 10:30 or later on weekends. You will find me singing there occasionally (so, yeah, I'm partial :) ) Try the prime rib or any of the pasta dishes, or the HOT CHICKEN-better than Hattie B's. They have great monthly specials, too! And keep your eyes peeled. You never know who might come in, especially after the Opry...”

“The HOTTEST Hot Chicken! I recommend this place ... I do not recommend the “Hiroshima” Hot Chicken. It’s an old-school Nashville sports bar. Very close to Opry Mills Mall.”
