Nashville is a city full of life. While it is known for the country music scene… it offers so much more and is on our list of #luxelistapproved destinations.
First up is the heart of the city - Broadway. Lined with bars like Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and Nudie's Honky Tonk, they serve up a surplus of cold brews and live music on each floor. No matter what day of the week - it is almost impossible not to catch sight of a Bachelorette Party ((or ten)). One of my favorite new #luxelistapproved bars, just a block off Broadway, is called Headquarters Beercade.
Headquarters Beercade prides themselves with craft cocktails, craft beer and a whimsical play on Chicago/Southern food. They rotate their drafts as often as possible to create a new experience each time - just don't ask for anything macro/domestic. With over 30 arcade games ((all free)), a 207" projection screen and themed nights like "Savage Bingo"- HQ Beercade brings old school back in the best way possible.
If you prefer the slower side of #luxelistapproved Nashville, than head out to one of the lakes nearby. The lakeside opportunities range from kayaking and fishing to wakeboarding and mass groups of party boats. Percy Priest Lake is known as the "party lake" so be prepared to see two-story pontoon boats complete with on-board grills, water slides, bathrooms and you guessed it - more bachelorette parties.
As for where to stay in Nashville, my hands down favorite is the #luxelistapproved Thompson Nashville. Located in the super trendy Gulch neighborhood it has everything we've come to love from the Luxury Boutique Thompson Hotels including an award winning chef, rooftop bar with city views, kick-ass coffee bar and some of the most stylish rooms around - don't even get me started on the bathtubs!
All of the rooms at the Thompson Nashville have floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek surroundings inspired by the spirit of Nashville with warm hardwood floors and sliding barn doors. However, the Suites steal the show with my favorite #luxelistapproved feature - their claw foot bathtubs. If you upgrade to the Penthouse you won't be disappointed with a freestanding titanium bathtub and floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides of the room!
From the lively spirit of Downtown with features like Broadway and the old school Headquarters Beercade, to the trendy urbanites in the Gulch at the uber luxurious Thompson Hotel - Nashville is the type of city that begs for your return making it #luxelistapproved.
