Designers’ Weekend: Exploring Nashville
As an interior design firm venturing into the heart of Nashville for a new project, our days in Music City promise not only professional pursuits but also a delightful immersion into the city’s eclectic charm. We are sharing with you a weekend guide filled with our favorite city spots.
To start the day, fuel up at Biscuit Love for a decadent biscuit sandwich. Our first stop on the journey through Nashville’s design landscape takes us to the Gulch, where the Frist Art Museum, a former post office boasting breathtaking Art Deco facades, awaits us. Next, the historical Union Station-turned-hotel showcases stunning architecture with original sculptures and stained-glass panels, offering a glimpse into the city’s elegant past. Our sightseeing continues with iconic stops at the Musicians Hall of Fame and the revered Ryman Auditorium.
Lunchtime is a choice between the Assembly Food Hall or the famous Hattie B’s for their irresistible fried chicken. The day progresses with visits to the Johnny Cash Museum, The National Museum of African American Music, and a stroll through Broadway’s Honky Tonks.
Evening plans include a drink at the opulent Hermitage Hotel, offering a peek at its retro Art Deco bathrooms, followed by an exquisite dinner at Chauhan Masala and Ale House. For those still brimming with energy, a visit to Pin’s Mechanical for bowling, arcade games, and a cozy fire pit, or a musical evening at the Station Inn, are perfect options.
The day begins with a visit to LL Market for coffee and pastries from Five Daughters Bakery, followed by a stop at American Paint to craft a custom hat. Exploring the city’s treasures includes a visit to the Parthenon and Cheekwood, an enchanting botanical garden. A scenic drive through Belle Meade, with its historic houses, captures the essence of Nashville’s rich history.
For a night cap, head to Rosemary and Beauty Queen, where sipping a drink on a swing adds a playful twist.
