Nashville is magic. I had the opportunity go to with an amazing group of girlfriends and would really love to make another trip someday soon. Quick picks and snaps below for eating, drinking and shopping (basically the keys to life).
SHOP – the 12 South neighborhood has the best shopping in Nashville
Cadeau – I literally wanted to purchase everything in this shop, and I’m not just saying that. From cards, to cheeky home decor – it’s all just so, so great.
Draper James – preppy, southern, Reese Witherspoon? Doesn’t get much better. And you know how much I love a good stripe.
Imogene & Willie – An outpost of this famous Nashville spot opened in Portland a couple of years ago, but I do have to say nothing beats the original.
White’s Mercantile – “a general store for the modern day tastemaker.” The buying and curating in this store is impeccable. From baby clothes to kitchen towels, they had me convinced that I needed it all. Definitely worth a stop in!
EAT & DRINK
Pinewood Social – We totally fell in love with this place. Bowling and great drinks in a very well designed space.
Honky Tonk Central – Classic Nashville, on Broadway. Three floors of live music and such a fun, party atmosphere!
Losers – This was our first taste of Nashville and I think we were all hooked. Cold beer and live music, EVERYWHERE! The bar next door, called Winners, was closed for a CMA party. Guess we’ll have to go back!
Pedal Tavern – I’ve done Brewcycles or Pedal Taverns in several cities and I would have to say this was one of the most fun. Part of it might have been that the only available slot was 10am on a Saturday, but hey it’s Nashville and the bars are all open at 10am!
The Pharmacy – sometimes you just need a good burger and a Diet Coke.
A few more gems I couldn’t resist sharing!
I hope Nashville is on your travel list!
