Where to stay in Nashville
If you are looking for a unique luxury boutique Hotel in Nashville look no further than Union Station Hotel. Situated inside a beautifully-restored 19th century railroad station the hotel exudes an old world charm with the modern comforts of today.
When you enter the hotel lobby it’s like taking a step back in time, when travel was not a necessity, but seen as a luxury. Originally built in 1900, the building’s impressive late-Romanesque Revival design with its turrets and towers was a testament to the US ingenuity and energy. The décor and the overall design of the hotel is exquisite, the attention to detail and general ambiance is captivating.
Located a stone’s throw from downtown Nashville its ideal if want to enjoy the live music and honkey tonks located on Broadway. You can easily walk into town from the Hotel which is great because on the weekend heavy traffic fills the inner city streets.
Union Station Hotel offers a choice of guest rooms each showcasing the unique architectural personality of the hotel’s historic location combined with modern comforts and luxurious amenities. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated and every minute spent in them is a pure delight, you might find it hard to leave, I know I did.
Be sure to stop by the hotel bar for a delicious Bourbon flight and if that’s not your thing why not try one of the hotels signature cocktails.
What to do in Nashville
Brunch at Saint Anejo
If you are looking for a delicious brunch spot close to the hotel head over to Saint Anejo. Serving up Mexican cuisine the menu showcases traditional Mexican food with regionally influenced chef specialities. If it’s not too hot outside the patio is the perfect spot to soak up the sun and enjoy a margarita or two.
Must see murals
Nashville has some amazing murals spotted around the city, I would highly recommend visiting the “I believe in Nashville” mural and the “what lifts you” mural. The “What lifts you” mural is actually located a 5 minute walk from Saint Anejo so be sure to head there before or after brunch.
Did you know Nashville has a replica of the Parthenon in Greece? Me either! It’s a must see when in town, the building itself is beautiful and very impressive. It also has beautiful gardens and a lake surrounding it.
Dinner & Drinks at Whiskey Kitchen
For a relaxed evening with pub favorites, southern classics and wood fired pizzas head over to Whiskey Kitchen for dinner. With an extensive list of cool cocktails accompanying the city's largest collection of world-class whiskeys, bourbons, ryes, and scotches there is something for everyone. Fun Fact: this bar is actually owned by the band Kings of Leon.
Sunset Views of the city
Looking for beautiful views of the city, take a stroll across the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Foot Bridge that crosses the Cumberland River. It’s particularly beautiful late in the evening before the sunsets over the city.
If you visit Nashville without eating hot chicken did you even visit? Nashville is known for its hot chicken and the city’s best can be found at Hattie B’s. Prepare for an hour wait but I promise you it’s worth it. I don’t usually line for food because I feel that after the anticipation its usually a disappointment, trust me this is not the case with Hattie B’s fried hot chicken its totally worth the wait. Note: I got the Large Dark Meat Meal Spice Level: Hot. Be warned when it says it’s Hot it is actually spicy.
If live music is your thing, you have come to the right place. Head into town and check out one of the many bars playing live music most nights of the week. All of the action happens on Broadway with lots of bars, roof top bars and restaurants to choose from.
