Where We Ate:
My husband and landed at lunch time Monday. After checking in to our hotel we raced out to grab some lunch. BBQ is kind of a big deal to my husband so I knew we would be hitting up as many as possible. I will list them all below, but only one place to me deserves to be mentioned twice. Peg Leg Porker was both of our overall favorite—so if you are headed to Nashville head there for sure!!! Rolf & Daughters was amazing as well—I would make reservations to eat here though because it is fairly popular and kind of small. I LOVED Milk & Honey for brunch—this is a must! I ate the best donut that I have ever had in my life at Five Daughter’s Bakery—like I am trying to figure out how I will ship it here. We ended up at Black Rabbit for dinner on accident after going to The Grand Ole Opery because everything else was closed—cool cocktail spot, but I could live without the food. Looking back I wish we would have gone to Biscuit Love over Kitchen Notes, but I did have very good biscuits and gravy there. Sinema is another dinner place you HAVE TO GO TO—it was really good food!!! Stateside Kitchen is another dinner must—great menu and a super cool atmosphere! We also went to our hotel’s coffee shop everyday—Natura. This is the place that prints pictures on your coffee. I had the lavender latte everyday I was there it was so tasty.

Our Favorite Bars:
We made our way in to a lot of the bars on Broadway, but I am going to just list the ones that we loved. Obviously Whiskey Row was amazing, and if we didn’t have one in AZ we probably would have hung out even more there, but I will say that every time we were there the bands thy had were PHENOMENAL! We went to Tootsie’s because I think you just have to go there. Luke Bryan’s place was a lot of fun. We ended up hanging out there one afternoon for probably 3 hours on the roof top patio—again great music. ACME was neat too especially since it looks over the river, but when we were there it was the only place without music so we didn’t stay long.
What We Did:
Of course we went and saw a show at The Grand Ole Opery. It was an awesome experience, but we lucked out and saw a show where we knew 2 artists performing. I am not sure I would go if we didn’t know who was playing. Maybe then I would have just done the tour. We also went to The Johnny Cash Museum, which was so interesting. I loved seeing their outfits, seeing video clips, and reading his hand written love notes. Shopping and walking around in The Gulch was super fun. We went to Draper James, Uncommon James, Kittenish, E. Allen, and White’s Mercantile. All of these were great, and I would go again.
Where We Stayed:
I don’t have enough words to describe how amazing Dream Nashville was to stay at. It’s a boutique hotel located in Printer’s Alley, and walking distance to Broadway. Every detail was amazing, and I would hands down stay there again.
I hope this helps if you are planning a trip to Nashville soon!!! All my Nashville stories are also saved on my highlights on instagram.
