5 "Drinks & A Light Bite" restaurants in Nashville.
When you don’t want to commit to a full dinner (blind date, catching up with an aunt, waiting two hours for a table elsewhere), bars with good food are ideal. Make an easy exit after the first round, or go for a second and maybe some food if it’s going well. Either way, these spots have you covered.
Pearl Diver is an island-themed bar in East Nashville that serves way above average drinks and doesn’t feel cliche.
Robert’s Western World is a legendary honky tonk on Lower Broadway where you go to drink beer and shot combos and dance to Johnny Cash cover bands.
L.A. Jackson atop the Thompson Hotel in The Gulch is where you go with your friends to start your night, check out the view, and have good cocktails.
Duke’s is an East Nashville dive where you go to drink cheep beers and eat a good deli sandwich after having a few too many said-beers.
