$$$$Perfect For:Drinking Good Cocktails

Included In

Housed in an inconspicuous concrete-block building in East Nashville, Attaboy isn’t much of a looker from the outside. But once you enter the speakeasy’s dimly lit barroom, the cocktails make it clear that this place isn’t messing around. It’s the sister bar to the Attaboy in NYC, and the same rules apply here: there’s no menu and the bartenders just ask you your preferences—favorite liquors, flavor profiles, and your mood that day. And somehow, they never miss. Even the simplest drinks have depth and complexity thanks to surprising additions (creme de cacao in an Old Fashioned, for example), and lighter cocktails like their take on the East Side Ricky will make a gin-believer out of any vodka devotee.
