L.A. Jackson review image

L.A. Jackson

Located atop the Thompson Hotel, L.A. Jackson is an indoor-outdoor rooftop bar that’s a great starting point for a night out. Besides great views of downtown Nashville, this very swanky spot in The Gulch has lots of comfortable outdoor seating and serves really good cocktails and snacks. If you want a break from the rooftop scene, head down to the hotel lobby, where you can spin vinyl from Jack White’s record label and browse work from local artists.
