The Patterson House

$$$$(615) 244-7989

The Patterson House is a great cocktail bar in Midtown with some very specific rules. No phones are allowed near the bar, except for a quick text, and you can only order drinks from a server. So you may have to wait for a seat, but it shouldn’t be long and you’ll be happy you did since most of the cocktails are around $12 and include things like celery bitters, orgeat, and black pepper. It’s a great place to go with a few friends when you want to drink something unique, eat some tater tots, and have a conversation without having to yell.

Pearl Diver is an island-themed bar in East Nashville that serves way above average drinks and doesn’t feel cliche.

Chaatable review image

Chaatable is one of the most colorful places you could eat at, so bring a group to Sylvan Heights and focus on the chaats.

Lyra is a Middle Eastern spot in East Nashville that serves great food and desserts but won’t empty your wallet - come with a group.
