Every city seems to have a
“midtown,” and Nashville is no exception.
This bustling neighborhood, extending up Broadway and Division Street,
is home to a variety of hotels, restaurants, and bars that come alive at
A Nashville favorite for years, South Street Original Crab Shack & Authentic Dive Bar is known by locals as simply South Street. This Cajun restaurant serves large portions, spicy entrees, seafood, and barbecue. With a ‘convertible’ dining room and an open upstairs called the Treehouse, South Street is perfect for a casual atmosphere on a warm Southern night.
A few doors down and a world away, the Bound’ry is one of Nashville’s most eclectic places to spend an evening. Dining at the Bound’ry is a true experience. The upscale global cuisine is delectable, and the restaurant itself is a work of art. The décor is best described as a Salvador Dalí painting gone wild. It is eclectic and beautiful at the same time, combining the five senses into one grand experience.
Noshville is a New York-style deli that offers a broad menu of deli favorites like the Reuben and corned beef. Try one of the exceptionally large servings of dessert or the sour pickles found on every table.
Giovanni Ristorante , like the 15-year-old flagship Giovanni in midtown Manhattan, specializes in Tuscan fare. The menu includes risotto, homemade pastas, and seafood, with house-baked breads and an extensive wine program.
With the same ownership as Virago and Whiskey Kitchen, Tavern serves up interesting cocktails and inspired pub food, with the same upscale, hot-spot feel of the trendy family of restaurants.
The Broadway Brewhouse is a place for the true beer connoisseur with over 70 beers on tap and another 100 or so in the coolers. Attached to the Brewhouse is the very affordable Mojo Grill, specializing in Cajun-inspired dishes that will fill your stomach without emptying your wallet.
Located in historic former residence at the corner of 17th Avenue South and Division Street in Midtown, The Patterson House offers a vibe and drink menu that suggests a throwback to the pre-Prohibition era when tempting cocktails and stimulating conversation highlighted a cosmopolitan American nightlife. That drink menu features more than 50 different cocktail recipes, 30 original and 20 classic offerings that remain beloved. Located above their speakeasy cocktail bar, the 30-seat restaurant The Catbird Seat features an ever-changing seven-course menu of seasonally inspired dishes, prepared by acclaimed chefs Josh Habiger and Erik Anderson. Together, they cook in a U-shaped kitchen surrounded by countertop seating, giving patrons the opportunity to observe and interact with the chefs as their food is prepared.
Late night crowds can hit the dance floor with live music at Losers or Winners located next door to each other. So whether you feel like a winner or a loser, you’ll have a place to go. Other late night spots include Rebar, Blue Bar, and Red Door Midtown.
