Nashville’s historic Gulch District, with its distinct industrial history, originally housed the downtown railroad terminal. From the turn of the century until the 1950s, more than 100 trains arrived and departed from The Gulch daily.
Today, the Gulch District has developed into a hotspot for young urbanites. The Gulch has perfectly combined its industrial background with a modern contemporary style. Old warehouses have been renovated into residential and office space, and upscale restaurants and a vibrant nightlife have made The Gulch one of the hottest neighborhoods in Nashville.
The Gulch holds an impressive variety of restaurants to serve the appetites of anyone, anytime. Each restaurant is different and offers an experience for both body and soul.
