Support the Hospitality Industry

Ways you can support the people and places that extend Nashville's well-known Southern hospitality to the world.

The hospitality industry - hotels, restaurants, attractions, tours, and shops - have taken a hit in the interest of public health and safety. But you can still support the people and places that extend Nashville's well-known Southern hospitality to the world. Here are some ideas.

Love Thy Neighborhoods

Neighborhood businesses throughout the city are what makes Nashville unique and authentic, and we need to do all we can to make sure they survive. Support your favorite local neighborhood businesses and keep Music City singing. Find featured Nashville businesses, exclusive deals, and more.

Music City Bandwidth

Music City Bandwidth presented by Jack Daniel's hosts 30 concerts at 15 independent Nashville music venues, providing gigs for 120 Nashville-based musicians of diverse genres. Now through October, show your support by donating or tuning in to the series of free virtual concerts as Nashville artists perform on an empty stage at a local music venue.

Shop Nashville

Shop in-store safely or online at one of Nashville's many local businesses. Find clothes, books, specialty food items, gift cards, and more.

Dine with Nashville

Restaurants are increasing dine-in capacity through the phases of re-opening and many are offering delivery and takeout options. Have your next meal from a local restaurant and enjoy it inside the clean restaurant or in the comfort of your own home. You can also tip a service industry worker through serviceindustry.tips!

Buy Gift Cards

Most attractions, restaurants, and shops offer gift cards. So even if you're not visiting them now, buy a gift card for when you do. Or stock up and give out as presents to loved ones on special holidays throughout the year. Check out Downtown Dollars gift cards for downtown merchants.

Donate to the COVID-19 Response Fund

In partnership with Mayor John Cooper's office, United Way of Greater Nashville is hosting a COVID-19 Response Fund to provide local organizations with flexible funding to assist and support individuals and families who are disproportionally impacted by coronavirus and the health and economic consequences of this outbreak.
