A Guide to Nashville’s Chicest New Neighborhood

The Gulch, a rebirth of the city’s old industrial zone, is surprisingly walkable. Here’s where to stop for meals, drinks, vintage guitars, detours into intrinsically Nashvillian style and live bluegrass bands.

IN THE GULCH, a shiny young Nashville neighborhood, a $1-billion-dollar master plan is slowly, steadily turning what was once an industrial wasteland between two interstates into a place non-vagrants would actually want to spend a day. If you’re on foot the Gulch is easily walkable—though also strewn with scooters from a dockless sharing program. Start at the stairs adjacent to the modern rusted-steel facade of the Gulch Crossing building on Demonbreun Street. You’ll descend into the ravine from which the 62-acre (and growing) area gets its name and join the throngs for a southern breakfast at Biscuit Love.
