NASHVILLE, Tenn. – May 11, 2023 – Holston House, a 191-room boutique hotel in downtown Nashville, Tenn., is excited to announce the public opening of its highly anticipated rooftop bar, Heirloom, on Saturday, May 13. Heirloom, located on the top floor of the hotel, offers breathtaking panoramic views of Music City and a chef-curated menu of Southern tapas, cocktails and mocktails.

As the property is housed in the 1920s-era James Robertson hotel, Heirloom resides on the rooftop that was once the city’s tallest garden. Situated amongst Nashville’s skyline, Heirloom offers guests a garden-infused oasis in the heart of the city, complete with open air lounge seating, fire pits and an art-deco mural painted by local artist, Tarabella Aversa, inspired by the space’s roots and Nashville's art scene.

We are eager to open Heirloom not only to our hotel guests but the Nashville community as a whole."

Heirloom's chef-curated menu of small bites and beverages features traditional Southern fare with an artisanal flair. When cultivating this menu, Holston House’s Executive Chef Shannon Williams drew inspiration from her Georgia upbringing, current culinary trends and a colorful flavor profile.

"We are thrilled to unveil Heirloom, a rooftop bar where each dish and drink is crafted with care and creativity,” said Shannon Williams, the executive chef at Holston House. “Fusing rich Southern flavors with the trends of today, we strategically curated a menu that celebrates the best of the South, highlighting locally sourced, seasonal ingredients elevated to new heights."
