Hall’s Chophouse-The Hall family opened the doors of Halls Chophouse Charleston in 2009, but their pursuit of exceptional hospitality started long before.
Skull’s Rainbow Room-Circa-1948 speakeasy-style lounge offering elevated American fare, craft sips & nightly burlesque.
Twelve Thirty Club – Supper Club- Swanky venue offering modern regional cuisine, plus a bar, live music & rooftop dining.
Urban Grub *personal fav* -Stylishly rustic eatery with an extensive raw bar serving Southern & seafood specialties.
Sixty-Vines-Casual New American kitchen & wine bar offering bites & wines on tap in spacious, modern surrounds.
Etch-Open-kitchen setting for eclectic, upscale dining, plus a rich cocktail & wine list.
Liberty Common-Liberty Common is yet another Nashville restaurant that offers an awesome brunch experience. The restaurant has a French brasserie vibe with a modern Southern influence.

Josephine-When anyone comes to visit town, Josephine is my first choice for brunch in Nashville. Try the Josephine Benedict with country ham and brown butter hollandaise or the glazed cinnamon raisin biscuits.
Peninsula- For a nice night out, Peninsula in East Nashville is one of the best places to go. The cozy, intimate restaurant specializes in Spanish and Portuguese-inspired cuisine. The restaurant’s menu changes frequently depending on what seasonal ingredients are available.
Henrietta Red- For a chic, trendy dining experience, try Henrietta Red in Germantown. Even though Nashville is nowhere near a coast, this restaurant manages to offer an array of delicious seafood options, including a raw oyster bar.

Activities in Nashville
Old Town Trolly Tours Nashville
The very mention of Nashville often conjures up the image of a stage full of ornate boot and cowboy hat clad, banjo picking entertainers performing in front of star-struck concertgoers keeping time to the rhythm and dreaming of one day gracing that stage themselves. While that’s a common scenario, we’re going to show you that Nashville is so much more than that.

Grand Ole Opry/Tour
The Grand Ole Opry is a weekly American country music stage concert in Nashville, Tennessee, founded on November 28, 1925, by George D. Hay as a one-hour radio “barn dance” on WSM. Currently owned and operated by Opry Entertainment, it is the longest-running radio broadcast in US history.

Ryman Auditorium
Our story starts with an 1885 tent revival led by fiery evangelist Sam Jones and attended by 5,000 people, including steamboat captain and prominent Nashville businessman Thomas G. Ryman. The captain was so unexpectedly moved by the experience that he dedicated his life and fortune to building and constructing the Union Gospel Tabernacle, a place where all people could gather and worship. When Ryman died, its name was changed to honor his legacy.

Listening Room Café
Performances by singer-songwriters plus American eats & cocktails offered in an intimate setting

Goo Goo Chocolate Co
What a Cluster!
In 1912, in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville, TN, America’s first combination candy bar was invented. A roundish mound of caramel, marshmallow nougat, fresh roasted peanuts and real milk chocolate; its renegade shape was more difficult to wrap than the conventional rectangular or square shapes of the day. More importantly, this was the first-time multiple elements were being mass-produced in a retail confection. Before the advent of the Goo Goo Cluster, candy bar manufacturing consisted of bars solely using chocolate, caramel or taffy. The Goo Goo Cluster represented the first-time a bar consisted of more than just one principal ingredient.
