The Guide To The Best Nashville Bars

Nashville is one of the top destination “it” cities right now. We get lots of messages about the best bars to hit up for a good time so we pulled together a list of some of our favorite spots.¬†Whether you’re a local or coming in for a visit, these spots will definitely make your day drinking or nights out memorable……or actually, maybe not. ūüėČ Cheers!

Pearl Diver

The tagline reads: “exotic lounge with tropical beverages and food.” The vibe is Hawaii meets 1950’s with an airy inside and open patio with lots of seating. Great for a pre-dinner cocktail or Sunday Funday.

From a few fun bar games to the most delicious nachos you will ever eat, this cozy, yet unconventional, spot in an old Nashville warehouse always merits a fun time.


A Nashville local favorite, the aesthetic, vibe and music makes the Flamingo a top spot. No phones allowed inside which is bizarre and oddly freeing at the same time. Be present, dance and have fun.

Pinewood Social

From coffee to cocktails, this is a great spot for grabbing a pre-dinner drink or a day hang that could include bowling or corn hole outside. Pro tip: Check the website for reservations early as the bowling lanes fill up fast.


If you want to go fully back to prohibition days, when you had to know a secret password to get in, Attaboy is your spot. No password needed, but the door doesn’t open unless you knock, the decor is vibey and the cocktails are handcrafted based on your palette. A full creative experience.

The Noelle Hotel –¬†Trade Room Lounge, Make Ready Libations & Rare Bird Rooftop

One of Nashville’s hippest hotels, the Noelle provides three bar vibes that cover all the bases. If you are looking for a chill lounge, secret speakeasy or open rooftop vibe, this is your spot.

308 can be hit or miss crowd wise. On off nights it can feel a little empty, but 90’s night on Friday’s provides an amazing dance party and the cocktails are always delicious. If your night goes late, hit up Dino’s next door for a late night burger and fries.
