Book Your Events in Music City
Nashville is one of the hottest cities in America, and it seems the rest of the country is finally catching onto that fact. After topping the latest “Best Of” lists in several well-respected publications and blogs, Nashville has become a paragon of taste, entertainment, dining, and business. The New York Times says “Nashville’s Latest Big Hit Could Be the City Itself,” and Forbes calls Nashville “Nowville.” If that’s not enough to convince you your next event should be hosted right here in Music City, here are a few more reasons.
No other city offers the same entertainment possibilities Nashville does. Take the Schermerhorn Symphony Center for example. This elegant hall offers several meeting spaces for groups of 20 to 2,000, depending on the accommodations you choose. You can even arrange for private concerts for your event.
The Ryman Auditorium is also available for corporate and social gatherings. Who wouldn’t want to spend an evening in the first church of country music? You can make use of the entry hall and the auditorium for your meeting, and then enjoy some entertainment afterwards. Every band in town would jump at the chance to perform for your event if it meant an opportunity to play the Ryman.
There’s not a person in the country who hasn’t heard of the Opryland Hotel, and almost anyone would travel to Nashville for a chance to see the lush gardens and atrium inside. With over 600,000 square feet of meeting space, you won’t even need to leave the hotel for your event.
Nashville’s only five-star hotel is the Hermitage Hotel, though the Omni Hotel opening soon may force this Music City legend to share that title. If you’re looking for accommodations that pamper your event attendees, the Hermitage Hotel is your No. 1 choice. With plenty of meeting rooms available, you can hold many of your sessions right there in the hotel.
You also won’t need to cart everyone to a cafeteria or buffet to make sure they get to eat. Plenty of restaurants in Nashville offer enough seating for large groups, including the Stock-Yard, which is one of the country’s premier steakhouses. The Stock-Yard Steakhouse can seat up to 500 people in private dining rooms, as long as you give the staff plenty of notice. One bite of its famous filet mignon, and you’ll understand what the fuss is about.
If you’re planning events for smaller groups, Watermark in the Gulch is an excellent choice. This chef-driven restaurant can accommodate up to 60 people and offers creative American dishes with international twists. You’ll love the sleek, elegant décor, and the outdoor dining area is the place to be when spring and autumn visit Nashville.
Music City Center
A convention center this big deserves its own category. With 1.2 million square feet of event and meeting space, no other event hall in the South can compare. This venue has attracted attention from all over the globe and is projected to pull in up to 75 percent of the nation’s convention and event business. Featuring artwork from some of the premier artists in the country, an event at the Music City Center is a feast for all senses. You can also rest assured the building is designed for eco-friendly operation, as evidenced by the four-acre grass roof installed to collect rainwater. As you might expect, most of the bookings are already reserved for the next two or three years, but there is still time to get your meeting or event scheduled.
