Tucked away on the corner on Division Street and 18th Avenue, The Patterson House brings the traditions and nuances of a Prohibition-era speakeasy to life. It’s worth a peek behind the velvet curtains. From the dim lighting, to the upholstered banquettes, to the tin ceilings, The Patterson House combines ambiance and expertise to create some truly unforgettable cocktails. The servers and bartenders here are extremely knowlegable, friendly and able to walk you through the menu and make recommendations based on your own tastes. The Patterson House also offers small plates and appetizers, in case you find yourself in need of a bite while you sip on handcrafted cocktails.
Arguably one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods, there’s plenty to see and do on date night on the other side of the Cumberland River. The Wild Cow, a vegetarian restaurant, provides some welcome dietary relief from the meat and threes around town, though you’re welcome to test your mettle at Prince’s Hot Chicken. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a scoop or two from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. Stop by The 5 Spot for some live music and after-dinner drinks.
