You’ll feel relaxed while lounging in the plush blue velvet booths sipping on one of The Fox’s creative cocktails and lavender kettle corn.
5. Rare Bird
For a breathtaking view of the city, visit Rare Bird where you can hang out at the rooftop bar. Rare Bird is located at the top of hotel Noelle and features two fireplaces. This is another place where you can enjoy a more relaxed scene when you need a break from the cowboy scene.
6. The Patterson House
You may feel a bit confused when you approach The Patterson House because there is no sign on the exterior, unlike most other Nashville bars. Don’t let this keep you away. Once inside, you’ll find a relaxed atmosphere where you must be seated to be served. This means that you may have to wait a few minutes for a seat, but believe us, the wait is worth it. Once seated, you’ll want to take your time enjoying your cocktail and enjoying the company of your friends or significant other.
