Traveling during the holiday season can be intense, to say the least. When you’re craving a break over the next few months, forgo an out-of-state trip and take advantage of one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, Nashville! Music City boasts so many unique events and experiences that are sure to make the short trip feel like you’re worlds away from home! Below we’ll share with you a few of the e.Allen team’s favorite hideaways that will make Nashville your new staycation getaway.
Brunch at Sinema – Cinema recently launched Bottomless Brunch, a new brunch program offering buffet-style stations and an a la carte menu for one fee of $25 per person and $12 for children 12 and under. Bottomless Brunch is every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm. Reservations and walk-ins are both accepted.
Lunch at EiO and the Hive – EiO and the Hive is a new health-focused, fast-casual restaurant created by restauranteur and wellness entrepreneur Jennifer Masley. Guests can expect global flavors using locally-sourced and seasonal ingredients in a welcoming environment.
Dinner at Henley – Henley is a new modern American brasserie in the Aertson Hotel. The name “Henley” is inspired by the iconic shirt made popular in the early 1900s, which was a symbol of rebellion against the rigid clothing of the era. Hints of this inspiration are present in each aspect of Henley, including the design, décor, menu, service, and staff.
Drinks at Attaboy – Another speakeasy, another set of rules. After locating this unassuming East Nashville building, knock on the door and wait for the host to let you in—if there’s room. Once you enter the tiny space, the bartender will pepper you with a series of questions and eventually produce a perfectly customized cocktail. Now that’s service!
Take it all in at Schermerhorn Symphony Center – One of Tennessee’s largest and longest-running nonprofit performing arts organizations, the Nashville Symphony has been an integral part of the Music City sound since 1946. Led by music director Giancarlo Guerrero, the 83-member ensemble performs 170 concerts annually, with a focus on contemporary American orchestral music through collaborations with composers. They have an exciting and diverse schedule in the coming months, check it out here: https://www.nashvillesymphony.org/tickets/
Stay at Thompson Nashville – “Sharing the block with beloved bluegrass and roots music icon The Station Inn, Thompson Hotels celebrates this city’s creative spirit, with Nashville’s own Hastings Architecture Associates and Executive Chef Nathan Duensing weaving an energetic new neighborhood luxury hotel destination into the local fabric. Join us on the rooftop bar for porch sippin’ cocktails, twenty regional brews and spectacular views from downtown Nashville to SoBro. Then head down to Marsh House restaurant for a seafood-focused, Gulf-to-Gulch take on Southern cooking, driven by the bounty of our local farmers and makers.” Did we mention e.Allen’s Gulch location is walking distance from the Thompson? Score!
