Instagram Travel Thursday: Nashville

Last weekend was spent exploring more of Nashville's amazing food and drink offerings. This was my second time in Nashville so I had some new places I wanted to check out as well as revisiting a couple favorites.

Arriving Saturday afternoon, we headed to one of Nashville's outstanding Breweries, Tennessee Brew Works. Great indoor and outdoor space. Some tasty brews too. It was the perfect way to enjoy a Tennessee sunset on the upstairs patio. Try the Basil Ryeman, a Farmhouse Ale. Tasty and appropriately chosen since we were in town to see a show at the Ryman Auditorium!

A return to one of my very favorite places in East Nashville is the famous Barista Parlor. Coffee and bacon egg cheese biscuit perfection. This place is a MUST if you are in Nashville.

While in Nashville, you have to spend a little time on the famous Broadway in downtown Nashville.  It's the honky tonk strip. Live music from every venue and all the country music you could ever want. And of course cowboy boots! We were in town to see Jason Isbell at the Ryman Auditorium.

We were thrilled to have dinner Sunday night at the famous Husk restaurant featuring Chef Sean Brock. Located not too far from the historic Broadway, the heart of Downtown Nashville, this restaurant redefines Southern cuisine. Heirloom ingredients grown locally (they have their own garden!), an open collaborative kitchen and a stunning location, Husk is definitely a must for a truly amazing dining experience.

Pinewood Social is another must visit while in Nashville. This place is everything from relaxed working coffee shop to dining with friends, to cocktail bar happy hour, it also includes a vintage bowling alley, patio and pool! The relaxed and hip style of this place is somewhere you will want to be!

A quick stop at the famous Gruhn Guitar store! Stunning inventory relocated to 8th Avenue.

Another music stop at Third Man Records, Jack White's record label. Eclectic record shop and studio. Almost all of the records are recorded, printed and pressed in Nashville, TN and produced by Jack White.

Most importantly, when taking a trip to Nashville, bring along some good company! Always more fun to share these amazing experiences with truly great friends. Photo taken at Pub 5 in downtown Nashville.
