“SO YOU WANNA SAY ‘YEEHAW’ AND EAT CHICKEN & BISCUITS
IN THE CITY OF MUSIC, YES?”
*HUGE shout-out to my MOH for planning a killer bachelorette trip and making it so memorable. xoxo
Nashville is a fu*#ing blast – and don’t @ me about it. It’s not here to play, and it’s not for the faint of heart. It is, however, a good compromise between Crazy Vegas Party and Laid Back Charleston. And that’s why I chose it for my bachelorette weekend.
You will eat some of the best food, meet some of the nicest people, and rock out 24/7 to live country music *and some other genres occasionally* Our time was limited as we went on a Saturday through Monday trip. In case you are wondering if the City of Music shuts down on Sundays, it doesn’t. You will still be able to eat all the good food and dance to the beat of live music – all while enjoying crowded but not packed bars (my friends and I don’t like being squished like sardines any more than you do).
First things first – rent an AirBNB house! Live a little bit of a lush life while you’re there. It’s worth it, treat yoself! Especially considering you can rent a house nightly for the price of a hotel room rate. You may be a short Uber ride into downtown, but it will be SO worth it and a little bit of luxury never hurt no one. Here is a link to the house we stayed in. Highly recommend for a group of 7-10 or so people.
HERE’S WHAT I’D RECOMMEND:
- You must must MUST take part in the Ponton Saloon (essentially a booze cruise with good country jams and BYOB)
- DEFINITELY eat brunch at the Tavern over the weekend (worth the wait but you can also call ahead on your way there to put your name in) and while you wait you can drink at the bar HEYOOOO
- More places to EAT:
Nashville hot chicken and Mac n cheese – ACME
Solid choice for casual lunch and drinks – Jason Aldean’s Kitchen & Rooftop Bar
Grab coffee – 8th and Roast
- Hit the BARS baby – Tootsies, ACME, Nudie’s, and Honky Tonk Central are all blasts day or night.
*A lot of the bars are open until 3 AM which makes for a bomb ass time if your group can rally
Essentially, Nashville is a hell of a time and a lot to fit in while there for 48 hours – but it is doable! The food is great, people are chatty, and bar scene is poppin’ off. Already thinking about another girl’s trip because there is so much to see and do.
Have you been to Nashville or are you thinking of planning a trip?! LMK if you’ve heard of other site-seeing I didn’t mention as I’d love to know for my next NASH BASH.
