Our next Urban Housefitters Quarterly
will feature the hustling and bustling
of East Nashville. Below is a short except from one of our agents on her favorite places in this oh so trendy 'hood:
Favorites in East Nashville
In case you haven’t heard, Nashville is the place to be right now! Specifically East Nashville because
it’s the laid back, artsy section of Music City that is the hub of arts, local music, and award-winning dining. Whether you are planning a trip down or even need a stay-cationin
your own town, I have rounded up a few of my favorites to help you plan your next trip over to “The Island”.
Where to Drink: Urban Cowboy Public House
The perfect ‘night cap’ to ensure you had a day well spent, the Urban Cowboy Public House
offers a funky vibe, friendly atmosphere, and tasty menu. It has indoor and outdoor aspects with a capacity of about 160 guests. The outdoor section has a mix-and-mingle approach, 16-foot fireplace, variety of seating, string lights, and a fire pit.
The menu changes on a frequent basis, allowing the seasoned chefs full creative control. My favorite time to go is on a nice crisp fall night so you can grab a cocktail and cozy up by the fire with your friends all bundled under their awesome blankets!
Where to Stay: The Wendell Home
The Wendell Home
is an Airbnb conveniently located in the heart of East Nashville. Not only is it an Airbnb but you can also rent it for events and photoshoots. This newer construction home has mid-century modern interiors
with bright white walls with black accents make for the perfect back drop for photos. This was the perfect place to stay for 12 girls for a Bachelorette party especially since it’s a short 10 minute Uber ride and your right in downtown! Check
out their Instagram for more info/booking: @thewendellhome
Where to Grab Your Coffee: Cafe Roze
Stop by for the Roze Latte, but stay for the delicious avocado toast and fun cocktail menu. Okay, you could really come here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner since it’s an all day cafe, but
it was just featured as best breakfast spot in the Nashville Lifestyle Magazine. The chef hails from New York City and offers a tasteful menu that will leave you feeling guilt-free since they use many local resources— mostly from the East Nashville
Farmers Market! We love Cafe Roze!
What to do: Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Natural AreaShelby Bottoms
has it all: wildlife, playgrounds, a dog park, ball fields, two golf courses, a fishing lake, and many trials for R&R in nature.The park is primarily rich river bottom land as the name implies with boardwalks
over streams and wetlands and great overlooks of the river. You can easily spend hours enjoying many activities here!
Where to Shop: Fond Objects Records & Project 615
up, Fond Objects Records
has to be one of the coolest places to buy some tunes because it’s not your typical record store. It’s home to many new and used vinyl, books and magazines, custom-made clothing and the only local petting
zoo in East Nashville. It hosts bands in the backyard of the store and shows movies on the outside projector.
As far as clothing, I would hit up Project 615
off of Fatherland to stock up on cool Predators gear or other Nashville themed Tee’s. Project 615 was founded in 2010 and since then has been able to hire over 50 people who are on the path of recovery from addiction,
homelessness and mental illness. Check out their cool t-shirt designs and how they give back: www.project615.com
Where to Eat: Mas Tacos
You won’t be battling tourists at Mas Tacos
, but you can guarantee
all of the locals will be there. It’s a hole in the wall authentic Mexican restaurant. Tamales and tacos you won’t find anywhere else. Sweet potato quinoa and fried avocados are two of my favorites. Don’t go expecting fancy dining with white table
clothes, Mas Tacos is something completely different, and better.
I hope you these recommendations have been helpful as you plan your visit to East Nashville! -Rachel Calvert
