Pinewood Social- Nashville

Pinewood Social- Nashville 7

33 Peabody St, Nashville, TN 37210

| Hours 7:00am- 1:00am |

My first time walking into Pinewood Social I thought I had found the greatest hidden gem of all time tucked right off the beaten path of downtown Nashville. Little did I realize that all the Nashville locals knew of the spot! I should have known; this place was way to epic to be a secret!

Owned by brothers Benjamin and Max Goldberg, Pinewood Social was created to offer Nashville a go-to social gathering place. Pinewood Social accommodates their guest’s daily routines by brewing up one of the best cups of coffees to start the day, a comfortable place to meet for a casual lunch with a co-worker, and Pinewood Social even converts to be a happy hour spot to sip on a delicious cocktail after a long work week.

Pinewood Social has a little something for everyone. Not necessarily catered to specifically locals or tourists, this spot is merely a place to meet friends and play! Yes, literally play! Pinewood Social has six reclaimed wood lanes from an old Bowl O’ Rama in Indiana. (It might just be the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.) When the weather is nice, the outdoor patio also offers bocce ball and features two dipping pools for a much needed cool down in the Nashville heat. Read more

50 North 2nd Avenue | Minneapolis, MN 55401 Mon – Thurs: 5:30 -9:30 pm | Fri – Sat: 5:30 -10:30 pm | Sun: 5 – 9:30 pm

Located in North loop neighborhood of Minneapolis, the Bacherlor Farmer is hard to miss past 5:00pm because of the line of guests out the door. The contrast of the historic brick and timber building against the colorful trendy décor, speaks a very similar language as the menu. The restaurant’s menu changes daily and focuses on the roots of Minnesota and Nordic cuisine, all while experimenting with new fresh flavor arrangements. The Bachelor Farmer, equipped with a rooftop garden overlooking the Minneapolis skyline, also practices whole-animal butchery and the use of traditional techniques to preserve spring and summer produce.
