Hattie B’s Hot Chicken- Nashville

Hattie b's Hot Chicken Nashville
112 19th Ave S (Midtown) OR 5209 Charlotte Pike (West Nash)
11:00  AM until 10:00 PM
There is evidence suggests that spicy fried chicken has been served in Nashville for generations and today it continues to be a never ending debate in Nashville as to which hot chicken restaurant is “the best of the best.” The current dish may have been introduced as early as the 1930’s. It is generally accepted that the originator of hot chicken is Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, which is a huge reason why many locals still claim it as being best. Recently living in Nashville, I must say my personal choice has to be Hattie B’s Hot Chicken.

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
