Wanna see something cool?
Go have yourselves a hamburger at the Oak Bar and Capitol Grille in the Hermitage Hotel. Try the Jack Daniels Single Barrel exclusive. Try an Irish Coffee . Try to find any excuse to go see the mens bathroom. It won Best Restroom in the US in 2008 so the staff is inclined to let ladies look at the vintage 1910 art deco facilities.

Churches are EVERYWHERE
Sometimes, you will literally see a Christian church on every corner. Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, don't matter. Welcome home! Lest we think Nashville is merely the buckle of the bible belt, we also host two Buddhist temples, several Jewish synagogs, a Bahai center, The Islamic Center of Tennessee, and the Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple.
We're sorry about our weird road system
We like to give streets a lot of names. One street blends into another street every few miles or so, it seems… Hillsboro becomes 21st, 8th turns into Rosa Parks, James Robertson Pkwy is also Hwy 11 and Hwy 41, and state road 431 until it turns into Main Street up into the suburbs. It's just a staggering amount of road information, you guys.
Hipsters are EVERYWHERE
But noooo one knows it. You could walk up to the most beardly man you've ever seen with his horn rimmed glasses and skinny jeans and ugly-ass sweater and proclaim him a hipster for all the world to go "duh" at. He wouldn't know what you're talking about.
The Pharmacy has the cure for what ails you
The Pharmacy came on strong winning Best New Restaurant in 2012. Since then it has been awarded Best Burger 2013 and 2014. It also has a literal soda fountain. GO TO THERE!
Remember these apps when you need transportation
Whether you imbibe a bit too much or you straight up don't have wheels, Lyft and Uber will take you anywhere.
