Hey Nashville! The temperatures in the 10-day forecast are looking mighty fine and that pretty much means one thing: #patioweather. We’ve rounded up our favorite places to eat outside in Music City for you, your friends and your four-legged fur balls.
“Am I at a country club or a restaurant?” is one question you might be asking yourself at Pinewood Social. The restaurant is well known for its’ retro bowling alley indoors but it’s just as cool outside this time of year. They’ve got two dipping pools, bocce ball, ping pong, lounge chairs and a special patio menu available from a 30-foot airstream. The patio is open from 10 AM to 10 PM.
Nothing says warm weather like BBQ on the patio and Martin’s SoBro is the place to do it. Their upstairs patio has an awesome vibe with a greenhouse-like atmosphere and entertainment such as darts and a stage for live music. They’ve got plenty of picnic tables to sit down and enjoy their mouth-watering West Tennessee Whole Hog BBQ (which is smoked in house daily).
A meal with a view! Downtown Nashville is seriously lacking in riverfront dining options but that’s just another reason we love Blue Moon Waterfront Grille SO MUCH. Enjoy delicious food while taking in views of the water from Rock Harbor Marina.
Saint Anejo comes alive when the temperatures go up. The restaurant has an indoor/outdoor bar as well as a bunch of convertible windows that open up the whole restaurant to the outside. The perfect place for a marg, tacos and plenty of warm weather vibes.
There are so many reasons the Band Box is one of the greatest patios in all of Nashville but we’re especially excited about this hot spot right now since it’s opening weekend for the Nashville Sounds! The Band Box is an outdoor bar and restaurant located at First Tennessee Park in right field and has all kinds of seating options from tables to sofas. The entertainment here is endless: Sounds baseball, ping-pong tables, putt-putt golf, corn hole, giant Jenga, shuffleboard and more.
L.A. Jackson is one of the hottest restaurant/bars in the Gulch which is one of the hottest areas of Nashville. They’re located on the rooftop of the hotel, the Thompson Nashville. The food, drinks and views are all incredible. They often have DJs on the weekends.
The Pharmacy in East Nashville is a Nashville favorite. It’s known for its’ burgers and beer garden, which is filled with picnic tables and stringed lights. A perfect spot for a casual dinner outside. On especially warm nights, their milkshakes really hit the spot.
If you’re wanting to dine with some of the best views of our beloved city, Acme Feed & Seed is a no-brainer. Their open-air rooftop patio overlooks downtown with awesome views of Broadway, Nissan Stadium and the Cumberland River. Besides grabbing grub, their patio is a great place to take in some live music (check their calendar for the upcoming artists). Hello, Nashville vibes.
Mmm.. Bar Taco. Not only are their street tacos 100+ but the vibes here are very coastal. You might even feel like you’re on vacation. Their patio is also facing the busy 12th Avenue South so a nice spot to relax and people-watch.
Double Dogs is a popular sports bar in Nashville (they also have a location in Hillsboro Village) but this ain’t your average “sports bar food”. Their most popular item is the Bo’s Dog Bowl Nachos which is pretty much what it sounds like.. delicious nachos served in a dog bowl. As you’d guess, this is one of the most dog-friendly patios in town.
