A Mixology Speakeasy in Nashville?
Readers of this “column” know of my great love for the Nashville Honky Tonk scene. (Don’t worry more individual Honky Tonk reviews are in the works.) Variety, however, is the spice of life, and it’s available in Nashville, too.
One of my favorite offbeat spots is The Patterson House, 1711 Division St., open 5 pm - 3 am, seven days a week.
They serve unique food and drink and they’re located just around the corner from Vandy/Belmont.
This is one of those places where you give your name to the hostess and wait to get in, but it’s worth it.
Inside a velvet drape is an 1890s style bar/library where all you can order are exotic drinks and deliciously different apps.
Patterson House’s website is deliberately uninformative, so the best I can do for you on food and drink menu are to Google some images for you.
Suffice it to say, this is a major change of pace from the beer, whiskey and twang of lower Broadway.
Call ahead to check on how long the wait is: (615) 636-7724. Given that most ESXers will be out on the town Mon-Wed., it shouldn’t be too bad.
