Out of Office: Nashville

Sep 17, 2017

Out of Office: Nashville


Every time I tell people I grew up in Nashville, I get one of two answers: “I’ve always wanted to go! Definitely need to make a trip there soon!” or “Yes, I love Nashville!” It’s a place everyone seems to falls in love with, because it has its own music-filled, butter-laden, denim-drenched charm

So here I am—your trusty first generation Indian-American—a Nashville-raised, LA-based advocate for my hometown. But why should you care about my opinions? Well, I did live there for twenty years of my life and also, my brother is the unofficial mayor. Anyways, I left the urine-soaked streets of DTLA to step into the land of jam-slathered biscuits and curl-hating humidity to bring you the best of my city. Of course, it was necessary to make this completely social media friendly, since, let’s be honest, that’s half of the reason you’re going anyways.

Robert’s Western World

Face it, you’re going to end up going to Nashville’s famous honky tonk bars. So we recommend making a pitstop at Robert’s for the $5 Recession Special: A fried bologna sandwich, chips, and an ice cold PBR.

Broadway Brewhouse 

One word: Bushwackers. I could definitely tell you all about these—actually warn you all about them—but instead, I’m just going to let you handle this one yourself. The folks at Broadway Brewhouse definitely have the best ones in town, so be sure to visit them for your first Bushwacker experience.

Hattie B’s 

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the delicious terror itself: NASHVILLE HOT CHICKEN. While you can certainly head to Prince’s for an authentic experience, if you’re finishing up a few bushwackers near by and want some of the best hot chicken in the city, we highly recommend Hattie B’s. We’re leaving this to Snapchat because your before and after faces should be available for a limited time only.
