This speakeasy is off the beaten path of Nashville’s Broadway, but that’s exactly what draws people to it. Housed in a nondescript building, this cocktail bar usually has a long wait, but it’s worth it. Once you get inside the cozy space, there are no traditional bar menus. Instead, a mixologist works with you to find out what flavor profiles you like for a custom drink. The dimly lit space is perfect for a date night or a break from the crowded bars on the strip.
