I know everyone says this, but I just love visiting Nashville! It never gets old. I probably went 5 or 6 times in 2019 alone but hadn’t been back since before the pandemic! It was so fun to return to one of my favorite cities even for a few days. The trip was somewhat last minute, but Bo’s dad got an Airbnb for the weekend and luckily my mom could watch Baker! 🙂
Since it opened, I have been dying to stay at The Graduate in Nashville! It’s everything I love: sparkly, girly, and PINK! I talked Bo into driving up a day early, so we could spend Thursday night there. That ended up being my favorite part of the getaway! We got drinks at the White Limozeen on the rooftop (which is an absolute MUST), ate dinner at Bartaco, and came back to White Limozeen before we crashed! It wasn’t that crowded, so we got to sit at a table and just hang out for a little while!
Of course I wanted to shoot some content at The Graduate before we left, so I got late checkout and we took pictures around the lobby after brunch! We had eaten at Liberty Common because it came highly recommended, but I was disappointed in my food. The chicken tasted weird! Lol. I’d be willing to give it another chance, though!
We decided to do some afternoon shopping in Green Hills, and I talked Bo into a late lunch at Restoration Hardware. Honestly, that was probably my favorite meal! Hahah. The prime rib sandwich is SO delicious! We checked into our Airbnb afterwards and headed to Broadway that night. I couldn’t believe how crowded it was! Like NYE level on a random July weekend! No surprise here, but we didn’t make it out long!
Bo and I woke up early on Saturday and grabbed coffee at Frothy Monkey and donuts from Five Daughters Bakery! Bo’s dad is obsessed with riding scooters, so we literally rode them for hours around Nashville that afternoon! We covered a lot of ground, and it was pretty fun to see everything that way. We stopped at Church & Union for brunch, and it was great! I ordered the Nashville Hot Chicken Biscuit, which was much better than the Liberty Common one.
We ended the weekend trip back on Broadway that night and visited the Twelve Thirty Club! My new favorite spot. It’s just much more elevated than the other bars on Broadway, and the vibe was IT! The bartender actually followed me on Instagram, which made it even better! Shoutout to Paige! 🙂 They also had some of the best Frozè I’ve ever had! All around 10/10.
