Fifth + Broadway
5036 Broadway Place
Nashville, TN 37203

Fifth + Broadway is one of my favorite places in Nashville! There is no lack of dining to choose from here. You could choose the more formal option at one of their sit-down restaurants, or you can mix and match food from the many assembly hall restaurants! Stunning roof top views, great food, and top notch shopping is a great way to spend the day! Also, be sure and check out the National Museum of African American Music while there.

Dinner + Drinks at Fairlane Hotel
401 Union Street
Nashville, TN 37219

Nashville’s hotels are a great place to find fun bars and exquisite restaurants. Visit the current pop-up bar for some fun pre-dinner drinks and appetizers (the pop-up bar changes themes throughout the year). Then have a nice dinner at Ellington’s Restaurant. The views of the city are stunning! Every Tuesday evening, they offer a taste of Tennessee whiskey with their experts, special pricing included!

Try a painting class at a local studio

If you want a fun, interactive experience, check out one of the local paint studios! No creative or artistic skills are needed. Painting with a Twist is all about connecting over a glass of wine, your favorite snacks and a night of laughs. Most locations are BYOW (bring your own wine) but they do supply glasses and corkscrews. Just figure out if you’re in a red, white or rosé mood and pack accordingly.

At Pinot’s Palette in Franklin, you can experience an unforgettable evening of fun, drinks, and painting in Franklin! They provide everything you need for a great night out. Wine, Cocktails, Non-Alcoholic Drinks, and Snacks are available for purchase; we do not allow BYOB.

For a different type of painting experience, check out Art Urban. Art Urban Nashville is an artistically inspired art studio and the paint and sip headquarters of Nashville, TN. Art Urban Nashville offers splatter paint & painting classes every week at our location. They supply everything you need! Slip into a paint suit or wear clothes that you can get dirty if you like. Choose your colors and create something amazing using different brushes & supplies!
