Looking for the hip and artsy side of town? Head down to East Nashville! The hub of activity in historic East Nashville lies in the area called Five Points, which is home to the Art and Invention Gallery, the popular Tomato Art Show in August and several solid restaurants. A slower-paced alternative to bustling downtown.

  • Restaurants: Serious Food

    Many of the best restaurants in Nashville lie within the East Nashville neighborhood. Providing much of the clout this city possesses as an up-an-coming food capital of the South.  Excellent dining can be found at Marché Artisan Foods, a marketplace and cafe which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a friendly, community-oriented setting.  For a taste of the creative vibe this neighborhood has to offer, try locating the I Dream of Weenie food truck for a unique take on hot dogs.  Also sample cuisine prepared by a James Beard nominee at Lockeland Table.

    The Family Wash is a cozy and laidback venue in East Nashville. A former laundromat, this hangout is an ideal place for a night of live music, good beer (or wine!) and simple, yet delicious food served by a friendly staff - most of whom live in the neighborhood. Keep in mind, the size is quaint; be sure to arrive early for a great seat.  With a beer garden patio and good company, 3 Crow Bar is another must-visit.
