Belly Up to the Best Hotel Bars in Nashville

Hotel bars in Nashville run the gamut from new and trendy to well-established and homegrown.  Each watering hole has something unique to offer and there are plenty of options to suit every nightlife preference in terms of style and location.  Unsurprisingly, Nashville's hotel bars get in on the Music City scene and offer their own live music.  Try the V Lounge at Valentino's for a laidback evening of live piano, or Barlines for a variety of entertainment spanning different music genres.  And in addition to live music, The Bridge Bar has some of the best views in the city.  Looking for some Hollywood glam?  Hit up The Oak Bar at the Hermitage.  From honky-tonks to hip haunts, Nashville has you covered.
