Sazerac, similar to what you'll get at City House — Photo courtesy of Quinn DombrowskiIf you only have one night in Nashville and you're craving a great cocktail, locals would send you to City House, located in Germantown near downtown. The City House cocktail menu is particularly divine and takes full advantage of the artisanal cocktail movement. You'll definitely see drinks here you haven't seen on any other menu, and the fun is in the dare. Scotch and orange liqueur? Try it for a completely different cocktail experience.
City House makes a mean Old Fashioned, and knows how to tease the taste buds with their Schmancy Sazerac. Loyal to local ingredients and suppliers, the restaurant has its own in-house lemon vodka, which is particularly tantalizing. Also tasty: the Corsair Triple Smoke and Corsair Red Absinthe they use in their Henry and The Coz. A full menu of unforgettable drinks tops off a meal that fills and satisfies.
Also renowned for its dinner menu, City House offers an Italian menu with a twist. From their zucchini, wheat berries, torpedo onions, pecan pesto and pecorino antipasto to the bread gnocchi, pork, peppers, cider vinegar, and pecorino pasta, City House will have you savoring every bite.
When you move onto dessert, and dessert you must try, pair the buttermilk panna cotta or almond ricotta pound cake with one of their dessert cocktails. Make a night to remember, and head over to the City House for the perfect cocktail and a remarkable evening.
