Best Restaurants For Your Nashville Bachelorette Party
Speaking of food, we have compiled some of the best restaurants for you to try for your bachelorette dinner in Nashville or a quick bit to eat between activities. Nashville, with its mix of city life along with shaded river spots perfect for a bachelorette picnic, is known for its barbeque, hot chicken, and southern hospitality.
We love a good breakfast as well, so we have included some options for the early bird as well. Just don’t forget to try a famous buttermilk biscuit – they may have started in Persia but have made a name for themselves in the southern U.S.A and for a good reason too. Make sure your bride-to-be washes it all down with a shot of good ol’ Tennessee whiskey!
Five Daughters Bakery
Start your morning off with a unique donut from Five Daughters Bakery! With three locations across Nashville, you won’t have to travel far to try one of their famous 100-layer croissant-styled donuts!
A perfect prop for all of your insta stories plus a tasty treat to start the day right, this is the perfect beginning to your bachelorette weekend in Nashville! You won’t regret ordering a vanilla creme, chocolate sea salt, or one of their other monthly rotating flavors.
Maybe you will even run into the owners, who named their bakery after their own five daughters!
Remember those biscuits we mentioned earlier? Well this is the place to get them! Biscuit Love gives back a portion of their sales to the community to honor their motto – food for good – so you can get a bite to eat while supporting a good cause.
Located in the popular Gulca area, everything is made from scratch every day from classic biscuits and gravy to fried chicken or a southern benny.
Don’t forget to try the homemade jam while you are here that perfectly compliments the flakiness of your biscuit (or two!).
Butcher and the Bee
For a perfect bachelorette dinner in Nashville, we recommend the family-style menu at the Butcher and the Bee. It is a great way for your entire girl gang to try a variety of dishes without breaking the bank. You are going to want to put this on your Weekend In Nashville Itinerary!
The dishes are middle eastern/Mediterranean in nature and the menu does often change to suit what is in season. It includes items like whipped feta, hummus, and whole Moroccan-cooked chickens.
With an option to sit on either the patio or inside the industrial-style building, this restaurant is the perfect scene to sit around the table and share all the reasons you love your bride-to-be!
