A trendy, artistic space accented with tall windows and candlelit tables, the dining area is both romantic and formal. It's a preferred place for business dinners. The gourmet fare has strange names but creative flavor combinations. Duck, steak and seafood entrees come with curry sauces, Thai vegetables and almond-crusted breadings. Diners can order wine and mixed drinks with meals, but the real drinking takes place next door in the "bar car."
Country Music stars Travis Tritt and Lorrie Morgan have visited this Idle Hour Tavern, along with Lee Roy Purnell and David Lee Murphy. What brings them here? Tradition. For decades Dianne and Bobby Herald have hosted up-and-coming artists in what they call "a little old beer bar." Sure, they serve beer, but they also serve some of the best live country music in Nashville. Top artists still come by to perform for the packed house, and they usually stick around to toss back a cold one. Domestic beer is super cheap, and chips and pizza are served all night.
Located in the historic Cannery building, Mercy Lounge has an interesting past. It began its journey in 1863 as a flour mill and later became a coffee grinding shop. In 1957, the Dale Company took over the building and manufactured processed food items, such as jams, peanut butter and jelly. In the early 1970s, a restaurant and theater sprang up in the building. Famous artists such as Jimmy Cliff, Iggy Pop, Lenny Kravitz and Robin Trouer have performed at this venue. The lounge has a seating capacity of 500 and an adjacent room that has pool tables and pinball machines. The Mercy Lounge opens its doors at 8 in the evening every day except Sunday.
Blackstone is a great choice for casual dining with a group of friends. The pizzas here are of the build-your-own variety with ample amounts of vegetables, meats and cheeses, and your choice of crust. The real draw is the beer. All varieties are brewed on-site and include something for everyone, lager, ale, pilsner, stout, pale, you name it, they brew it.
Club Excess Orbit is an amazing nightclub, located in downtown Nashville. This alcohol free nightclub has a fantastic ambience and brilliant interiors, supported by an excellent sound and lighting system. Famous DJs spin hit tracks, that the crowds enjoy till the wee hours of morning. Although there aren't alcoholic drinks available, there is still a pretty decent list of juices and other non alcoholic drinks like Blow Pops that party animals could sip on.

Simple decor, simple clientele and a simple mission: serve the best cheeseburgers in town and keep the beer cold. The cheeseburgers are fabulous. Each is a quarter pound of beef grilled to order, served on a grilled multi-grain bun. The beer is equally enticing. Dollar long-necks provide the perfect refreshment on hot days. Be content with domestics, though, because imports don't find their way to this bar.
Greasy pub meals, lots of soda and beer, and an ambiance that looks quite mysterious with its smoky edge. If you like the sound of that, and you are the impulsive, not so choosy sort, who really doesn't care about the music as long as its live, then you need to head straight for the Moeka Lounge. Please note: This is not the ideal place to bring your date, but it can be the perfect place to chill out with your buddies, especially if you are looking for a place that doesn't really care if you dress nice our not. The Moeka Lounge does charge you a little more than the shop rates for drinks, so yes, make sure you don't budget yourself on the normal suburban store rates when you decide to visit. Call for additional information.
