Elite Traveler Fall 2019


Brisket from Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint

Nashville, Tennessee’s rich musical roots have long been a primary reason to visit Music City. After all, it was here that country music was born: Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Willie Nelson have all, at some point, called the city home. But in recent years, Nashville has skyrocketed as one of the US’s most sought-after destinations. Dozens of luxury properties are being developed, including a Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences, and travelers come in droves to indulge in the booming culinary scene, where award-winning chefs trade hot chicken and heavy meals in favor of simple dishes celebrating classic Southern ingredients. From the trendy Brooklyn- esque East Nashville to the lively Lower Broadway, with plenty of historic attractions in between, you'll have all the more reason to head here for a weekend of gourmet fun.

Get a taste for the city through traditional barbecue joints, art museums and nightlife

Celebrate Tennessee’s whole- hog barbecue tradition with a rack of ribs at the famous Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint . Head to Biscuit Love for its signature ‘bonuts’ (donuts made

from biscuit dough) — we promise they're worth the hour-long wait.

There’s a unique speakeasy culture in the city that serves Prohibition-style cocktails at every corner — if you can find them. Don’t miss two popular haunts: The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club and The Patterson House .

Visit the Frist Art Museum , which hosts rotating contemporary-art exhibitions from famed artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Just steps from Lower Broadway, Nissan Stadium is home to the Tennessee Titans NFL team and hosts the CMA Music Festival each year.
