So you’re moving to the Sylvan Park Neighborhood – located slightly west of Downtown. We absolutely adore this charming area. From funky little homes to sophisticated businesses, it is no wonder restaurants and businesses continuously pop up weekly. Because of its proximity to our office, we know some inside scoops about this area and would love to share with you our favorites.
Morning Java: Our top pick is Headquarters – a cozy little place offering the perfect reading vibes. We love taking a lunchtime stroll and grab a cup of joe to cure that afternoon slump. Star Bagel Café, one of the oldest and longest standing bagel shop in Nashville – not only do they have the best bagels around, but they also have wonderful homemade cream cheese. The owners have perfected their bagels using the best organic and local ingredients.
Best Playground: McCabe Community Center – located right in the heart of the Sylvan Park neighborhood, has so much to offer. They have lovely scenic trails perfect for walking or jogging with your fur friends, a good outdoor play set to keep the little ones occupied, and a wonderful golf course to play a few rounds.
Casual Eats: Hugh Baby’s – a new burger joint- is quickly stealing the hearts of the locals. They have freshly made burgers and fries to satisfy the pickiest eaters. For hot chicken lovers, we highly recommend Hattie B’s – you know it’s good when there is always a line out the door. The chicken is always on point – with juicy insides and perfectly seasoned crunchy outside – we recommend the hot-level. For the sports lovers, M.L. Rose is a must – offering a variety of burger and beer options, with TVs on every facing wall.
Family Fun: Richland Park, a year-round farmers market that happens every Saturday morning, offers locally grown vegetables, fruits, and artisan goods. For the active families, I recommend packing a picnic and head to McCabe Community Center. There are plenty of activities for all – play a few rounds of golf, take a stroll or bike the green way, or let the little ones play on the outside jungle gym.
Grown-Up Fun: For trivia lovers, be sure to check out TailGate Brewery every Thursday night at 7:30. For happy hour seekers, we recommend Double Dogs, Edley’s Bar-B-Que, or Local Taco – happening 2 to 7 every day. For the shopaholics, take a stroll through Ellen Gray – a women’s boutique offering sophisticated fashion, accessories, and one-of-a-kind gifts.
Staycation Attractions: I suggest taking the family to Climb Nashville and conquer some heights. They have plenty of walls ranging from easy to hard, climbing lessons, belay lessons, and bouldering. Another great spot to check off the Nashville list is Love Circle. This lovely spot has a wonderful view of Downtown Nashville – pack a yummy picnic and enjoy this cute little hideout.
Unique Spots: If you are looking for a place to buy local fruits, vegetables, honey, cheese, meats, and bread – Produce Place is the place for you. For those with restrictive diets, Vegan Vee – a vegan and gluten free bakery is a must, offering cakes, cupcakes, donuts, and rolls. One of the first of its kind – Blooma Nashville is such an awesome concept, a yoga studio designed especially for moms to-be, new moms, and their families.
