Favorite Place in Nashville

If you haven’t caught on by now, we have a healthy obsession with all things shoe related. We strongly believe that a great pair of shoes can make or break your outfit. In fact, we’re so obsessed with shoes, we want to serve up our shoes styles to an even bigger audience, and that’s why, this month, we’re heading to Nashville to attend the Southern Women’s Show!

For those of you who are unfamiliar, the Southern Women’s Show is an annual event that is targeted specifically at women. It’s essentially like one big mega-shopping event, where you’ll find all the trendiest boutiques selling clothing, jewelry, beauty products, and, of course, shoes!

If you’re in Nashville between March 7 and 11th, and you’re looking for something fun to do, grab your girlfriends, and come find us at Booths 603 and 605. We’ll have all your favorite shoe styles waiting.

And hey, while you’re at it after you’ve attended the event, why not check out some of our favorite places to eat and shop in Nashville?

With so much to do, Nashville can make for a great weekend getaway, and with the Southern Women’s Show on your agenda, we just know you’re going to love your trip to Nashville!

If hitting up brunch is one of your favorite past-times, we can’t say enough good things about The Chef & I.

With rave reviews, this is one of those spots that you’ll walk away from filling full and satisfied, but also sad that the experience is over. It’s truly just that good.

For brunch, try out the Chef’s Four Course Tasting, where you’ll be hit with a delicious assortment of culinary delights, or pick from the expansive brunch menu. And, of course, don’t forget to order yourself a bottomless Mimosa. It’s a must when we’re talking about brunch.

2. 5th & Taylor

Is there ever such a thing as too much brunch?

Of course not!

And that’s why we want to share this gem-of-a-restaurant with you: 5th & Taylor.

With an expansive menu, there are plenty of options beyond brunch, but with their cozy, family-style atmosphere, this is one of those spots that we think is perfectly suited for brunch.

In addition, with the high ceilings, exposed brick, and plenty of natural light, this brunch spot will not only satisfy your belly, it’ll also give you that warm and fuzzy feeling with its impressive interior.

See it for yourself, and we’ve got a feeling you’ll quickly understand what we’re raving about.

3. Barista Parlor Coffee Shop

With so much to do and see in Nashville, we get it, exhaustion can set in.

When you’re not exactly famished, but you’re looking for a spot to rest your feet and grab a quick pick-me-up, we highly recommend stepping into Barista Parlor Coffee Shop.

All about serving up freshly-roasted coffee that will please even the pickiest coffee- enthusiasts, you can’t visit Nashville and not check out this delightful spot. Even the interior is bound to please!

4. Old Glory

This is an easy spot to miss, but luckily, we’ve got your back.

Old Glory is a bar/lounge located in what used to be the boiler room of White Way Cleaners (a.k.a. the largest steam cleaning facility in Nashville). There is no sign on the door, but when you spot the golden triangle on the corner of Edgehill Avenue, you’ll know you’ve arrived.

Step inside Old Glory, admire the industrial decor, and be prepared to try a delicious cocktail (or two). With that old speakeasy feel, Old Glory is an absolute must when visiting Nashville.

5. The Patterson House

While we’re on the subject of drinks, it would be a shame if we didn’t also let you know about The Patterson House.

Known for their upscale feel, this is the spot you head to when you feel like throwing on a pair of heels and your best dress.

Again, this bar has that old speakeasy feel, giving it a sense of exclusivity and old-world charm. For a cocktail you can savor and delight in, we have no doubts that The Patterson House will be a spot to remember.

6. Imogene + Willie

While we’re sure you’ll get your share of shopping in at The Southern Women’s show, we wanted to suggest one Nashville-based shop that’s an absolute must for any fashion enthusiast.

Imogene + Willie is a shop that is dedicated to providing perfectly fitted jeans. They carry both men’s and women’s styles, and no, these aren’t your basic pair of jeans. These are the pair of jeans that you’re going to fall in love with the moment you put them on.

Not to mention, even the Imogene + Willie flagship store in Nashville itself is worth checking out for their rustic and eclectic decor.

Trust us, don’t leave Nashville without scooping up a pair of Imogene + Willie jeans. Your wardrobe will thank you.
