Marie Claire Weekend Trip Guide: Where to Stay, Eat, and Drink in Nashville

BY Natalie DellaMura Blevens

Nashville has become the new travel destination. The eclectic city still holds onto it’s iconic reputation of the “Music City,” but Nashville has reinvented itself as a Southern hotspot in every aspect – food, fashion, rooftops, outdoor activities, you name it. Considering it’s just a few hours on a plane from most cities on the East Coast, it’s also an ideal destination for a weekend getaway. So whether you’re planning a trip for just you and your significant other or all of your best friends, here’s where you’ll want to stay, eat, and drink during a weekend in Nashville.


This new spot has really elevated the Nashville hotel scene. Bobby Hotel has redefined (actually, maybe defined) what southern luxury really is. Stepping into the Nashville scene, just in the Spring of 2018, this boutique hotel has already made its mark in downtown Nashville. It’s located just a few blocks from the infamous Broadway, however this hotel makes you feel like you’re in your own world away from the hustle and bustle, yet still a part of the Nashville coolness. What makes it so intimate is the curated details that have been hidden in every corner of the hotel – from the travel inspired rooms (featuring Paris, New York, London…) to the eclectic glass-covered bathrooms, this hotel is insta-worthy. Not to mention the rooftop. The hotel’s Rooftop Lounge not only has stunning views but also boasts a 1956 Scenic-rouser bus that has been re-purposed into a mini lounge, and completed with a dipping pool, cabanas and modern lounge chairs, it’s the perfect spot to getaway to on a Saturday afternoon. It’s one of those hotels you could get away with never leaving during your entire stay. They even have amazing restaurants and cafes – Tavern at Bobby as well as Bobby’s Garage, the hotel’s hidden bar.

Tip: Book your visit in the winter. The iconic rooftop transforms into a winter hideaway, featuring several heated “igloos” covered in colorful string lights serving winter cocktails including Bobby’s Spiked Hot Chocolate and Bobby’s Spiked Apple Cider.
