Coming to Nashville
 
Very excited to be coming to Music City for the Nov 17th game...any recommendations/advice on hotels, things to do, Pred-friendly bars, etc. would be appreciated.

Depends on what you like. Broadway near the arena is pretty nice. I enjoyed the honky tonks.

We do need a sticky thread for these requests. We seem to have 5-6 a year and it's always good to help but would be nice for it to be up there where visitors can see it.

For dining purposes go to O'Charleys. It is greatness.

So, its' changed since I left Tennessee? It used to be a Chili's, Ruby Tuesday's Friday's knockoff. Not very good in my opinion. Much better places in town to eat.

I don't know how long you are staying but hopefully this can give you a little bit of a start. I'm using the arena as a base for everything so distances are from there and not hotels.

Hotels, all are walking distance to the arena but the first 3 are the closest:
-Hilton is across from the arena and connected the Sports Grille (formerly Eddie George's restaurant). Most road teams stay here.
-Renaissance is a block away, on the other side of and connected to the convention center. Some road teams stay here also.
-Hampton Inn is about 1-2 blocks away, by the new Symphony Hall...it's pretty new
-Holiday Inn Express is about 2 or 3 big blocks away.
-Double Tree is a few blocks away
-There are hotels in the West End/Vandy area but they are not walking distance.

Things to do:
If you want touristy things...
-Country Music Hall of Fame is behind the arena
-The Ryman is half a block up from the arena
-Opryland/Grand Ole Opry you need a cab or car.
-Frist Center and Museum is about 2 blocks from the arena (across the street from the Holiday Inn Express)
-Vanderbilt area is a few miles from downtown. (If Vandy is playing a home game I wouldn't go around there)
-Centennial park, is near Vandy. You can see the Parthenon (exact replica of Athens Parthenon). Preds practice at Centennial Sportsplex (other side of the park).
-Lots of souvenir shops on lower Broad and Second Ave. They have goofy redneck and southern things.
-The arena tower has a little souvenir shop and they might have someone in there that could tell you a few more things to do or see or where to eat.
Or you could always just walk around downtown and explore by yourself.



Bars/Restaurants: (anything near the arena is going to be very packed on game days, especially Saturday games...and especially if the weather is nice)
-Anything on lower Broadway (from the arena to the river) is going to be Pred fan friendly. Tootsies is famous, also Legends, the Stage (Those are bars only).
-The Wildhorse is on Second Ave.
-Coyote Ugly is on Seond Ave.
-There seems to be new restaurants popping up on lower broad so I suggest walking around down there a bit if you're undecided.
-Rippys (directly across from arena) is always packed with Pred fans on game days (before and after games)
-Jacks (with the neon 3 flying pink pigs sign) is good BBQ and always packed.
-Hard Rock Cafe is on corner of Broadway and First Ave
-Second Ave also has some bars/restaurants.
-Demo's on Commerce/Third is good. Steak and Spaghetti. Pretty much always crowded before games.
-The Palm, directly across from arena is expensive, but you never know who you might see there.
-Mortons, good steak place a few blocks up. Again, a bit pricey but the chance sightings are good.
-Most other places you'll need a cab or your car.
-Demonbreun Street has some bars.

Hope this is helpful! Welcome to Nashville, hope you have a great time, though not too much if you aren't cheering for the Preds! ;)
