Bars And Restaurants In A Historic Warehouse

The Cumberland River once served as a major shipping lane for riverboats carrying goods to the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Warehouses dotted the downtown Nashville area, housing goods as they were waiting for transport.

Eventually, many of those warehouses were abandoned and left to fall into a state of disrepair. That was until entrepreneurs saw an opportunity and ran with it.

Many of these historic warehouses have been renovated and given new life as apartments, condos, restaurants, and bars. Let no trip to Nashville be completed without stopping at one of these industrial-style bars with live music, drinks, and food.

Pinewood Social

A former trolley barn, this entertainment venue has a vintage bowling alley, live stage shows, and an outdoor bocce court. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Drinks are served from a vintage 1970 Airstream trailer.

Never Never

Never Never was once a welding shop on Houston street. Enjoy food, drinks, and live music in a rustic industrial setting.

Old Glory

This building was once the boiler room for one of Nashville’s largest steam cleaners. Many of the original features have been kept and incorporated into the decor. Food and drinks are served daily.

Acme Feed And Seed

This impressive reinforced concrete building has housed over 10 different businesses since 1890. The Acme Feed and Hatchery store moved into this location in 1943. Eventually, the business closed and sat vacant until 2014. It was renovated and became Acme Feed and Seed, serving food and drinks, including local craft beer. There is live music to enjoy and the rooftop bar has an impressive view of the Cumberland River.
