I went to Nashville, Tennessee for a conference in June 2017. I expected to see cowboy hats and hear country music everywhere. I’m just not a fan of either, so I was pleasantly surprised to find Nashville to be quite bourgie. I stayed at the posh boutique hotel, Thompson Nashville. The food and the decor definitely met my standards. In the evening, the roof top bar & restaurant was the place to see and be seen.
Country music wasn’t the only gig in town. I found salsa dancing at Salsa Puerto Rican Restaurant and also at the gay-friendly, Play Dance Bar. Did I mention the bonus drag show?
Nashville definitely brought out the foodie in me. I could have eaten my way through the conference, and I probably did. The number of highly-rated restaurants were just too numerous for me to tackle during a week long visit.
