There’s a new bar and social hangout joining Nashville’s speakeasy scene — meet 1865 Club.

The Midtown cocktail lounge held its grand opening on Saturday, April 13 at 610 21st Ave. N., a former tobacco barn and auction house that has since been converted into luxury condos.

Though the space is open to everyone, memberships grant you perks like discounted food and drinks + private events at special rates. Now, let’s get into the menu.

Aside from the whiskey, beer, and wine selection, choosing which craft cocktail to order is made easy with a menu broken down by category — light, sour, stirred, dessert, and classics. Our pick? Training Season, made with tequila or mezcal, aperitif, guava, and pineapple. A handful of light bites range from marinated olives to burrata and olive oil.
