It’s the age-old question, “What drink represents the neighborhood I live in?” Ok, maybe not. But it is a fun way to try out new beverages and restaurants right in your own backyard. We’ve rounded up seven neighborhoods + a local-to-them sip to try for a middle of the week #DrinkUpWeek pick-me-up.
Geist Bar + Restaurant | Fashionably Old
- This charming neighborhood mixes old with the new, hence, “Fashionably Old.” Germantown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places + Geist pays homage to the neighborhood’s name with its European influences.
Fix Juice Co. | Edwin
- This neighborhood is widely known for its horses — specifically, Iroquois, the horse whose influences you’ll find in the title of multiple businesses in the area. So, it only makes sense there are green acres to roam with a green juice in hand. Cue Edwin Warner and Warner Parks’ ~3,195 acres.
Rosemary & Beauty Queen | Too Many People
- Let’s be honest, we were all thinking it. If you live anywhere in East, you likely enjoy staying away from the hum of “busy” that exists over the river. The vibe itself is as important as the drink — enter: eclectic atmospheres like Rosemary & Beauty Queen.
Fido | Local Latte
- Nestled between Vanderbilt + Belmont and housing quaint residential streets amongst Nashville-based shops, Hillsboro Village ranks “very walkable.” Residents run (with Fido 🐶) on all things local, whether that’s the caffeine stretch you need to study at the library all night or run the day’s work meetings.

GreenHouse Bar | Watermelon Mojito
- Living in Green Hills is like being on “vacation time” year-round — whether that’s navigating summer traffic out of season, treating yourself to a spree at The Mall at Green Hills, or taking a trip to GreenHouse Bar to surround yourself by lush greens.
Frothy Monkey | Rosemary Honey Latte
- 12 South is full of wholesome activities that make walking around with a latte in hand that matches the mood a necessity. Your Tuesday afternoon likely includes a stop at 12 South Farmers Market for fresh produce and a bouquet of equally fresh flowers from Amelia’s Flower Truck.
Harding House Brewing Co. | Place of Origin
- Industrial, up-and-coming, and for sure a “Place of Origin” — all adjectives that describe the aesthetic of The Nations. A handful of Nashville’s craft breweries and taprooms occupy the neighborhood, matching the ambience of the architecturally-unique buildings that were once warehouses and mills.
