Nashville Local’s Guide: 8th Avenue South

I’ve been living off of 8th Street for over a year now and I love it! I normally stay in my neighborhood for most things; so I’ve created a guide of what I like to do over here! I’ve included the 8th Avenue/ Wedgewood Houston area.

Where to Eat

Girls gotta eat right?

  • M. L. Rose: All around great place. Average prices, huge beer selection and fun atmosphere. The one on 8th avenue has a really cool beer garden in the back! Their sweet potato fries are amazing!
  • The Sutler/ Rambler/ Melrose Billiard Parlor: You can have three completely different experiences all in one place! They have a swanky cocktail bar, music inspired restaurant/bar and underground game bar. The Sutler has the BEST brunch, the Rambler has a great drink special on Wednesdays & Melrose has free popcorn. You’re welcome!!
  • Cilantro: One of my favorite restaurants!! Amazing Mexican food, waiters are nice and great margaritas.
  • The Smiling Elephant: Great Thai food and super cool atmosphere.
  • Sinema: It’s a old movie theater that’s been made into a restaurant. SO COOL. Can be a bit pricer but have a good happy hour and if you’re looking to grub at brunch they have a pretty amazing buffet. Tip: use the downstairs bathroom, super good selfie spot.
  • Love, Peace & Pho: Serving up delicious Vietnamese food! Try the Rare beef!
  • Fat Mo’s: Looks like a little shack, but skip McDonalds and get Fat Moe’s spicy fries. You’ll thank me later.

Where To Go Grab A DrinkT

  • Bastion: I’ve been here quite a few times, it’s amazing. They have a restaurant but the bar area is a great place to grab a drink! Their “bucks” drink is so tasty, nachos are amazing & have $3 PBR + a super fun “air” hockey game.
  • The Pink Flamingo: Atmosphere is the main part of this place. It’s SO pretty! When it’s warmer the patio is nice & on the weekends they have a disco dance party with old school jams.
  • Diskin Cider: Not a huge beer fan? Try a cider! They have a full in-house cider production and cool bar area with games! Great place to chill on a pretty day!
  • The Sutler/ Rambler/ Melrose Billiard Parlor: Again good places to eat and drink.

Where to Get Coffee

I need coffee to basically function everyday… here are the best places

Where to get Sweets

  • Baked on 8th: Simply amazing! Good and pretty desserts! Cute place to take pictures too.


After you eat, drink and caffeinate yourself you need something to do.

  • Wedgewood-Houston Monthly Art Crawl: It’s the first Saturday of the month starting at 6 PM. Who doesn’t like art & free wine? I like it better than the art crawl downtown, FYI.
  • Go thrift shopping! We have some great thrift stores really close by! Eighth Avenue Antique Mall, Pre To Post Modern, Classic Modern, GoodWill is close & the flea market!
  • The Basement: Great place to see live music! Super small and cool venue.
  • Zanies: Spend the night laughing your booty off!

    Howdy, I do believe your blog could be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks
    fine however when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, great website!
