Nashville Travel Guide - 2021

See our top spots for your next trip to Music City!

Another influencer trip is in the books and for our last trip of 2021, we headed to Nashville, Tennessee! After a short flight from Dallas to Nashville, the Brand Team touched down in Music City for a week of honky tonkin' with some of our favorite BuddyLove Blogger Babes. Keep reading for the scoop on our week of glitz, glam and music!

We checked into the most fabulous hotel in Nashville, The Graduate! This Dolly Parton inspired hotel was the ultimate place for us to be 'workin' 9 to 5' for the week. The Graduate is filled from top to bottom with glitter, endless stylish details and too many photo-ops to count!


After all of our influencers arrived and got settled into their rooms, we loaded up and headed out for our first night in Nashville! Happy hour at L27 Rooftop Bar and a private dinner at Bourbon Steak Nashville were up next on the itinerary.

Our first happy hour of the trip took place 27 floors high above Downtown Nashville, at L27 Rooftop Bar in the Westin Hotel! Complete with a 90's fashion inspired Halloween pop-up, L27 was the perfect, intimate spot to kick off our BuddyLovesNashville festivities! Boasting swanky vibes, killer views, and tasteful cocktails, this is the spot for day or night hangs.

Bourbon Steak Nashville set the bar HIGH for our first dinner. Located atop the JW Marriott, our private dinner featured 360-degree views of Nashville, impeccable cocktails and wine, and possibly one of our favorite menus yet.

We got the night going with a fresh shellfish tower, trio of duck-fat fries, ceaser + wedge salads and heavy pours of wine! Angus filet mignon and rosemary-garlic brick chicken were up next on the menu, followed by Bourbon Steak's signature s'mores + warm sugar beignets for dessert! We will be drooling over this experience until further notice 😉


We kicked off day 2 with the launch of our Holiday Pajama collection, and shot looks in our new comfies around the hotel! Snag your own pair of jammies HERE!


After spending the morning lounging in our pajamas, we headed to bartaco for a nautical, latin cuisine filled brunch! We fueled up on chips + guac, endless tacos and plenty of margaritas!


Post-brunch was spent exploring 12South and all the fun murals, pumpkin patches and shopping we could ask for! If you're ever in Nashville, the 12South district of town is the place to be for Instagrammable spots and hidden gems.

L.A. Jackson

Our second evening started with happy hour on another rooftop, at L.A. Jackson Rooftop Bar! We sipped cocktails and snacked on GLITTER CHICKEN. Yes, you read that right. Obviously, we can't get enough glitter, but add it to our chicken tenders and you've made a group of girls fall in love!

To celebrate our latest jewelry launch in collaboration with Lisi Lerch, the Lisi team + Lisi herself hosted our rowdy crew at Sixty Vines Nashville! Complete with a disco cowgirl tablescape + goodies, personalized menu and LOTS of dancing, we were blown away by the love and hospitality Lisi and her team offered us!

You can shop the BuddyLove xx Lisi Lerch Collection HERE!


After boot scootin' the night away, we enjoyed a slow morning around the hotel before hopping on our shuttle bus for a day of brunch, live music in Downtown Nashville, and an epic dinner party to come.

Hampton Social

Brunch was calling at The Hampton Social, which was just what we needed to re-fuel and gear up for our last day in Nashville! Between the mac and cheese, lobster rolls and pizza, our favorite items on the menu included the fish bowls. You MUST try their I Glitteraly Can't fish bowl next time you're here. Glitter in our cocktails?! SWOON 🤩✨

Downtown Nashville

Our afternoon was spent wandering around downtown Nashville, listening to live music, dancing the day away and of course, more cocktails! The possibilities are truly endless on Broadway.

White Limozeen

For our last happy hour of the trip, we headed to the rooftop of our hotel, White Limozeen. We sipped cocktails and were fully ready for our disco cowgirl themed dinner ahead! P.S. You'll need a reservation here to sit and enjoy your drinks, though the bar has open seating, it fills up FAST!

Commons Club

Let's just say, we understood the Disco Cowgirl assignment! Our farewell dinner was spent at Commons Club, complete with sequin cowgirl hats, a personalized menu filled with lots of goodness, and a disco cowgirl birthday cake to celebrate some of our Blogger Babes Birthdays!


We danced our last night away before having to say goodbye and head home. The BuddyLoves Nashville trip was filled with endless good food + drinks, incredible hospitality from all of our sponsors, lots of laughs, dancing and of course, sequins.

Thank you to our incredible influencers who came out and rallied with us, all while going above and beyond to support the BuddyLove brand. Nashville, you have our hearts! 💕
