Visitor’s guide to enjoying the NFL Draft in Nashville

Advice from a Nashville native on where to find good food, what to do, and what to avoid while you’re in town for the draft.

The 2019 NFL Draft is less than three weeks away and preparation for the event has officially started in Nashville. If you’re finalizing your travel and plans and beginning to look for some information on things to do while you’re here, you’ve come to the right spot.

Looking for something to do during the day on Thursday leading up to the first round? Come hang out with us at a live podcast event and MCM meetup at Corner Pub Downtown (151 5th Ave N). We will be live broadcasting from 2:00-5:00 that afternoon and then hanging out to watch the picks afterwards. You can find all the information you need to know about that event here.

Just about two and a half miles south of the Gulch on 8th Avenue (you’ll probably want to get a ride) are a couple other fun spots that I’d recommend if you want to get outside the madness of downtown. Sinema is an old movie theater that was converted into an upscale restaurant. They still run old movies on the wall while you eat and have a cozy upstairs cocktail lounge as well. Next door is The Sutler which is really three bars in one. They have a dive-y billiards room, a downstairs cocktail lounge, and a main level that features live music and surprisingly excellent southern pub food. Across the street from both of those is M.L.Rose (a craft beer and burger bar). Those are the only things to do in this specific area though, so if you want to check out Sinema, The Sutler, or M.L.Rose, you really need to make a dedicated trip.
