Locals Guide: Nashville, Tennessee


Music. Food. Culture. Nashville—now home to our newest Vuori location—has got it all. This city combines an unrivaled music legacy with some of the world’s most exciting emerging artists, plus innovative chefs who are changing the game and a visual arts scene in its own right. Before you get overwhelmed with all the things to see and do in Nashville we’ve gathered the must-see spots for anyone who’s visiting Music City. Whether you’re looking for rock ’n’ roll greatness, the fitness scene, or just want to soak in the vibes (hello, Grand Ole Opry)—read on for some favorite spots highlighted by locals who are helping to shape this exciting southern scene.

Around Town
Martin's BBQ

Choosing a barbeque spot to recommend in Nashville is no simple thing. Discourse about the merits of one well-loved shop over another can get as heated as the sauce, with locals holding fiercely to their favorites. But one name that came up again and again? Martin’s. With a crowd-friendly location and some seriously swoon-worthy slabs, be sure to invite friends.

Mornings? You can always count on Hearts for a hopping brunch scene—and some seriously inventive coffee and cocktails (bright red heartbeet latte, anyone?). The menu is Aussie-inspired. The vibes are out of this world.

Dose Coffee

Nashville’s first multi-roaster coffee shop, Dose is known for hosting various roasters from around the country. The scene is similarly adventurous, offering brewing classes, chocolate tastings and tea pairings. With several locations around town, it’s a great place to get into the culture of Nashville.

Full Ride Cycling

The cycling studio that grew—quickly—from word-of-mouth. Founder Kenzie Todd hosted Full Ride Cycling classes at various locations all over the city (she even led classes out of a shipping container once) before landing in her beautiful new location in 12 South, one of Nashville’s most coveted neighborhoods. FRC seeks to inspire connection and community. Plus, you’ll work up a good sweat.

Where to Explore
Shelby Bottoms

Right along the Cumberland River in East Nashville is Shelby Bottoms, nearly 1,300 acres of bluffs and rolling hills that simply demand to be explored. The nature preserve is a great spot for a woodsy hike within minutes of downtown. With open fields, wetlands and streams, it’s a local favorite for running and walking.
