Neighborhood Spotlight – East Nashville

(Photo by: Nashville Guru)

Next up on our neighborhood spotlight is East Nashville, the quirky and unique neighborhood just a few minutes outside of Downtown. Bustling at all hours of the day, you will almost always find something to do on this side of town. Whether you’re looking to get outside for a bike ride or want to try the latest and greatest new restaurant, East Nashville will probably have what you’re looking for.

Shelby Park

Shelby Park is a great spot for families to enjoy the outdoors as there are a few playgrounds and picnic areas, but also a Golf Course, baseball fields, and even the Shelby Bottoms Greenway. The greenway is great for bike riders, rollerbladers, walkers and runners and even allows dogs. 

Fatherland District

This area of town is close to historic 5 Points and features lots of local boutiques and a couple of great restaurants as well. Some of our favorite shops and restaurants that you’ll find over here are Gift Horse, Baxter Bailey & Company, Eastside Nails, and Maru Sushi & Grill.


Ah, yes, an East Nashville staple. Whether you’re headed there for a late-night bite to eat or nightcap, or even trying to get some brunch in on the weekend, Dino’s is a great place for all of it. Our favorite things to get here are the Damn Sandwich, animal-style fries, and the burger. You can thank us later.

Nashville Biscuit House

Biscuits and sausage gravy, you say? Nashville Biscuit House has it all. Located just in the heart of East Nashville, this place is almost always busy (especially on the weekends), so get there early if you’re looking for some breakfast or lunch.

Living Waters

Living Waters is a coffee shop by morning and a brewery by night. Our team spends a lot of time here meeting with clients and each other, so if you’ve been you may have seen one of us and not known it. We love the classic cold brew or a cortado, and their beer is great, too if you’re in the mood for it.

There is plenty more to do, see and eat in East Nashville, so if you’re wanting any more information or are looking at the different areas to buy here, let us know. We’d love to take you on a tour and grab you a coffee (probably at Living Waters).
