Connections - Fall 2016 - 28

> destination spotlight Nashville's Neighborhoods THIS REBORN SOUTHERN scene ranges from rebel to ritzy all in the same block. Explore these avenues and you're sure to discover an intimacy found nowhere else. Here's a taste of just a few of Nashville's hottest neighborhoods. DOWNTOWN Downtown Nashville is the hub of the entertainment that defines Music City. Within mere city blocks, visitors can experience world-class art at the Frist Center for Visual Arts, catch a great Broadway play at the amazing Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC), and see world-class concerts and events at the Bridgestone Arena. Within walking distance is the legendary Ryman Auditorium regarded as the "Mother Church of Country Music." The Ryman is a National Historic Landmark renowned for its exceptional acoustics that has hosted musicians from Chris Isaak and James Brown to Patsy Cline and John Legend, as well as current and rising stars of all musical genres. 28 > Fall 2016 Wash it all down while enjoying some of the world's greatest live music-offered free 24/7/365-at one of the city's many honky-tonks that line famous Broadway, including Tootsie's, Robert's Western World, The Stage, and Layla's Bluegrass Inn. If you're looking for authentic Southern comfort food while taking it all in, check out Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant, which offers a side of great live music in the evenings. GERMANTOWN One of Nashville's historic neighborhoods is bringing people closer to town to live and play. Germantown, so named because of the influx of German immigrants in the mid-19th century, was Nashville's first suburb. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979, the neighborhood is now being restored to its original grandeur. The year-round Nashville Farmers' Market in Germantown is divided into three distinct areas. The North and South Farm Sheds house up to 100 farmers and artisans. Any day of the week, you can get the freshest fruits and vegetables from local farmers. The Market House is home to 16 restaurants and shops serving cuisine representing countries from all over the world. The Craft & Flea Shed is open Friday-Sunday with more than 50 merchants selling clothes, jewelry and home goods. The Farmers' Market also hosts special events throughout the year like cooking demos and classes, supper clubs, and dance parties. As far as dining in Germantown, Silo features a creative, farm-to-fork menu with a focus on the bounty of regional farmers, ranchers, dairymen, and producers. Five-time James Beard Award semi-finalist Daniel Lindley has opened 5th & Taylor, a 250-seat restaurant offering up a "regional and seasonally focused American menu," in the Warehouse at Taylor Place development.
