Real Estate in Nashville: Downtown Demands
This was a note I found interesting about Nashville. Most people know that a lot of celebrities and music stars live in or around the Nashville area. Mostly country stars and blues, its true, but its evolving into more. In the downtown area, lofts are being offered for sale more often now. One sees lots of renovation work going on above the restaurant or store levels. This reminds me more of Europe, where is rare to see an area which is only business district or shops, without having flats or penthouses above them.
These renovated flats and penthouses in Nashville will be extremely in demand I think, because the downtown area is very nice, lots of things going on, lots of colourful restaurants and peoples always. At 231 Fifth Avenue, for example, buildings offering such for rather moderate prices I thought considering what you get (great location of course!) private access elevators, exclusive parking, security, penthouses with courtyards below, specially designed kitchens and bathrooms. Sounds like this will be wonderful. I really like Nashville although I don´t visit as much as one would like, living in Europe, but if I had the cash, would love to have a flat always there for when I´m visiting. Prices are 119,000 to 699,000 at the moment. Should go up, when more people start buying, and more people seeing and wanting. If you´ve looked at my other tips, you´ll see many fotos of the downtown areas, and its very nice.
despite all the 'tourist'...
despite all the 'tourist' stuff, nasheville is a living, breathing music city... lots of cool, unknown history has gone down there... willie nelson's house burnt down and all he ran in to save was his guitar and colombian...
Excellent pancakes of pretty much any variety you can dream up. Casual, homelike atmosphere & very popular with the locals. If you arrive and there is a line out the door down the street and around the corner... hurry up & get in it! The wait won't be very long & breakfast will definately be worth it.
If you're a country music fan, keep your eyes open. Vince Gill, Kenny Chesney, and more love to eat here. I had sweet potato pancakes with cinamon syrup - my mouth is watering just remembering them!!!
Nice Lunch Buffet
Restaurant has an elegant feel, yet the menu and prices are very down to earth. Lunch buffet items change weekly. We went as a group from my office - the service was friendly and fast, and the buffet remained stocked. It was a lovely lunch.
Full bar - live music nightly The sundried tomato & mozzerella fondue was WONDERFUL. I also liked the strawberries and chocolate - the berries were sweet and perfect, and the chocolate was just the right consistency: creamy, not clumpy.
Blue's Does Not Come any Better!
Broadway has some great little nightspots where you can just wander in as you are, no cover charge, and just sit down with a beer to listen to the talent at work! In our case, four of us tried Robert's Western World, one of the bars that I had been in last time I was in town and, once again, it did not disappoint. This time we sat right up front and listened to Dave Foley and his band as they went though their paces! Every once in a while, a patron or two would jump up from their table and do an impromptu dance for their own enjoyment, and our entertainment! We ended up buying a couple of the band's CDs to take home, but somehow the music is not quite the same without the surrounding atmosphere!!
