We often write about where to live in Nashville – it’s an easy topic because each area is unique and they all have their own amenities.
East Nashville is an area east of downtown Nashville bound by the Cumberland River, I-24/65, and Briley Parkway. The area is mostly residential and mixed-use areas with businesses lining the main boulevards. The main thoroughfare is Gallatin Avenue and Ellington Parkway with smaller arteries interconnecting the neighborhoods.
East Nashville is an area of creative and artistic flair. It has a trendy progressive atmosphere and after ten plus years of a slow and steady rise, the neighborhood has managed to keep its eclectic, artsy vibe while welcoming a diverse mix of newcomers. There are many coffee shops and art galleries interwoven within the neighborhoods making it a bikers’ or walkers’ paradise. The culinary scene is home to some of the most-talked about restaurants, breweries, and bars. In fact, The New York Times featured some of the best from the food scene in this article.
Residents of East Nashville enjoy the small-town feel inside our growing metro area. Beautiful historic homes combined with tree-lined streets and sidewalks blend with new developments of condominiums and lofts. The front porch culture has developed a tight-knit and proud community of residents that lend their time and talents to preserving the authentic character of East Nashville.

East Nashville: Great eats, vintage finds
East Nashville is a breath of fresh alternative air to the crowds of downtown and upscale shopping district Green Hills. East Nashville is where urban pioneers are headed now, and its abundance of quirky shops and excellent restaurants, along with a few nightlife venues, make it well worth investigating.
The 5 Points District – Woodland St. at N 11th St. – is ‘vintage central.’ Alegria, Moss, Hello Boys, and Goodbuy Girls (major cowboy boots alert!) will have you making tough decisions or blowing through wads of cash. If Music City has you dreaming up your own stage name, pop in to Fanny’s House of Music for vintage instruments and dressing room garb.
Foodies eat dessert first at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, where modern décor is as cool as the cones. Silly Goose (creative sandwiches), Wild Cow (vegetarian), Mas Tacos Por Favor and The Eastland Café are all worth consideration. Marché Artisan Foods and Lockeland Table (a James Beard Foundation nominee) are two of the reasons The New York Times says Nashville is giving Atlanta a run for ‘food capital of the south.’ Head upstairs at Marché to network at community tables.
Live music venues channel local talent, and East Nashville doesn’t disappoint. The 5 Spot keeps it going all week long, while 3 Crow Bar also offers darts, TV, trivia and a beer garden.

The Nashville food scene is ever-changing and we always have new restaurants that become the talk of the town in an instant – Lockeland Table in East Nashville is one of them.
Lockeland Table opened in August 2012 and has been the talk of the town ever since. I finally tried it last week with a friend visiting Nashville from Birmingham and we both loved it.
My first recommendation? Make a reservation. This restaurant is very quaint (aka small) so I can’t imagine the wait without reservations. When I called, they asked if we were willing to sit at the pizza bar as that is all that remained available for the evening. We said yes and had a great time watching them prepare many pizzas and other small dishes in the wood-burning oven.
Everything on the menu sounded great and we really had a hard time making a decision on what to order. We asked the waitress for her recommendations and she confirmed that the best-sellers included all of the dishes we were debating. 🙂 In the end, we ordered the baked oyster appetizer (baked in the wood oven), then split a salad and two different types of pizza: The Pig and the Special.
Both pizzas were so good that we knew instantly there would not be any leftovers… The Pig featured sausage, pepperoni, pancetta, and ham – it was a meat lover’s delight. The Special pizza featured sausage and diced peaches and was absolutely amazing!
We enjoyed wine with our pizzas but many friends have recommended the cocktails from the bar at Lockeland Table. Another friend swears that their chocolate pot de creme is a magnificent dessert, but after polishing off both pizzas we were too full to even try it.
I would recommend Lockeland Table to anyone! It could be perfect for a date night, their large table with unique seats next to the bar could host a fun crowd, and the cozy/casual feel of the restaurant is warm and inviting!
