Seems impossible to rank things like this, but as far as my experiences have been with this (I’ve never stayed overnight, not even been to Open Mic Monday Events) this probably seems accurate, It is in the entertainment district. Probably fun to stay at traveling. This place is 4 blocks from the Ryman, 3 blocks from Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, 6-7 blocks from The Country Music Hall of Fame, 3 blocks from the Capital building, less than 1 block from Riverfront Park, 11 blocks from The Frist Center Art Gallery, 7 blocks from Jack White’s record store/venue/studio/2nd home (Third Man Records), 6 blocks from the The Bridgestone, across the Cumberland River from the Titans stadium, 21 or less blocks from Vanderbilt University and Belmont University and Lipscomb University and Peabody and Watkins College of Art and Design and Bethel University and Cumberland University and Fisk University and Tennessee State University, less than 8 blocks from the Printer’s Alley Blues & Jazz District, 10 blocks from Ernest Tubb’s Record Store, 12 blocks from the train station, 9 blocks from the bus station, 17 blocks from the Parthenon and Centennial Park, 5 blocks from the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, 5 blocks from Tennessee Performing Art Center, 9 blocks from the Library, half a block from over 100 dive bars whose names change about every other year and the decorations and the faces and the employees about every six months, and just over 21 blocks up hill from the best of the best dive bars in Nashville whose name has not changed in years and years.*(see note below) ~The Villager Tavern in Hillsboro Village, a bar so amazingly dive they DO NOT serve cocktails or liquor of any kind or have an Internet presence of any kind (that link is the best i could find), they have 3 beers on tap and maybe two fewer by the bottle, they serve one item on their menu: roastbeef on a hoagie with swiss and bbq chips in a bag. On your birthday you get a free dog bowl full of beer (around 6-1/2 - 7 beers). Many many many many people have drank out of the same dog bowl at The Villager. This writer being one. Multiple uses. One of the few places I’d spend more than one birthday at in this city, especially caught drinking in all seriousness (because by your third bowl on your third birthday in a row there the novelty has worn off, and the fact that you just really love beer is asserting itself) a grown human being drinking casually out of a dog bowl. And there are photographs. Oh yes. Photographs (mostly Polaroids) of birthday bowl-ers cover every square inch of every wall in the place. If it were to god forbid ever burn down, a significant collection of fine art would be lost. It would take a significantly strong base of regulars to overcome that. No different from burning a museum. What would be lost? Damn near everything. It’s priceless. The faces on the walls of grown humans drinking from dog bowls— reassuring anyone who sits down at the bar on any other day other than their birthday, that they are not alone. Not only are they not alone, they’re one amongst a huge crowd of faces (stacked five or six pictures think in places).~
And this is why Nashville Downtown Hostel is in the top 10 Hostels in the world. It’s 21 blocks from The Villager to the Downtown Hostel, and the hostel residents only make it out this far once a year, if that.
