Travel Adventures: Pinewood Social in Nashville

Pinewood Social in Nashville

Earlier this spring I had the great opportunity to visit Nashville on The Silver Lining book tour. I hadn’t been there in yeaaaars. It has changed so much!  I cannot say enough about the city. Between the music, food and people…my oh my!  One extra special place is a must-visit restaurant by the name of Pinewood Social.

It was developed by local restaurateurs Max and Benjamin Goldberg (the brothers behind the wildly popular dinner venue Catbird Seat), who conceived it as an all-day hangout with first-rate cuisine. As we walked in, it felt part coffee shop (with long communal tables), part restaurant, super-cool part bar/club…and this was BEFORE we even got to the bowling alley (yes, BOWLING ALLEY!) at the rear of the venue.

“This is an entrepreneurial city,” Max says. “People need a place where they can work and have meetings.” And for a break, patrons can hit the bocce court, get a drink at the 1970s Airstream trailer bar, or take a dip in the pool. Designed by Nashville-based Landy Gardner Interiors and the New York firm Reunion, the expansive space—a former trolley barn with soaring ceilings and exposed-brick walls—also has a coffee stand along with the restaurant.
