Nashville, Tennessee has garnered the nickname Nash-Vegas over the years thanks to all of the Las Vegas-level of wild and often drunken debauchery found on Broadway, sometimes referred to as the Honky Tonk Highway.

Broadway is a Popular Nashville Destination

Broadway is a popular destination for birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and just about any other reason to drink, dance, and party. That area has a massive appeal and on just about any night of the week you can find music blaring from a DJ, a live band, or even karaoke from one of the bars. There are tons of shops, boutiques, and souvenir shops to boot too. But what if drinking and partying like that isn't your scene?

Bright Lights, Loud Music, and Fast Pours Aren't for Everyone

I get it. Before I took my last drink, I had a few experiences on that street and they were... fun... for that time in my life and the person that I was back then. The hangovers weren't as much fun though. I am ten years sober now and that kind of nightlife just isn't my style. I do still enjoy live music, and I love karaoke with friends, but not in that type of environment. I'm a lot more low-key now.
