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.
