Germantown is one of the oldest areas in Nashville with an awesome, eclectic vibe. Notable aspects of Germantown include brick sidewalks, ample street parking, and more greenery than your typical city neighborhood. The annual Nashville Oktoberfest is also a major attraction, when the entire city shows up for tours of the historic churches, German traditions, and live music.
Germantown offers several different types of living options such as individual houses, townhouses, duplexes and low-rise apartments. Germantown is a slightly cheaper area to live compared to others, though the area has seen a boom lately. Germantown has over 15 restaurants, including local gems like City House, Rolf and Daughters, 5th and Taylor, and Butchertown Hall. The night scene in Germantown is mild with most of the restaurants closing between 10:00pm and midnight.
Shopping has become more prevalent including cute boutiques like Pieces, Violet Flower Boutique, Wilder and soon-to-open Abednego. Locals pick up last-minute meals at Lazzaroli Pasta or Little Fish Company. People who live in Germantown love being near the Nashville Farmers Market, which is just outside of Germantown.
Since the neighborhood is very walkable, Germantown is great for active people that want to walk to nearby shops, restaurants or gyms. There are now two yoga studios in Germantown, Steadfast & True Yoga and Shakti Power Yoga, as well as a 24-hour access gym, ProVita. Also, it’s proximity to Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park makes it very desirable.
