The Nations is one of Nashville’s oldest neighborhoods near Sylvan Park. It has received tremendous interest by developers, restauranteurs, and start-ups over the last few years. While the area used to be mostly industrial and residential, new businesses like The Mill Boutique and 51st Kitchen & Bar are bringing more people to the area on a regular basis for shopping and dining. Home developers are also building new homes in the area, which is attractive to homebuyers looking for more modern, affordable options near the city.
Residents can enjoy walking and recreation in the two neighborhood parks, England Park and West Park, or get a game of bocce ball in at Coco’s Italian Market. Live bands are playing at The Stone Fox, and cold beer is waiting at Betty’s.
Much like other areas of Nashville, The Nations is going to undergo extreme revitalization over the next few years. Some popular businesses are moving their operations to The Nations, including Fat Bottom Brewery and Turtle Anarchy Brewing Company. There have also been numerous announcements regarding new mixed-use developments and large land purchases, which is a promising sign of continual growth for the neighborhood.
