Cajun / Creole Restaurants in Nashville

Grab a few friends and chow down on some gumbo and po’ boys to get you in the Mardi Gras mood. Here are a few¬†of the top cajun spots in Music City.


Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar

Even though Bourbon¬†Street¬†Blues & Boogie¬†Bar is known to be more of a late-night spot, we recommend stopping by during the day. The live music is top-notch and the atmosphere is festive. If you’re looking for a more entertaining Mardi Gras, head to Printer’s Alley in Downtown Nashville and hit up Bourbon Street Blues.
