Hot summer days call for cool pools. Outside of Metro Parks’ public pools, it can be hard to find a publicly accessible pool (especially with cocktails). Look no further. Here are the top pools you can enjoy this summer in Nashville. Whether it’s a single-day pool party or an overnight staycation, consider these spots for your next water day in Music City.

Relax poolside at Pinewood Social, one of Nashville’s most popular food and drink destinations. Their outdoor dipping pools and poolside service can be enjoyed Thursday through Sunday from 10:00am to 6:00pm (weather permitting). The pools are first-come, first-served, so get there early to secure your spot! Towels are available for rent, and sunscreen and sunglasses are available for purchase. Showers are onsite for a pre- or post-pool rinse, too. The pool area is restricted to guests 21 or over.
SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland
While the upscale resort water attraction at Gaylord Opryland is primarily restricted to hotel guests, there is one other way to get access to SoundWaves: Party rooms. If you book a private party room for six or more guests, you can receive a SoundWaves day pass for each guest. Rental rates are $40-$55 per person and also include pizzas, cake, non-alcoholic beverages, and more. Locals get discounts on overnight stays, too, if you want to make a staycation out of it!
Governor’s Pool at White Limozeen
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sunshine at Governor’s Pool at White Limozeen atop the Graduate Nashville hotel. The rooftop pool features four daybeds, three bench seats, four chairs, and oversized umbrellas. The pool is an amenity of White Limozeen, therefore, it is open to the public! All of White Limozeen’s menus are available to order from while lounging by the pool. Pricing is $40 per person Monday through Wednesday and $50 per person Thursday through Sunday. Reservations are for three-hour time slots beginning at 9:00am, 12:30pm, and 4:00pm daily. Towel service is included. Reservations are required and can be made on Resy.
The Dive Motel
The Dive Motel offers daily Swim Club pool passes to their swimming pool (heated in the winter), hot tub, and private pool deck. The passes are $15 Monday through Friday, and $25 on Saturday and Sunday. The pool is open from noon until sundown. Bring a towel and sunscreen!
While Kenect Nashville is known for its co-working environment and apartment community, they also have a nice outdoor pool! The All Access Day Pass ($40) and Hourly Pass ($5 per hour) include access to the pool, community workspace, gym, and amenities. Do a little work, exercise, and then relax by the pool.
Virgin Hotels Nashville
Virgin Hotels Nashville offers a Mid-Week Dip Monday through Thursday, which includes a daybed, a dedicated server, and two wristbands for pool access. The reservation is for three hours and costs $100 plus a $100 food and beverage minimum (plus tax and gratuity). Reservations are available starting at 11:00am and 2:00pm.
