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 several years. While the area used to be mostly industrial and residential, businesses like The Hop Yard at Fat Bottom Brewing, Nicky’s Coal Fired, Frothy Monkey, ABLE, and 51 North Taproom are making the area a great place to be for shopping and dining. Home developers continue 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. Beer lovers will appreciate having Fat Bottom Brewing Company nearby, too.
Much like other areas of Nashville, The Nations is going to undergo extreme revitalization over the next few years. There have been numerous announcements regarding new mixed-use developments and large land purchases, which is a promising sign of continual growth for the neighborhood.
