Edible Farm Dinner
The Edible Farm Dinner is a unique and gorgeous dining experience that only happens a few times per year. Edible showcases local farms and other local vendors at these amazing events. It is the ultimate local farm-to-table meal. These dinners are normally held on a farm where some of the produce is grown.
About Edible Farm Dinners: “Celebrating the seasons, Edible Nashville farm to table dinners bring together local chefs, farmers, artisans, brewers, distillers, musicians and the community for one magical night under the stars in a creek.”
Each dinner starts with multiple delicious appetizers, live music, local cocktails, and other beverages, and locally brewed coffee. The main dinner itself is sit-down at a long table and consists of five courses.
Tickets for the upcoming dinner are still available! You can find out more information or purchase them here.
Skull’s Rainbow Room Burlesque Show
If you’re looking for something both bougie and spicy for your date night, consider going to the Skull Rainbow Room’s for dinner and then attending their burlesque show afterward!
Their menu reads: “Skull’s Rainbow Room is a casual yet elegant tribute to David “Skull” Schulman and the former fine dining establishments of Nashville’s Historic Printers Alley.” There have been dozens of historic singers and entertainers to perform on their stage! The stage is still the original checkerboard stage that was in David Schulman’s Rainbow Room.
Their burlesque shows start at 9:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. If you make reservations to eat after 9:00 pm those days you do not have to pay to cover the fee. Otherwise, the entrance fee is $20.
House of Cards
Located below the Jonny Cash museum, House of Cards is one of the most unique dining experiences in Nashville. There is a very strict no photo policy as well as a strict dress code. You have to follow the rules to be allowed in!
To enter, you go through a secret tunnel and are greeted with an “indescribable” area: “From the beautiful handcrafted bar to the multimillion-dollar collection of art, European antiques, and magic-related artifacts, the interior is the result of four years of design, planning, and artisanship resulting in a one of a kind ambiance not found anywhere else in the world (HOC Nashville).”
Their menu includes classic American cuisine and delicious and unique hand-crafted cocktails. They also feature magicians on the floor of the dining area, as well as a magic show in the Carter the Great showroom.
