The Patterson House in Nashville is a local favorite for a drink on the town. Your area tourists are going to opt for obvious Broadway honky-tonk choices while locals are too busy enjoying the incredible hidden gems around town. Patterson House is one of those hidden gems located on Division Street. It’s a speakeasy hangout with a Gatsby-and-Governor sophistication and savvy bartenders.

You can sit at one of the 30 bar stools and chat with the bartenders dressed in Capone-era style or sip on a cocktail at one of the elegant tables under the vintage chandeliers. If you want to check out a local favorite, head over to 1711 Division Street for a night at The Patterson House.

What to expect

The Patterson House features hand-crafted cocktails and small appetizers. The speakeasy experience is apparent throughout the restaurant with the custom-made drinks to the dark lighting. Snack on light bar food like the grilled cheese sandwich, the mini burgers or the ham burrata.

Order a few dishes to share for dinner priced at around $8 a dish. Cocktails are priced around $13 and the bartenders take the time to prepare their homemade recipes. You’ll feel that you’ve entered the prohibition era in this speakeasy style bar.


Your service will be fantastic along with the drinks. They use fresh ingredients to create each cocktail and are ready to enjoy some conversation with their guests. They are talented mixologists that pull fresh ingredients from the fruit rinds of lemons to the various bitters and extracts. Try an “Old Fashioned” consisting of Bombay Dry Gin, Lime, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, Angostura Bitters and Orange Bitters. Another local favorite is the Champagne Cocktail, Daiquiris and Mai Tai’s.

From the feel of the bar to the quality of drinks, you really have to experience this one of a kind experience in the area. Check it out seven days a week from 5pm-3am.
