Finding the right neighborhood in Nashville is only difficult because there are so many great choices. Some of the best areas in the Music City cater strictly to families or to singles, but many of the neighborhoods feature a variety of residents. Here's a breakdown of some of the top areas throughout the city.
5 Points in East Nashville

Many of the well-known hole-in-the-wall bars are found here including Corner Bar, Gold Rush and Aladdin's Hookah Bar.
