Urban Cowboy Public House

Cocktail Bar in East Nashville

Set behind Nashville's hottest B&B (also bearing the Urban Cowboy name), this 2016 newcomer is hotter than the 16ft tall double-sided outdoor fireplace and adjacent fire pit, which serve as the centerpiece of an open-air patio that seduces East Nashville's bold and beautiful. The inside lounge, separated by double garage doors, is a stunner as well, rich in hardwoods and Southwestern-themed, Pendleton-blanketed banquettes.

The classic-leaning cocktail menu is tiny – just eight when we came through – but exquisitely executed.
