What is Downtown Nashville known for?

Nashville isn’t the birthplace of country music, but it’s where the genre has put down the deepest roots; and downtown might as well be center stage. Perhaps the most famous of the Southeast’s iconic downtowns pulses with the energy of a Merle Haggard melody. It’s the main attraction for Nashville’s nearly 15 million visitors per year, the heart and soul of the Music City. Downtown is more than just the bars off Broadway, however. The area between I-65 and the Cumberland River, terminating at Jefferson Street, includes eight distinct neighborhoods that each provide a different taste of downtown living. Between and within these residential areas is a seemingly endless collection of cultural hotspots, historical landmarks, and event spaces. Basically, whatever you’re looking for can probably be found in this signature southern city center.

Who is Downtown Nashville a good fit for?

Downtown Nashville offers a front-row seat to Music City’s famous action and entertainment. If you’re drawn to the everyday, energetic city vibes, then living downtown is perfect for you. Nashville’s vibrant city hub attracts many youthful professionals and singles. Living within the busy city center is also great for young couples without kids.

Things to do around Downtown

There are entire guidebooks written on this topic, so we’ll just hit the highlights. The rooftop bar scene on Broadway is an obvious draw, as spots like the Stage and Crazytown often offer three levels of simultaneous shows. A block off-Broadway, Bridgestone Arena is home to the NHL’s Predators, and the Tennessee Titans of the NFL play just across the Cumberland River in Nissan Stadium. Of course these double as concert venues, joining spots like the Ryman Auditorium, the CMA Theater, and the Ascend Amphitheater as unforgettable locations to catch a performance. Mingled with the fun is plenty of fascinating history. The Country Music Hall of Fame and the Johnny Cash Museum are must-sees, and right up the hill from Broadway are the beautiful Tennessee Statehouse and its gorgeous grounds. Of course, with all the intimate local spots for food, drink, and nightlife dotting areas like SoBro and Pietown, you might never feel the need to enter the downtown fray.

Most people within the area prefer renting over buying their homes. According to Niche, roughly 73% of the residents in Downtown Nashville are renters.

As the most developed neighborhood in Tennessee, Downtown Nashville offers a multitude of properties, many of which are surprisingly accessible to the average professional. Most of these are swanky highrise condos and flats built to maximize the area’s limited space. As long as you don’t require too much room, plenty of one-bedroom properties are available for as low as the mid-$300Ks. Adding a second or third bedroom usually shifts that price into the $500K-$999K range. Of course, these prices may vary based on the section of Downtown you’d like to call home. While you might find something particularly reasonable in some of the older apartment buildings a couple blocks off of Broadway, areas like The Gulch and Sobro (think snazzy new construction) often have a higher sales threshold. While downtown is centuries old, almost 70% of the residential construction has been built after 1999. That means lots of swanky new construction competing for residents, many of whom aren’t necessarily looking to turn their downtown home into an investment.

Renters are the rule in Downtown Nashville, as young professionals dip their toes in big city living. While the average downtown rent is almost $2,500 per month, it’s not unusual to find single-bedroom flats for under $1,300 per month—a price competitive with many other parts of Nashville. The only inconvenience is that Downtown Nashville’s living options are almost totally limited to condos and apartments; so if you crave a yard and extra space, you might want to try somewhere else in the city.

Share your opinion about Downtown with former, current and prospective residents.

“As a current resident of the downtown area”

As a current resident of the downtown area, this gives a great overview of what you can actually expect when living here. The location is very energetic and fun, but it is also loud. It is a great option for anyone who is new to Nashville or who just loves to be in the center of everything. I would not recommend Downtown for anyone with kids as it is not really kid/family-friendly.

“Obviously downtown is for the tourists.”

Obviously downtown is for the tourists. There’s a lot of loud bars here. If that’s your scene go there. This would also be the place to own a condo that is centrally located. I only go downtown for shows at the Ryman and hockey games at Bridgestone. Live on the Green is also a great event. I think tourism would be such a turn-off for living in this area, but if you like going out to bars then it’s your spot.
