Where to eat, hang out and have a good time

The Forest Hills area itself is not particularly strong on nightlife, as it is a quieter suburban community without much bustling activity. However, this area is located only 5 minutes from Green Hills, one of Nashville’s premier areas for shopping and entertainment. Most locals either spend weekends in Green Hills or in downtown Nashville.

Although the best nighttime entertainment is located slightly outside of Forest Hills, within its borders is the local favorite Roze Pony, a relaxed, hip cafe with upscale, unique dishes. Besides this unique spot, most residents will head to the Green Hills area for their dining and entertainment experiences. Visit our guide to Green Hills for more information about this vibrant area.

“Forest Hills is between Brentwood and Belle Meade”

Forest Hills is between Brentwood and Belle Meade. It’s a great place if you are looking for a large house, big yard, and mature trees. I love that it is so close to Radnor Lake. Radnor is breathtaking in the fall and spring. It’s an expensive neighborhood. But it does offer upscale suburban living in Nashville. So that can’t be beaten.
