Where to eat, hang out and have a good time

The Nations’ breweries and restaurants are one of the biggest draws for the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood is named after a beloved restaurant. The Nations Bar and Grill is a local favorite, offering American classics with a twist. This friendly, casual bar and grill makes the perfect hang out or meet up for happy hour any day of the week.

This neighborhood is also proud to be the home of Fat Bottom Brewing Company. You will find residents enjoying freshly brewed beers in their causal and inviting taproom throughout the week. Most residents enjoy the fresh air on the quick walk to Fat Bottom’s sophisticated and intimate taproom.

You will also find the smaller, but equally unique and beloved brewery, Harding House Brewing Company across from the Nations Bar and Grill. It is no wonder locals love this craft brewery. The Harding House’s philosophy of using local ingredients and welcoming all perfectly captures the neighborhood’s attitude and feel.

The other neighborhood eateries reflect a casual atmosphere, but the same locally-owned vibe that The Nations’ residents appreciate. Some of their favorites include The Frothy Monkey, Oscar’s Taco Shop, and 51 North Taproom.

Many Nations residents bypass downtown and choose to stay closer, frequenting the many restaurants and bars on Charlotte Avenue for a bit more variety.

I moved to the Nations in May 2020 and cannot say enough good things! As a freelancer, I love that there are 5 cafes all within walking distance. 51st Ave is packed with awesome restaurants and bars. I also like that you're close to downtown and local grocery stores (Turnip Truck, Kroger, Aldi).
