If you didn’t already know, here at Vinnie Louise, we call Nashville, TN home. And while we're SO excited to be growing and expanding to brand new areas, we’ll always have a HUGE heart for our hometown.
We love Nashville because it truly is Music City. You can always find great live music or discover your new favorite band on any night of the week. There are also so many AMAZING food options around town, and of course, there are lots of stellar shopping options too.
With new businesses opening up all the time, it can be hard to keep up with what’s new and right now. So we thought it would be fun to share the latest and greatest Nashville Newbies that we’re loving or can’t wait to try.

This delicious brunch spot is actually right up the road from our upcoming store location in Franklin, TN! The owners of Ruby Sunshine also run the Ruby Slipper Cafe in New Orleans, and now they're bringing all the amazing and delicious charm of the Big Easy to Music City. Try their fantastic eggs benedict and don’t forget to drink a Ruby Mimosa (or 2), possibly the most delicious mimosa you'll ever have. For all our Nashville folks, they’ll also be opening a location in Hillsboro Village later this year. BRUNCH WIN!

Cafe Intermezzo is hardly new on the Nashville scene, but it's possibly one of Downtown’s best-kept secrets. Forget Cheesecake Factory. This is the perfect spot for intimate date nights OR a fun get together with your girls. Cafe Intermezzo features a super extensive espresso and wine menu, along with every other type of coffee or hot chocolate drink your heart could imagine. And don’t even get us started on the incredible desserts. We haven’t tried a meal there yet, but they do have yummy looking all day food menus as well.

If you’re looking for a night out option that is truly like no other, this is it. The brand new Downtown Sporting Club includes everything from dinner and drinks, to axe throwing, a coffee shop, a rooftop hang and hotel rooms (just in case you're too sleepy to head home). We're loving the idea of this place and can't wait to try it out. It seems like the perfect location to round up your whole crew and do a little something that everyone will love!
5. The Catio

And now for something entirely different! Last but definitely not least, we're popping over to the East Side for a fun, memorable time at The Catio. In case you didn't know, just a few short miles from our East Nashville shop, there is an adorable spot that is equal parts coffee shop/bakery and cat adoption center. Grab a delicious treat, then hang out with some new furry friends in the cat room! The photo opportunities are endless, and you just might end up taking a new friend home.
