Few cities in the South offer as many things to do and sights to see as Nashville. The events here reflect the culture of the South in some truly unique and fun ways. As a nexus for great music and food, the city is a thriving example of the quintessential Tennessee experience. In this city, there’s always something happening, and the constant presence of cranes on the horizon are a testament to Nashville’s momentum and growth.
Nothing can slow Nashville down and, as such, you’ll find some amazing hangouts and venues anywhere you look. And, best of all, these locations are steeped in visual appeal. You’d have to struggle hard to take a bad picture in any of the places featured on this list, so get ready to spice up your Instagram feed with the most Instagrammable places in Nashville.
1. Go minimalist and chic at White Avenue Studio
White Avenue Studio combines an event space and a photo studio, both of which you can book for photo projects. The photo studio is fully equipped, so you’ll have everything you need to take plenty of Instagram-worthy portraits or product shots.
On the events side, White Avenue has a large venue appropriate for weddings, parties, or anything that requires a beautiful space. It’s a brightly lit space with integrated sound — you’ll find both the inside and outdoor areas look great in images.
2. Live your best life at the picture-perfect 506 Lofts
Managed by Anchor Rentals, 506 Lofts is a suite of vacation rental lofts. Each loft has its own distinct personality, but they’re all painstakingly styled. The walls tend towards raw and industrial, often with a mural thrown in for good measure.
To round off the decor, each space is stocked with mid-century modern furniture, and all of them get loads of natural light. It’s virtually impossible to take a bad photo in these rooms. Any one of these spaces could probably be listed among the most Instagrammable places in Nashville, but 506 Lofts has a bunch of them all in one place.
3. Class up your Insta feed in the Bell Tower
The Bell Tower is one of Nashville’s oldest churches, dating back to 1874. But don’t let the age of the building fool you — the structure has been modernized, and its old styling has merged with new amenities. Filled with natural light — thanks to its large windows — and exposed wooden beams, the Bell Tower looks amazing in any photograph.
The venue is often used for weddings and corporate events, so if you’re lucky enough to attend an event there — or host one yourself — you can cash in on the highly ‘Grammable surroundings.
4. Stoke your followers’ FOMO at the Bridge Building
You’ll find the Bridge Building in downtown Nashville in a scenic riverfront location. This space has it all: wide open spaces with tons of windows and natural light, a covered outdoor area, and a rooftop patio with a great view.
Developers saved the historic Bridge Building from demolition in the 1990s. Now they’ve modernized and restored it to be a great space for large events, weddings, and corporate gatherings. Best of all, you won’t be able to take a bad photo anywhere in the building.
5. Snap selfies in any of Stay Local Nashville’s super-stylish rentals
Stay Local Nashville manages a bunch of different properties, though “Paradise on Plateau” is the one above. It’s not the only gorgeous space they’ve got, though. Looking for a beautiful ranch house that’s photoshoot-ready? They’ve got it. Need a bathroom large enough to shoot in with a clawfoot tub? Stay Local has you covered.
With over 90 properties in Nashville, Stay Local has whatever space you need for working with models, product shoots, or video work — their properties look great on camera and will make your work really pop.
6. Take in the view and enjoy a few drinks at L.A. Jackson
L.A. Jackson is one of the best bar and restaurants in Nashville. With a gorgeous indoor area and a rooftop bar with enviable views, you’ll be making great photos for Instagram the instant you sit down. During the day, the space is filled with light, thanks to its many floor-to-ceiling windows — this also gets you superb views of the city.
Tasteful furniture is comfortable to lounge on while you sip on an Instagram-worthy cocktail with friends or enjoy some great-tasting — and great-looking — appetizers. During peak hours, there’s generally a wait to get in, but it’s well worth it. This is easily one of the most Instagrammable places in Nashville, so don’t miss it.
7. Absorb the local flavor at Acme Feed and Seed
Another excellent bar and historic building well worth a visit is Acme Feed and Seed. Located in a building from 1890, this phenomenal space has tons of character that will make your photographs stand out. The structure comprises four stories and three different bars, each with its own unique style, so you’ll definitely find a spot that fits your vibe.
Weekly live performances on the first floor makes this a great stop for anyone looking to enjoy Nashville’s music scene. Enjoy a beer and live band, or go upstairs for a classy cocktail — the rooftop offers breathtaking views of Nashville as well. It’s easy to get a dozen amazing shots here, so you can be #latergramming for days.
8. Grab great shots and food at Henley Nashville
Finally, Henley Nashville is another highly photogenic bar on the restaurant circuit. Deeply rooted in Southern cooking, as well as French technique, everything on the menu is delicious. The craft cocktails and small plates here are exquisite, and they’re made with visual presentation in mind.
Inside, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a Southern mansion, with finely-tuned interior design and tons of light. All of this combined means you’ll be snapping some amazing photos for Instagram of your time here.
