If you're looking to live within close proximity to downtown Nashville, but not necessarily downtown, this is your neighborhood. Midtown is just a stone's throw from the Broadway lights, tucked away between Music Row, Vanderbilt University, and West End. Featuring beautiful homes and picturesque streets, Midtown is a quaint, walkable area that is thriving with ample opportunity. It is truly the perfect combination of city and suburban life.
Located on the north side of Midtown is Vanderbilt University, known as one of the most prestigious universities in the south. Founded in 1873, Vanderbilt encompasses over 300 acres and is the perfect spot for an afternoon stroll. Featuring beautiful architecture, perfectly sculpted gardens and lawns, and a FREE art gallery, this university is the heartbeat behind Midtown/Hillsboro Village.
If you find yourself looking for something to do in this neighborhood, your options are limitless. Filled with boutique shops and local restaurants, there isn't a bad choice on the block. A Nashville staple, Pancake Pantry, is a legendary breakfast spot that is well worth the wait outside the door (tip: try to go during the week, the line's shorter). Another can't miss restaurant is San Antonio Taco Company (known by locals as SATCO). If you love a good patio, SATCO has one you can't beat. On Taco Tuesday you'll find a line out the door, but trust us – you won't regret the wait when you taste their award winning cheese dip. Looking to catch a game on TV? Head to Hillsboro Village's token sports bar, Double Dogs. Fair warning: you'll want to grab a table well before the game starts!
If you're into the arts, Hillsboro Village is home to Nashville's favorite theater house, The Belcourt. Here you'll find a diverse selection of productions ranging from tried-and-true classics to independent and foreign films to musical performances to live theater. There is always something happening at the Belcourt, which was recently remodeled to accommodate Nashville's growing demand for the arts!
Urban, vibrant, and walkable are just three characteristics that set Midtown apart from other areas of Nashville. There is a mix of single-family homes, multi-level apartment complexes, and everything in between. You are minutes away from the bustling downtown scene but far enough removed to host a gathering in your very own beautiful backyard – truly the best of both worlds!
