Side-by-Side Hideaways

Coming to Nashville? Want somewhere unique to grab a lunch or dinner? I've got two suggestions that happen to sit side by side in the heart and soul of Music City!

Connected by bricks and mortar this one building is separated into two hideaways that will make you want to come back for more! 

The Slider House and Soulshine Pizza Factory can be found on Division Street, just blocks away from Music Row and the campus' of Vanderbilt and Belmont. In my opinion you can't go wrong with either place! So, if you will take my suggestion to try both you won't be sorry! 

The Slider House

If you are looking for a burger place The Slider House is the place to go! Open 7 days a week from 11 am - 3 am, your sure to find sometime to enjoy this up and coming treasure! 

 A slider, in case you didn't know, is a mini burger!! Not only are they tiny and cute they taste AMAZING as well! I first experienced The Slider House when the company I am interning with decided to get a "American" meal in honor of The 4th of July! Whats more American than hamburgers and fries!?

Now with sliders you may want to get more than one. Which is GREAT because you can have two kind of burgers! Monday-Friday there is an awesome lunch special for $7.99 which includes two sliders and a side car. The portions are moderate and well worth the price! They also have GREAT options for sides other than french fries! My favorite burger that I have had has been the 'Old Hickory'.

The rustic chic atmosphere here is amazing! With the two garage doors open you get a feel of being outside without being outside.

 Soulshine Pizza Factory

The new and improved Mellow Mushroom of the pizza world, Soulshine is sure to give you an all around great visit! Located right next door to The Slider House, this two story eatery is one you must visit! Open 7 days a week from 11 am to 9:30 pm and on Thursday-Saturday til 10:30 pm this local joint will have you tapping your toe at the singers and eating the last bite of crust you always leave on the plate. 

The pizza at soul shine is unique and so tasty! My friends and I split The Jacksonian and didn't leave a crumb behind! The thin crust and cheese were cooked to perfect. Luckily, we got to enjoy a night of singing rounds by songwriters while we let the GIANT fan keep us cool on the upper level outside patio. 

The atmosphere at Soulshine is one of a kind and I personally loved every second of it! The first floor has a jazzy feel while the upstairs feels like a mix between a patio party and a sports bar! The view isn't that bad either!

I have told you as much as I can without taking you to these places myself! So, next time you visit Nashville enjoy the non-touristy dining that Music City has to offer!
