Helpful hints for Nashville from a Nashvillian:
There are a lot of great hot chicken joints in Nashville. Some notary ones are Party Fowl, Hattie B's, Prince's, and Bolton's. Party Fowl and Hattie B's tend to be where I suggest people new to the Hot Chicken Craze start because Prince's, and Bolton's tend to be more heavy-handed with their spices. When it comes to ordering, if you do not feel like standing in a line, order ahead and do pick up, FYI the line can get pretty long at peak hours.
There are three staples of BBQ in Nashville, Edley's, Martin's, and Peg Leg Porker. All three are amazing; but if you find yourself at Edley's you are doing yourself a disservice if you are not ordering yourself a Bushwacker (think of it as an Alcoholic Wendy's Frosty). While these can be found at many locations throughout Nashville, Edley's Bushwakers are Premo in excellence.
Downtown Bar Hopping:
Major tip, don't stay at one bar all night. Each bar has its own scene. there are multi-floor bars (AJ's Good Time Bar, Acme Feed & Seed, Kid Rock, FGL, Jason Aldean's, etc.) and bars that are much more intimate/ historic feel to them (Roberts Western World, Layla's Honky Tonk, Legends, the Stage, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, etc.).
For the Bars that back up against the Ryman Auditorium (looks like a church), if there is a long line in the front, try the back ally entrance. This tends to be faster and has historical significance. During the time when the Grand Ole Opry was originally located at the Ryman, musical acts would scurry back and forth between the Ryman backstage entrance (now enclosed with an iron gate) and the bars across the ally to drink between their sets, and play after hours.
Want to pull an all-nighter? The Diner Nashville (Downtown) and Scoreboard Bar & Grill on Music Valley Drive are 23/7 bars. This means technically "last call" is at 3 am (like all bars in nashville), but these two bars are allowed to re-start serving alcohol at 4 am. During this time the Kitchen is open 24/7.
Do not worry about finding good live music in Nashville, it is everywhere. Bad musicians don't exist in Nashville, this is a well-known fact. if you don't like the music in one location, just go next door, or in many cases, all you need to do is go to a different floor to get a different vibe.
That being said, if you have time, definitely check out who is playing at the Live Music venues in the city, and check out the Nashville Scene for live show listings (https://www.nashvillescene.com).
if you are interested in visiting different Nashville Neighborhoods, check out Nashville Guru (http://nashvilleguru.com/neighborhoods) for a full breakdown of what each neighborhood has to offer.
Demonbreum Hill / Mid-Town / Hillsboro village is more of a local college bar scene.
Melrose, Sylvan Park, the Nations, East Nashville are more residential and hipster in vibe.
All these neighborhoods have tons of great food, shopping, and ragging bars; and non of the tourist trap gimmicks that you find Downtown.
As much as the locals hate it... Rent a BYOB Pedal Tavern, Party Bus, or Tractor and get weird in public. Nothing like being driven around the city while pregaming your night.
