Music-mad mansion

The original Victorian owners of boutique hotel Urban Cowboy in Nashville would need to fetch their smelling salts if they saw the mansion now, with its southwestern patterns, crowd-pulling bar and instrument-packed parlour – including a drum kit and a fire-engine-red piano. Each of the eight suites is individually designed and has a downright Instagrammable claw-foot bath tub. So pick up a guitar, say cheers to a glass of Southern spirits and spend an evening around the restaurant’s backyard firepit like a Nashville local. Cowboys and country stars would approve; the Victorians didn't know what they were missing…

Our favourite rooms

Each individually designed room has a ridiculously photogenic claw-foot bath tub, so every visiting cowboy and girl can soak in style. Sea lovers will feel right at home (and a bit less landlocked) in the Captain, which has a porthole window and subtle nautical decorations. The standalone Cabin is the most private and spacious of the lot; it has an in-room bar and its freestanding tub sits in front of a glittering starburst of reclaimed wood and copper.

Packing tips

Bring your felt hat, cowboy boots and favourite guitar pick.


This revamped historic house has ramp access, but narrow doorways and no accessible guest rooms.


Leave the tots at home for this city break – they’re too young for the whiskey and honky tonk bars anyway.

Food and Drink

Top Table

The fairy-light–strung patio has a mix-and-mingle approach to seating and a 16-foot fireplace adorned with a bull’s skull. Pull up a chair by the firepit to feel like a real cowboy.

Dress Code

Double denim, turquoise jewelry and a Pendleton wrap for evenings under the stars (and the twinkling fairy lights).

Hotel restaurant

Hip watering hole Public House attracts guests and locals alike with its modern American fare, craft cocktails and backyard bonfire. The rockabilly rustic bar and restaurant is open for dinner and has exposed brick walls, reclaimed wood installations by 1767, a handful of vintage finds and Pendleton-lookalike bench seats; a roll-up garage-style glass door opens to the patio, with its hodge podge of metal and leather chairs. Chef Tom Bayless has dreamed up the locally sourced menu that relies heavily on Argentinian-style grilling over an open fire. No tins of beans around a campfire here; favourites include aged smoked beef, charred sweet potatoes, roasted spaghetti squash, oysters and chicken wings. Continental breakfast is laid out in the Parlor Bar. Fresh pastries – croissants, pain au chocolat, muffins, scones and galettes – are delivered piping hot from local Dozen Bakery. The breakfast spread also includes seasonal fruits, yoghurt, granola, oatmeal and your usual roundup of breakfast beverages.

Hotel bar

Parlor Bar is opposite the instrument-filled lounge; take a break from that old time rock’n’roll and plonk down in one of the bar’s vintage leather chairs with your libation of choice. Public House doubles as a craft cocktail bar, pouring out Nashville twists on the classics; blue Collars take the place of Manhattans, the Old Fashioned has a splash of cognac and the Gimlet is basil-infused. Order from the full restaurant menu, or nibble on bar snacks – charred beef fat olives and smoked bread with pork fat butter – until late.

Last orders

Breakfast is served from 8.30am to 10.30am. The Public House is open from 4pm to 11pm (midnight on Fridays and Saturdays), but dinner service stops at 10pm. The Parlor Bar’s open from 3pm to 9pm.

Urban Cowboy’s in a residential neighborhood of East Nashville.


Nashville International Airport is 15 minutes away by car. You can catch direct flights from across North America, but most international flights have a stopover in a major US hub first.


There’s street parking outside the hotel and a parking lot for the bar and restaurant.


Bonus points to urban cowfolk who ride their trusty steed into town, but you’ll have a hard time finding a convenient hitching post.

Worth getting out of bed for

Soak your cowboy blues away in your tub or pony up for in-room spa treatments (there’s a menu to choose from). If you’re feeling social, pick up a guitar and strum along in the parlour. Take colourful holiday snaps in front of vibrant street art in Five Points, search for East Nashville finery on Fatherland Street, and stroll down the tree-lined riverside greenway in Shelby Park. Search through stacks of new-to-you vintage vinyl in East Nashville’s Fond Object Records or rock up to one of their outdoor performances or backyard film nights (check the events schedule first). Pick up everything you’ll need for open mic night at Fanny’s House of Music - new and secondhand instruments and stage-worthy vintage clothing. And if you've forgotten those three guitar chords you learned that one time, they offer music lessons that’ll unleash your inner Johnny Cash or Followill gang talents. Take a tour of the Grand Ole Opry and walk in the steps of country music greats; Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks have all performed on the various incarnations of the legendary stage. Elvis had one ill-fated performance at the Opry (the conservative crowd didn’t appreciate his gyrating hips or rockabilly rendition of Blue Moon of Kentucky), but fans of the King can visit RCA Studio B – where he cut 150 tracks – after a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Local restaurants

Brunch like you’ve just signed a record deal (maybe you have) at Butcher & Bee on East Nashville’s Main Street. Try their signature B&B biscuit with whipped feta, honey butter and a soft scrambled egg or the eatery’s Jalapeño-spiced fried chicken and cornbread waffles. Shake off the shadow of the previous night’s shenanigans with a cup of Crema coffee, a Mexican coke or an ice-cold Cheerwine. Sky Blue Cafe’s strong coffee, breakfast burritos and French toast – stuffed with brie and drizzled with local honey – will also clear away any morning haze. Old-timey malt shop meets biergarten The Pharmacy will cure what ails you… In need of a little nostalgia? Syrup-infused phosphate sodas and ice cream floats can be whipped up in jiff. Need some fresh air? Spend an alfresco evening under the stars in the beer garden, sipping your way through imported ales and local brews. Spud deficient? Take your pick from hand-cut sweet potato fries, tater tots and German potato salad. Just plain hungry? Order burgers – cheese-topped, bacon-stacked or made-from-legumes – or sharing plates of Bavarian-style wursts. Book ahead for dinner at The Treehouse, where the mod menu changes daily. Order a cocktail – an apricot-infused vodka and gin Passenger or a grapefruit-laced Road to Nowhere – and tuck into artichoke and spinach pierogi or wild Georgia shrimp (dipped into horseradish sauce with the heat of the Southern sun), then move on to mains of seabass with grilled okra or DIY steamed duck buns with spicy cherry sauce. Bistro Margot Café and Bar, a Five Points favourite set in a 1930s petrol station, serves Tuscan and Provençal fare with a Southern twang. Snag a table on the covered brick patio and save room for decadent desserts – caramel pecan brownie tarts, coconut cream pie, fig hazelnut shortbread and grown-up ice cream sandwiches.

Local bars

If you can pry yourself away from the Public House (and the house supply of cowboy-approved whiskey), mosey on over to speakeasy-style Attaboy for one-off cocktail creations. There’s no menu – all drinks are personalised to suit your taste.

Anonymous review

By Allyson Morgan, Script-penning producer and actress

I visited good friends in Nashville about a year ago and was treated to unending craft cocktails in rowdy honky tonks, and was immersed in a thoroughly unique hipster-meets-cowboy culture, so I was thrilled to return for a friend’s birthday celebration. One year later, however, Nashville has been through a lot: first a devastating tornado, then the effects of Covid-19, which came into full view during my stay at boutique hotel Urban Cowboy, not through any fault of their own. The phrase ‘Nashville Strong’ can be found graffitied and on screen-printed t-shirts around town, and I soon found out exactly what it meant. 

To be completely honest, I didn’t have high customer-service expectations for Urban Cowboy, given the current state of the city (and the world). But to say the eight-room property rose to the challenge is an understatement. In fact, once inside, the outside world melted away. The hotel is decorated the way the name suggests: while you’ll find animal skulls on the wall and wood-panelling everywhere, there’s no shortage of modern touches, such as band instruments available for playing and a modern, fully stocked bar, from which welcome drinks are offered on arrival. (I had the local Tennessee whiskey to take the edge off the pandemic, for the record.) I say when in Rome (or in Nashville), do as the locals do. The only minor disruption at the time of my stay was the lack of WiFi as a result of the tornado, but the clawfoot bath tub in my master suite more than made up for it – and was a welcome distraction from the news.

Each of Urban Cowboy’s rooms has a different theme, depending on if you’re seeking a more feminine room, such as the Victorian with its frilly edges, or masculine, like the Captain with its seafaring touches, or anything in between. I was automatically upgraded to the luxurious Midnight Rider room on the ground floor (I had booked the Muse, which was still under repair from the previous week’s storm), which I’d describe as a cosy cabin in the woods styled by Jon Snow: a giant wolf-like faux-fur blanket stretched across the generous and supremely comfortable king-size bed, and on the (non-working) fireplace mantelpiece were a selection of bandannas which you could buy. There were comfy leather chairs for lounging, and an antler chandelier, plus your own door to the sitting porch out front. As mentioned, the showpiece is an oversized bath tub in the middle of the room; there’s also a regular shower, but I took advantage of filling the tub with steaming hot water and sliding into a sweet-smelling bubble bath (courtesy of C.O. Bigelow bath products) with a tub of local queso I ordered from Postmates. (Again, do as the locals do.)

In the morning, I perused the Continental breakfast options from my perch by the cosy fireplace in the Parlor Bar. It was a comforting mix of healthy options, such as fresh fruit and oatmeal, and less-healthy treats like chocolate croissants, fluffy blueberry muffins, and savoury goat-cheese galettes. The coffee was strong and fresh, which I swigged as fuel for exploring the hip East Nashville neighborhood and its various treasures, such as local vintage favorites Hip Zipper and Anaconda. As Nashville bars and restaurants were just starting to shut down due to virus concerns, I wasn’t able to fully experience the  hotel’s bar Public House, but I had visited it on my previous trip, and my memory is of mingling locals and tourists - friendly hipsters all in search of a well-mixed cocktail on a homey porch beside an enormous fire pit. Hopefully they’ll be back up and running soon.

One thing that can be said about Nashville and the generous staff at Urban Cowboy is that it takes more than natural disaster to break their spirit. As I was preparing to make my way back home and into the great unknown of whatever awaits us in the current climate, I was greeted at 8am with a warm smile and piping hot cup of coffee (and a gigantic box of pastries just for me) – I was the last guest to check out, for now, and someone was there to make sure I felt taken care of. It’s the small acts of kindness that count the most, particularly in difficult times, and there’s no shortage of genuine hospitality at Urban Cowboy. Nashville is strong indeed, but also resilient and considerate.
