Although it doesn’t quite feel it yet, it is now officially Spring, which means patio season is looming large in Middle Tennessee. And while rooftop bars are now par for the course in downtown Nashville, two unique options just hit the market last week, with the reopening of The Westin’s L27 and the expansion of Broadway bar staple Paradise Park Trailer Resort.
L27, the rooftop lounge on the 27th and 28th floors of The Westin Nashville, is not exactly new. Located at 807 Clark Place, it first made its debut in the fall of 2016. But after wear and tear from the crowds, as well as the need for a different design aesthetic, it closed down for a complete overhaul in mid-January, reopening just last week. And the finished product is night and day compared to the original. Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward of L.A. and Nashville-based interior design group Pierce & Ward handled the redesign, which includes renovations and new furnishings both inside and out. Some of the more significant changes include a complete revamp of the main bar and permanent, covered cabanas lining the dipping pool. Take a look below:
And on the polar opposite end of the rooftop bar spectrum is the new Paradise Park expansion which just opened last weekend.
Located at 411 Broadway in the heart of downtown, Strategic Hospitality’s ever-popular watering hole has taken over the fourth floor rooftop which was previously home to Aerial, the restaurant group’s dedicated event space. The 2,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor bar now features artificial turf, open seating, cornhole, and a few interior TVs. Beverage offerings include beer and liquor, with customers able to order from the full Paradise Park kitchen menu.
Regular operating hours will be Thursday from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. It will also be open for all Nashville Predators hockey games, but be sure to call before you go, as hours and days are subject to change due to private events.
