The booming Gulch neighborhood now has a one-stop-shop for ice cream, sundaes, (spiked) milkshakes, coffee, cocktails, and breakfast sandwiches.
The opening menu at The Nashville Sundae Club (335 11th Ave S., Nashville) is split into three sections: “The Ice Cream Club” (banana split sundaes and Fruity Pebbles milkshakes); “The Breakfast Club” (muffins, cinnamon rolls, eggy sandwiches, cappuccinos, and lattes); and “The Cocktail Club” (Old Fashioneds, frose, and mimosas).
Opening hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The all-day cafe comes from Red Pebbles Hospitality, the group behind Nashville’s Adele’s, 404 Kitchen, and Ella’s on 2nd, among others. There’s also a Nulu Sundae Club in Louisville, Kentucky, which is temporarily closed.
Scoops sourced from Wisconsin’s family-owned Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream help create indulgent treats like a “Grasshopper” sundae (Mint Avalanche ice cream, hot fudge, Oreo cookies, and whipped cream) for $9.25.
The biggest sundae of the bunch is a DIY helping of eight scoops and five toppings ($35).
Soft serve flavors can be swirled and served in cake or waffle cones. Scoops in kids’, double, or triple sizes ($4.50-$6.50) come in 16 flavors, including the Midwest maker’s award-winning “This $&@! Just Got Real” salted caramel and sweet banana “Fat Elvis” made with milk from pasture-raised cows of Sassy Cow Creamery. Spiked milkshakes pour in Disaronno and Skrewball peanut butter whiskey.
Cocktail highlights include a “Honey Peach Smash” (Tennessee whiskey muddled with honey, fresh peaches, lemons, and mint) and an “All-Day Espresso” built with Louisa caramel coffee liqueur, Stoli vanilla vodka, and Lavazza cold brew ($13 each). Other 21-and-up options include a margarita, bloody mary, and spiked lemonade slushy.
