The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club

Copy Link

This East Nashville haunt was named Eater Nashville’s bar of the year in 2023 and for good reason — the nonalcoholic options here are just as interesting as their boozy counterparts. The F-150 features a spiced fig gastrique, pomegranate molasses, seltzer, and tarragon, while the bright pink Bird of Paradise combines Dhos bittersweet, pineapple, sesame orgeat, and lime stock. You can find more, like the Cool in Nippon and the Count, on the menu.
