The Gulch Travel Guide

The Gulch

Nashville’s Gulch neighborhood has one of the city’s most interesting origin stories: Once a busy rail yard anchored by the commuter lines that ran through Union Station, the area fell out of favor after the rail services shut down in 1979. But in the early 2000s, young investors and developers lay the foundation for the hip, walkable mixed-use neighborhood that has blossomed into one of the ritziest and dynamic areas of Nashville. Some might even say the Nashville boom directly followed the Gulch's rise. Now mainly a destination for foodies and savvy, daring restaurateurs from across the country, the Gulch is characterized by its high-end condos, plentiful boutiques, and diverse music venues. From old Nashville staples like the bluegrass haven of The Station Inn to the new rooftop oases serving up skyline views and inventive cocktails, it’s clear this is a neighborhood where Southern tradition meets urban progress.
