1601 Golf St.

Nashville, TN 37216



This weekend, we’re hosting an Open House at 1601 Golf Street, our newest listing in Inglewood. It's a thoroughly cute and thoroughly renovated 1953 stone cottage, walking distance to one of East Nashville’s most charming, potential-filled pockets of fun: Riverside Village.

Go back a decade, and the area around Riverside and McGavock wasn’t much to speak of. But in the past handful of years, Riverside Village has grown into a hub of restaurants, shops and bars that’s small but mighty, with huge, tight-knit neighborhood appeal. If access to creative and cool independent businesses is part of why you’re drawn to East Nashville, but you’d prefer to have property with privacy and a little more chill, this one’s for you.

Check out some of my favorite Riverside Village stops below, and check out the listing for 1601 Golf Street to learn more there. If you’re intrigued, come by for the Open House Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.! 

Great places to go in East Nashville’s Riverside Village

Mitchell Deli

1402 McGavock Pike 

Did you know you can get one of the best sandwiches in America right here in Nashville? Right in Riverside Village, specifically, at fantastic and freshness-focused Mitchell Delicatessen. The accolade came from Travel Channel show Adam Richman's Best Sandwich in America, and the particularly praised menu item was Mitchell’s Asian Flank Steak, with amazing marinated steak and Giardiniera and a crusty ciabatta roll. But pretty much everything they make is over-the-top great, and the patio is an exceptional hang in the warm months.

Village Pub & Beer Garden 

1308 McGavock Pike

If Nashville has a Cheers, it’s this place, a fantastically friendly neighborhood pub that makes you feel at home from moment one. Helps, too, that they serve really great pretzel-bun sandwiches to soak up whatever it is you’re drinking. And on Mondays, they do a half-priced Mule thing, serving the classic cocktails (not just the Moscow variety, you can also get tequila, scotch and more) out of ice-cold (and all-cool) metal mugs.

Rudie's Seafood and Sausage

1402 McGavock Pike

A newer concept from the folks behind Mitchell, Rudie’s excels at what the name implies — house-made and -cured sausages and fresh oysters — but the menu has a lot of other great options, too, from Parisian Mussels to super-indulgent poutine. The beer selection’s pretty spot-on, too.

Perk & Cork 

1304 McGavock Pike

One of the newest additions to Riverside Village, Perk & Cork is an “espresso and wine eatery” — basically your neighborhood coffee shop and your neighborhood stop for a wind-down glass of wine in one. They have great food (pastries baked in house, tasty panini and wraps), and have cool tasting nights that are a surefire excuse for a walk over. Tuesdays are tapas and wine tasting, items rotating weekly. Perfect ritual.

Fond Object 

1313 McGavock Pike

There’s kinda not another shop like Fond Object in Nashville. Or anywhere, for that matter. Launched by members of rock band The Ettes, it’s part cool/curated record store, part vintage shop, part custom clothing boutique, part outdoor performance venue/movie theater. Oh, and part rescue petting zoo — swing by and say hi to Dottie, the resident potbellied big, and her goat buddies.

Riverside Village Pharmacy

1406A McGavock Pike 

A true neighborhood drugstore isn’t something you see all that much anymore, and it’s cool that Riverside Village Pharmacy bucks that trend. It’s a full compound pharmacy, well-stocked with all the essentials you might need — from snacks to cleaning supplies to baby food to herbal tea — plus a fantastic gift selection, with a focus on local artisans and businesses. The staff actually remembers your name, too — a lost art.

Bailey & Cato

1307 McGavock Pike 

Rock-solid barbecue and soul food, from ribs to fried chicken? Done. 

 Into the idea of being a stroll away from all this great stuff and more? Come by 1601 Golf Street on Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m., and take a look!
