We are glad we went, because our server was AMAZING and she literally pegged us on her drink recommendations like a champ! But the small (but delicious!!!) appetizer plate was definitely not going to cut it as dinner. We didn't realize this was just a...More

Was staying at the Home2 Suites across the street and noticed the small crowd standing outside this inconspicuous blue house. Found out it was The Patterson House and decided to give it a try. You do have to wait a bit, especially since they do...More

I love the speakeasy feel and this place absolutely hits it out of the park. There can be quite a long wait, but it does seem to die down a little after 11pm. My father-in-law and I went in and had several unique and delicious...More

So much potential, but the hostess was unremarkably rude. Avoid this hip joint, many others with hospitable staff (unlike this one). So bad.

The atmosphere was stellar, just not a speakeasy as advertised! Our bartender was Harrison and he gave us an excellent experience. We enjoyed menu and off menu cocktails, but given the traffic it's unlikely you'll get too much personalized attention. Five stars for the homemade...More

This place generally has a decent wait. It is well worth it. The menu is fantastic, and the bartenders will also make you something that is not on the menu if you tell them what type of drink you like. Had the best cocktail ever...More

We had high expectations for this bar, and we were blown away. This is a world class bar. We started with the pimento cheese and grilled bread for an appetizer, which was brilliant! Our first round of drinks was The King and Pudd'nhead Peaks, and...More

My wife and I are aficionados of mixology. The Patterson House showed up on 'the' list of the World's Best Bars. We were traveling through Nashville and had one night so - had to see why they were on the list. I live in San...More

So glad someone told us about Patterson House. It's a little speakeasy nestled away on a Nashville corner. We got there relatively early on a weeknight, gave our name and waited about 20 minutes for a bar table. It was worth the wait. They have...More

They serve a limited menu until they close. The menu is small but the food is great. I have ate their menu for dinner on many occasions.
