The Vibe: Funky but refined, retro but minimalist.
The Area: The Gulch has become one of Nashville’s most desired neighbourhoods, several blocks from downtown, but with charms that make it a destination in its own right. The streets are dotted with bars, restaurants and shops.
The DNA: The centerpiece of the city’s transformed Gulch neighborhood, the towering all-glass Thompson Nashville made its splashy debut at the end of 2016 and was an instant favorite for its hotspot rooftop bar, L.A. Jackson, and sharp style that’s all dark hardwoods, brushed brass and plush velvets. Designed by Parts and Labor Design, the hotel celebrates Nashville’s creative spirit while also embracing a modern experience that aims to be both nostalgic and fashion-forward. Upon entering the hotel, guests are greeted by an inlay of a wooden compass rose made from locally salvaged materials that includes a brass detailing of the hotel’s global coordinates. The lobby is filled with custom-designed light fixtures and furniture to create a vintage charm. The hotel offers three dining options: Marsh House, serving seafood; Killebrew, serving pastries; and Revelator Coffee, serving shareable small plates, Southern beer and cocktails.
Suite-Me-Up: The hotel’s guestrooms and suites are meant to provide a residential feel. All rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows and warm, wooden floors, wallpaper, and as well as custom-designed rugs. Suites feature wet bars and central hearths. Bathrooms feature graphic floor tile, milky toned white tile walls and a hand-selected sculpture. In-room dining is available, along with extensive in-room mini bars.
