When most people head out for a night of drinks and entertainment in Nashville, they often think of hitting up a place on either Broadway or 2nd Avenue North. The West Nashville roofing contractors at Mighty Dog are here to tell you there are some great bars and pubs around for anyone willing to step west of the city. The Music City, and its surrounding areas, are home to some of the best bars in the world. In fact, we have compiled a list of the best bars in West Nashville to visit.

These are our recommendations for where to get a drink in West Nashville:

Jonathan's Grille

Jonathan's Grill has several locations around Tennessee (and Alabama), but the atmosphere at the Franklin location is why we put the bar at Jonathan's at the top of our list. Sports fans love to head to Jonathan's to watch their favorite team play on one of the 55 TVs placed throughout the bar. Enjoy watching the game with your favorite drink, and don't forget the appetizers! We recommend the Southwest Eggrolls. If you plan to stay for a meal, try one of their signature pizzas.

O'Charley's Restaurant & Bar

The bar at O'Charley's Restaurant combines the ambiance of an upscale pub with a dive bar. We don't know how they do it, but the eclectic atmosphere is one guests truly enjoy.

We love to stop in for their seasonal specials, like their Dog Days Pink Lemonade Shady or the Hawaiian Five Ale. Looking for a hard seltzer? Quinn's offers a variety of Vizzy Hard Seltzers made in Memphis, Tennessee. Our favorite is their Strawberry Kiwi flavor, but we suggest you try them all!
