Check Into the Bobby Hotel Nashville: Offering an Authentic Music City Experience & Excellent Fare
Bobby Hotel has the charming appeal of a boutique hotel saturated in Nashville flavor. Opened in May of 2018, Bobby Hotel’s style is modeled after Nashville’s iconic Printers Alley, a place you’ll find Music City’s original bars and restaurants. Bright, colorful pieces of art highlighting music’s greats --The Rolling Stones logo, Madonna, and Elvis Presley-- adorn the walls. A statement chandelier crafted from car parts hangs overhead. A lone guitar rests beside two leather egg-shaped chairs, waiting to be played. Enormous sparkling chandeliers, marble, and a stone fireplace add touches of glamour. The juxtaposition of industrial metals and brass with reclaimed artisan wood, velvet, and leather create a space that is modern and welcoming. It’s city meets southern comfort. And this is just the lobby.
A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Bobby Hotel has received a number of awards, including the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award. The nine-story hotel boasts 144 spacious rooms featuring that wanderlust-music vibe. Rooms are appointed with a custom wall unit featuring Nashvilleinspired etchings, Rorschach inkblot carpeting, historic world maps inspired by the musicians’ life on the road, and a record player with vinyls by The Beatles and Carrie Underwood. The bathrooms feature glass pane walls and William Roam bath products. Rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi, a fully-stocked mini bar, a Smart TV with Netflix, turndown service, and 24-hour room service.
You definitely want to dine at Bobby Hotel -- their food is among the best in town. There are four eateries onsite. Tavern at Bobby serves locally-sourced, globally-inspired fare. The Rooftop Lounge provides stunning views of Nashville and serves up all-day eats like Braised Beef Cheek Quesadillas; Baked Goat Cheese; and Tortilla Chips, Guacamole, and Salsa. And what’s cooler than imbibing libations in the back of a 1956 retrofitted Greyhound bus? Yes, you can do that here. Bobby’s Garage Bar serves cocktails, beer, and must-have snacks, like the Donut Grilled Cheese with applewood bacon.
Right off the lobby is Café at Bobby, a small French-inspired café that serves a small, but excellent, artisanal menu. I had the Pan Roasted Salmon, which featured complex layers of flavor and texture with the sweet corn, salty bacon, buttered succotash, fried okra, and pools of green goddess. It was delicious. The Bobby Burger is not your average burger --it’s fully loaded with cheddar, bacon, green tomato, lettuce, onion, topped with a toasted brioche bun, and served with fries. But what really sells it is the chili jam --that wonderful hint of sweetness takes this burger to the next level. And the Tomato Fennel Bisque with Brie croutons is a must. The brie croutons definitely elevate the already tasty tomato soup. You bite into the crouton and the creamy, melty brie makes contact with your taste buds and you’re blown away. It’s comfort food at its finest. I was very impressed with the flavors injected into these often simple dishes. Featuring indoor and outdoor seating, the café also serves coffee, tea, and cocktails, and is open for breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch.
Additional amenities include a rooftop pool, fitness center, and The Spa at Bobby. Bobby Hotel offers over 7,000 square feet of event space (ranging from studios and boardrooms to the rooftop) for entertaining and meetings. Bobby Hotel is ideally situated in a convenient location --steps from Broadway and downtown Nashville’s thriving food, music, and entertainment scene. The hotel is pet-friendly too. The next time you’re planning a getaway and want a lively city with delicious fare, great music, and entertainment, think Nashville, then book your room at Bobby Hotel --you won’t be disappointed.
