Scores of L.A. and New York transplants are finding serenity in Nashville. In recent years this creative Southern metropolis has established ample culinary cred thanks to such lauded restaurants as City House and the Catbird Seat. Music City’s bar game is just as strong, as evidenced by the adventurous Old Glory. A clandestine alleyway leads to this industrial playground in the mixed-use development of Edgehill Village. Decked out with a smokestack, original tiles featuring the og logo and plenty of cement and exposed brick, this onetime boiler room for a 1930s laundry facility is punctuated by a grand, modern staircase. Dreamed up by Miami-reared siblings Alexis and Britt Soler—Britt got her start slinging drinks at Alexis’s first Nashville bar, No. 308—the menu highlights playfully named cocktails that incorporate straight-from-the-kitchen-pantry ingredients. Sip on the Beet Happening or the Garden Hoe (Fords gin, arugula, pineapple, yellow Chartreuse, falernum) while finding fortification in smoked baby potatoes cloaked in paprika butter. –Alia Akkam

What to order: Beet Happening (Fidencio mezcal, beets, Greek yogurt, dill, lime, agave)
