Re: “Pour House Burgers, Bourbons & Brews

TL;DR: Service is spotty, food is mediocre, though they have a great booze selection and are very kind to drunks.

Like others, I was wondering what they were building for all those months in front of Frugal MacDoogal's. I'm also wondering why more businesses don't put up some kind of "coming soon" sign while they are being built. Before I get too far along, I want to explain my rating. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. Since they are new (and hopefully improving), I went with a 4, but my rating might have also been inspired a little by the round of Woodford Reserve Four Wood bourbon my friend bought us!

A couple of guys in our group do enjoy their bourbons and they were the main reason we ended up here. When we are out, they will order typically want something fancy like Blanton's while I'm happy with Jim Beam or a beer. Everyone in our group likes burgers though, and we agree that the food was good, not the best ever but not bad. My cheeseburger was big and cooked right and the sweet potato fries were tasty.

The environment is very nice and the beer and spirits selections are impressive. Didn't take long to get service once we seated ourselves, but we were so loud it was probably hard to ignore us. Prices are reasonable and we think the potential there, especially once the weather is good enough to take advantage of the outdoor seating.

I've wandered in twice minutes before closing after ragers at the breweries down the road, and they've been kind enough to let me buy their last plates of the night and get me a cab. Super nice of them, and I won't begrudge them my money for it!

Re: “360 Burger

Stepped in for a few, but stayed for awhile. Cool spot to for date night. Just a bit dark and the TVs could be larger. The food smelled great, I had already eaten but I live close and will be back!

Re: “Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The Saucer is one of the best places to enjoy microbrews in a town with increasing choices. Service can be uneven and the food is unexceptional, but the staff trains regularly on the vast array of beer selections and the bartenders in particular are knowledgeable. If you are over twenty five you might prefer the vibe at happy hour and during weekend days as the place can become inundated with Vandy students on late evenings. Special events include beer tastings, a trivia night and live music from consistently average retro and alternative bands.

Re: “The Gold Rush

While they did "clean up" the Gold Rush, they also cleaned out much of the essence that made it the greatest bar in Nashville. It could use a bit more warmth...too many tall tables and stools were put in during renovation. Having a few boothes in the front room would help the atmosphere greatly. It has to potential to be great once again, but as it stands I visit out of nostalgia and because it was my home away from home for many years. This bar could really be great again, I still give it a decent rating out of loyalty, but they should try to cater to their old clientele if they want to become truly successful again.

Re: “Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The saucer offers a very knowledgeable staff. They can tell you what beer you will probably like, even if you aren't much of a beer drinker. It is very relaxed and has lots of comfortable seating. The beer garden is a great place to hang out, especially when the garage doors are open.

Re: “The Patterson House

My first time at the Patterson was a huge success. After having dinner somewhere else stopped by to have a couple of cocktails and relax. I will say the Patterson has brought drink mixology to another level. Drink flavors that included rye bread and lime and ginger and mint. There was a party going on inside my mouth. Also, had the light dessert beignets with cinammon, sugar and salt. Wow, what a dessert. The ladies from Atlanta sitting beside me were yelling about having orgasms and that it was the best thing they had ever put in their mouth. What more can I say. I will definitely be back. I forgot to mention a really cool laid back atmosphere. This place has it all going on.
