The bowling alley at Pinewood Social in Nashville
Pinewood Social is the Nashville hot spot I was most interested in checking out, especially since my Nashvillian friend described it as, “it feels like a lobby of an Ace Hotel, but without the hotel.” After seeing it for myself, I totally get what she was saying. The 13,000 foot space does feel like a lobby slash adult playground, complete with a six lane hipster bowling alley, a karaoke room, communal tables (complete with electrical outlets) as well as a 30 stool bar in the center of the lobby-like space.
The menu at Pinewood Social
Pinewood Social is definitely fun and the food is kind of fine dining diner– the French Fries are excellent and the Kale Caesar Salad can be ordered in a half ($7) or full size portion ($12). There’s a full drink menu featuring cocktails with cheeky names like “He Who Shall Remain Nameless” and “A Sidecar Named Doug.” The Whiskey Smash was so tasty I stuck with it all night.

While I very much enjoyed the vibe at Pinewood Social, I don’t know if it’s right for a date. It’s much more free-flowing than that. It’s more the sort of place to go for brunch with a group of friends. Come summer, there is an outdoor section with Cabanas and an Airstream for more adult playground goodness.
