  • The hip L.A. Jackson (401 11th Ave. S., 615/262-6007) at the Thompson hotel features DJ action from Third Man Records.

  • The country-themed UP (901 Division St., 615/690-1722) in The Gulch’s Fairfield Inn & Suites serves disco-spiked punch and a Music City Sour (with apricot liqueur, lemon juice, and fresh rosemary) to sip while you take in the scene.

  • There’s no cover at Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar (307 Broadway), but if you’re headed here just for the view, note that the rooftop has different hours than the rest of the bar.

  • At Downtown Sporting Club, a hybrid hotel concept opened in 2019, you’ll find not only a rooftop bar, but. axe throwing, a coffee shop, and more entertainment.

  • While Nudie’s Honky Tonk (409 Broadway) boasts about its mega-long indoor bar, its rooftop deck is also a scene-stealer.
