Even though it’s the central hotspot for a lot of Nashville’s live music scene, South Broadway’s huge bars can skew touristy and get overwhelmingly rowdy at night. Acme Feed & Seed’s bold challenge to that stereotype has been really well received so far, offering the familiar multi-level bar and live music experience in a cleaned-up, modern style that draws a local crowd. The first floor of the space features a store with locally crafted goods and Acme-branded pantry items, plus a restaurant with a fast-casual menu of Southern-inflected dishes like Redneck Lo Mein with collard greens and an andouille soy glaze, a Down Home Falafel Sandwich, and flavorful ribs. The vibe is more casual upstairs on the second level, which has a built-out bar and lounge, a small-bites food menu, and a sushi bar. The live music space occupies the third floor, where the calendar is filled up with a solid lineup of local bands (it can also be rented out for private parties). The open-air roof at the top of the building is privy to some of the best views in the city, and you can come in early on the weekends for yoga classes.
