Green Hills

Establishment neighborhood
SB
3912 Hillsboro Circle, Green Hills
This past summer, local interior designer Sarah Bartholomew opened SB in Green Hills, a leafy, residential neighborhood south of the city center. It’s a reflection of Bartholomew’s impeccable taste and her vision of what today’s classic décor should be, which often involves a mix of bold patterns and bright, floral-inspired colors. You’ll find a tightly edited selection of handmade and artisan textiles, tableware, antiques, and home accessories (like brass match strikers, vintage mercury glasses, and hand-poured candles).
Karee Hays Esthetics
2309 Crestmoor Rd., Green Hills
This Green Hills studio manages to be both a medical skin-care center and a spa haven, a dichotomy that trickles down from founder Karee Hays, a medical aesthetician. The Glow Facial involves a deep-steam detox with extractions followed by microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, lymphatic massage, and a chemical peel. You’re sent home with a customized regimen and complimentary two-week follow-up, to make sure your skin is thriving—or at least well on its way.
Bluebird Cafe
4104 Hillsboro Rd., Green Hills
Located just fifteen minutes outside of Downtown Nashville, this low-key spot hosts an open mic where you can hear up-and-coming and established singer-songwriters. Some of the biggest legends in country music have performed here, including Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks, Taylor Swift, and Keith Urban. A typical nightly performance consists of a “songwriters in the round,” where three to four take turns playing their songs and accompanying each other instrumentally and with harmony vocals. This is another rec from Reese Witherspoon.
