L.O.V.E. This place!!

I love everything about the Patterson House! Intimate atmosphere, excellent servers and the drinks are out of this world! They are a little pricey but so worth it! Not the place to go if you want a bucket of beer. The drinks are like s little work of art! Great for couple ms and small intimate... read more

Everyone should experience this place at-least once the drink menu and the drinks they make are amazing and entertaining to watch and the drinks themselves are entertaining with flavors you wouldn't expect I can't comment on food here cause I have never eaten here but I'm sure it's equally amazing! This is a must try for a trip to Nashville!

This place is really neat. It is a speakeasy with a lot of charm. It opens at 5 on a Friday and some wait in line before they open. We had a party of 10 and got there around 4:30 to make sure we could get a table for that many since there is only one table that fits 10.... More

Don't be fooled by the Catbird Seat name on the outside of the building, as this is the "front name" for the speak easy styled bar within. You walk in the door and through a curtain and you've been transformed back to prohibition. The bar was so cool and definitely an experience. The bar tenders were very very friendly and... More

My boyfriend and I visited one night because this place was on our "must see" list. We waited outside for around an hour, which was kind of annoying (especially when we were only in town for a few days - not a lot of "time to kill"). But it was a beautiful summer night, so not unbearable! The atmosphere is... More

I went to the Patterson House b/c everyone kept telling me how amazing it is so maybe I was underwhelmed b/c of the build-up. To me, it was just a fancier than average bar that serves expensive fancy drinks. I love history and I did really appreciate the old-fashioned ambiance of the bar, but I have no plans to go... More

I had one lunch there, the menu is extremely unfriendly to vegetarians. I ended up ordering the shrimp and grits and there was definitely bacon in the sauce. You would think that the waiter would have alerted me to that fact having had a detailed discussion of my needs and the limitations of the menu. This was the same waiter... More

Went to The Patterson House for after dinner drinks. I loved the sophisticated atmosphere. Noise level was great for conversation and drinks made from fresh fruits at the bar. They do have a dinner menu, can't wait to go back for another date night!

Awesome bar below the Catbird Seat restaurant. It was one of the coolest bars I've ever been to with amazing creative drinks and snacks as well. Don't miss out on this prize of Nashville.

Expected a wait but not 2 hours and if not for that it would have been awesome. Next time i will make sure to make reservations for 2 as that seemed to go faster. We were 2 couples hence the wait for a booth. Best to sit in the bar to see how everything is made! Would have loved to... More
