Fun experience and fantastic drinks! Don't know what to have? Ask the mixologist what you want and they will make you something great!

Great place for a unique drink. Friendly Bartenders who know their stuff. I just told them what I like to drink and got a perfect unique cocktail.

Recommended to me by a bartender at a hotel bar. Still one of my favorite bars I have been to. Go as soon as they open to avoid the wait. Drinks made from scratch the right way. Very knowledgeable bartenders. Keep trying to go back, but never in the area.

I have been going to The Patterson House for years now, so this review is way over due. This is the one of the best places I have ever been to for cocktails. If you are reading this review then you most likely are considering The Patterson House for maybe a pregame location or just a night out with friends.... More

Loved this bar! Very cozy and charming. While there is no live music like most places we visited, the Patterson House was a memorable experience!

Great drinks, and great times. Waits can be long, especially on weekends and should be expected. This is a great place to start or end your night! Craft cocktails to cover all types of taste and preferences.

If you are a craft cocktail fan, The Patterson House is a must. If you blink on the way you might miss it though. It's a secluded spot in true to the Speakeasy theme of the prohibition era. A romantic spot for couples or foursomes, not a great place for groups. They have an extensive menu of craft cocktails and... More

Some girlfriends and I spent a long weekend in Nashville for the sole purpose of eating and drinking. This place topped our favorites list. Have the address handy when you're looking for Patterson House- it embodies the speakeasy style and you'll likely pass right by. The staff is friendly, welcoming and served up drinks with a genuine smile. There is... More
