Family Wash is a very intimate and friendly destination in East Nashville for decent eats, good drinks and great music. Some of the city's best musicians and songwriters grace the small stage. You can almost be assured that, if there is live music happening, it'll be very worthwhile. The beer selection is very deep and the bar staples, like Shepherd's Pie, are solid and reasonable priced fare.

We went the Saturday before Halloween so there were a lot of people dressed up and into that vibe, which is not my thing. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool bar in East Nashville. Not sure that I'd define it as a hipster hangout, but I could see where some would. There was a band playing. It seems like they charged a cover unless you were eating, which we did. I had the shepherd's pie, and yes, as many on Yelp and other sites say it is good. I won't say it's the best I've every had. But that's probably because my mother in law is British. It is a huge serving; too much for one person. They have a decent beer selection.

On Tuesdays its Pie and Pint night! Great deal! The pies are big and there is usually some form of entertainment playing.

We went on "pint and pie" night, and you could not beat the $10 beer and shepherd's pie. Great selection of beer, excellent pie.
