About the restaurant
Tucked away within The Joseph Nashville, Four Walls is an intimate cocktail bar for the knowing. Holding the tension between elegance and edge, a visceral experience of unexpected textures awaits. Hide on the wall. Fringe in the air. Fizz. Marble. Leather. Experience a celebration of the classic cowboy culture of the American West through an Italian lens with an artfully crafted selection of signature cocktails, negronis, and forgotten classics. Indulge and be sated... at last.

We went to the cocktail bar before going to Yolan for dinner. We had a fabulous experience at Four Walls. The cocktails were outstanding and very creative. Our bartender was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with. Highly recommend this place. One of the best cocktail bars in Nashville.

Park Cafe is consistently great...delicious food and excellent service. Their burgers are top notch! We even ate on the patio in 90 degree weather; we were in the shade and they had high-powered fans moving the air. Surprisingly comfortable.

About the restaurant
The Stillery is the kind of place you can relax, eat outstanding, fresh food, and enjoy a signature mason jar cocktail. We serve up amazing brick fired pies, juicy stacked burgers, fresh salads and tantalizing starters. The menu is comprised of what could be best explained as 'a chef's comfort food.' Our signature cocktails are made with the south's best shines and whiskeys. Looking for an amazing local beer, we have plenty to choose from.
