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.

Great experience! The Burrata was excellent! Our server was knowledgeable and fun! He was really great at his job. The restaurant was a really nice place and had a cool vibe. Music was slightly too loud but nothing in comparison to some of the other places around the Broadway area. We will definitely be returning.

Dined here with friends from out of the country. The ladies had the Braised Short Ribs with mashed potatoes for their main and the men had the 16 oz. Prime Ribeye with sides of creamed spinach and fries respectively. There was also a shrimp cocktail and an order of the sticky garlic ribs as appetizers which the couples shared. For drinks it was gin & tonic, a Paper Plate and a bottle of wine. Everything was great and we had the most wonderful server, “Hope”. My wife and I are local in Nashville and will most definitely return. We definitely recommend this location.

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.

This is the 'Midtown' location at 1921 Broadway.

Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value. We offer Happy Hour every day of the week at Blue Sushi Sake Grill!
