It’s been a busy year for Music City. Until now, Nashville only had one five-star hotel – the Hermitage – but a number of new hotel openings in 2021 and beyond are going to recast the city as a major new hub for luxury travel. Juliette Barnes would definitely approve!
Experience the all-new Hermitage Hotel (Autumn 2021)
The historic Hermitage Hotel is taking refinement to the next level, as it revamps its food service with a world-renowned chef and restaurant. Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten — who has launched 39 acclaimed restaurants in New York City, Paris, Shanghai and elsewhere — will make his first foray into the American South when he takes over the hotel’s Capitol Grille this autumn. The restaurant will offer high-end cuisine that will include Vongerichten’s signature plant-based dishes as well as pizza from wood-fired ovens. The Oak Bar, which began as a “private gentleman’s club” and boasted a 208-bottle bourbon selection, billed as one of the largest such collections in Nashville, is also due to receive a revamp; and finally, a new, pink marble ladies room will be implemented, designed to be a counterpart to the hotel’s famed art deco men’s restroom and guaranteed to be a hotspot for the perfect Instagram.
