The cocktail scene in Nashville, Tennessee is pretty impressive with The Catbird Seat and Rolf and Daughters heading my list and restaurants like City House a must stop too.

Nice to drink Tennessee Whiskey in Tennessee

Without a doubt, though, if you ever find yourself down south (as I did this past weekend), the essential bar is Santa's Pub.

Located inside a trailer off Highway 81 and Brandsford Ave., open until 3am nightly, bottles and cans of beer only, this place is a spectacular dive (even if the website seems polished). PBR is $1.50, High Life is $2.00 and come ice cold out of a 1980s Sears white laminate fridge served by Santa himself- ok, a bad ass Tennessee old timer who looks the part but with southern hospitality. There's no specialty ice, bitters, booze even. Oh, but there is Karaoke, I felt like I was in some movie- great sound, and I'm telling you voices that would make Dolly herself proud. Smoking is still allowed, the old broken down 60s cigarette machine continues to seem right at home.
The point is, sometimes a high end drink is satisfying, so too is a cold can of beer. You can't fake a bar like this- or have a better time.
