Where To Drink Saturday Night? (The Patterson House, Nashville)

Located in an historic former residence at the corner of 17th Avenue South and Division Street in Midtown, The Patterson House offers a 30-stool, 68-foot-long bar, a drinking table that allows guests a perfect view from which to enjoy in the precision necessary to craft sophisticated libations. Dark wood and leather banquettes provide intimacy for an alternative. Featuring 50 cocktails poured over eight types of twice-filtered ice, the drinks menu was masterminded by Toby Maloney and Jason Cott of New York-based Alchemy Consulting, the firm behind Bradstreet Craftshouse in Minneapolis and The Violet Hour in Chicago. The menu is divided between classic cocktails and signature creations.

The Patterson House moniker unfolded quite naturally, as the place is named in honor of former Tennessee Gov. Malcolm R. Patterson, who vetoed the return of statewide prohibition in 1909. The governor contended prohibition should be decided at the local level rather than by the state. The Legislature overruled Patterson’s veto.
