During our stay in Nashville, we stopped into L.A. Jackson, the Thompson Hotel’s snazzy rooftop bar, to take in the views of Nashville’s skyline at night and grab an after-dinner drink. Located on the top floor of the Thompson Hotel in the up-and-coming “Gulch” neighborhood of Nashville, this is one of the hot spots for nightlife and the best rooftop bar in Nashville right now.
Depending on the weather, you can opt to sit inside or on their open patio. One of our favorite cocktails we tried was the World’s Fair, made with sloe gin and apple bitters, which reminded us of a fun take on a sangria. Thankfully our fantastic bartender was kind enough to share the recipe, so now you can make it at home too! Next time you visit Nashville, make sure you stop in for a cocktail or a homemade ice cream sandwich.
- Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
- Shake until well chilled, and then strain over crushed ice.
- Garnish with an orange slice.
