A few weekends ago a friend and I went for a walk in the 12 South area. It’s a growing area in Nashville and very trendy.
Shops in the area are owned by Holly Williams and Reese Witherspoon. There is even a cupcake ATM. Hip restaurants are popping up all over the area. Long lines to get donuts at Five Daughters, the cupcake ATM, or the Food trucks of the day.
You can go buy a custom, but expensive, pair of jeans at Imogene + Willie. Hop into Draper James for a selection of things that Reese Witherspoon likes. One of my favorite shops White’s Mercantile, owned and curated by Holly Williams (yes, the granddaughter of Hank Williams), I could look for hours at all the awesome goodies. White’s Mercantile is housed in an old gas station – which only adds to it’s charm.
If you are looking for new Nashville then head to 12 South and enjoy. Don’t forget to look for some great graffiti. Also one of the famous ‘I Believe in Nashville’ mural.
