East Nashville’s Best Bars: This unique watering hole doesn’t hold a large crowd. That makes it perfect for weeknight beers, happy hour drinks, and weekend night hangouts. The decor is interesting and will keep you occupied if your party starts to get bored. Look for skulls and cross bones, funny quotes, photos of celebrities, and walls lined with wine corks. If you’re craving a drink during the day, you’ll find plenty of like-minded folks hanging out on the deck at Red Door East. Red Door has a laid-back atmosphere, and usually carries a number of American beers in bottles and on top. The best part is, the beer’s always ice cold.
