A famously charming area, Hillsboro Village is a hip Nashville neighborhood that connects several vibrant parts of the city. Home to a variety of appealing restaurants, bars and boutiques in every price point – Hillsboro Village has been evolving at a rapid pace over the past few years. However, it’s still well-known for its landmarks (and their modern uses) and remains endearing for its walkability.
Enjoy coffee and a bite at the well-loved Fido coffee shop (but don’t count on Wi-Fi unless those Christmas lights over the door are lit). Hot and Cold, it’s sister store, is conveniently located next door in case of coffee emergency when Fido’s line is a little to long, and your patience a little to short. Incredible food and drinks can be found at Jackson’s (a standard), with sushi, Italian and chicken just across the street on Belcourt Ave. If it’s drinks for a night out with friends that you seek, don’t miss Sam’s Sports Bar. And, if you’re willing to get a little smoky, take a dive into Village Tavern – a friendly bar with a jukebox, darts and table Galaga. Ice cream options have expanded recently, with the popular parlor Jeni’s opening along the street in addition to Sweet Cicis on the opposite corner. No discussion of grabbing a bite in Hillsboro Village would be complete without a mention of The Pancake Pantry. Beware of the long line, but don’t let it deter you. Consider a pre-game with a small-bite from Provence Bakery and Cafe (a well-deserved lunch spot in it’s own right), and then wander over to wait for a delicious breakfast.
The shopping in Hillsboro Village is incredibly well curated and diverse for such a quaint area. Posh, offering upscale clothing and a generous sale room that spans almost the entire back-half of the store, and Pangea, an eclectic boutique boasting housewares and clothing, have bordered Belcourt Avenue for ages. New boutiques have moved into the area over the past few years, make sure to explore.
Hillsboro Village is a neighborhood of landmarks both unofficial and official. For any child of Nashville, or their parents, Fannie Mae Dees Park (more commonly known as Dragon Park) is a well- loved destination. A playground is available, but most visitors don’t get that far because there’s a giant, larger than life mosaic dragon decorated by local Nashville artists that draws all the attention. Just down the street from Dragon Park, independent movie goers can get their fix at the Belcourt Theatre (a space that doubles as a live music venue). Even those who don’t consider themselves movie-buffs will love Nashville’s Independent Theatre’s consistently top-notch selections.
If you want to live in Hillsboro Village, then you’ll most likely be selecting from condos.
