Great Restaurants

Nashville has risen to become a dynamic city that incorporates its country music heritage with forward-looking cuisine. On this trip, guests will experience what has made this city such a hot destination. Pairing Southern flavor with contemporary cuisine makes for a winning combination.

On this culinary insights tour we get to visit many of these newer hot spots and get to learn from the chefs what makes Nashville such a desirable destination.

Unique Excursions

On every Rascal + Thorn tour we explore what makes a city tick. Our excursions in Nashville will include a music studio tour, a distillery visit and a Bluegrass pig roast at Corsair.

We also include other cultural and historical visits to round out the experience of the city.

The Team

Rascal + Thorn is working closely with the team at Bastion and Chef Josh Habiger to design a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Nashville. Interaction with the chefs is a key component to our tours and makes for a truly special time for all.
