Have you ever been to a bar that has no menu? Sounds absurd, right? Well, last week I visited a bar with no menus and for someone who is incredibly indecisive, this was really nice for a change.
A good friend said she wanted to have a swanky Friday night and try somewhere new, and luckily, there are always new restaurants and bars in Nashville, so I'm typically down for the adventure. I asked her where she wanted to go and she suggested Attaboy over in East Nashville.
Attaboy originally hails from New York City so you know it's going to be good. When we arrived, we saw a line forming at the door, but then a waiter would come and grab a few people at a time. This had me kind of scratching my head in confusion. Then I realized Attaboy is a speakeasy. If you've never been to a speakeasy, it has this underground "hush hush" feel to it. You knock gently when your group gets to the door and they only take a few people in at a time. Places like this make me so happy because I feel like I'm invited to experience something fun and unique.
The line moved surprisingly fast and before we knew it we were seated in a cute little room that was dimly lit with candles. Our waitress came in and announced that there was no menu and she would be putting drinks together based on of our likes and dislikes. YES! I LOVE this. Every drink is a flat rate (about $14) which, in my opinion, is not too shabby for the service and drinks you receive. Also, this is the typical cost of a cocktail in Nashville. We each went around and shared what our favorite spirit is and the flavors we prefer. I typically like a Manhattan so the waitress made a cocktail that was a spin off and it was delicious!
The ambience was perfect, the drinks were smooth and the service was incredible. I will happily go back!
I'm so glad that Nashville is getting more speakeasy type bars because they are my fav! So, if you are ever in the area be sure to check it out! Dress up, think about what your favorite flavors are and enjoy what they come up with for you!
