    I'm interviewing for a job in Nashville and am curious to know what the city and its men are like... I'm currently in Cincinnati... and doubt that Nashville could be any worse??

    As a former resident of Nashville, it is one of my fav city. It has a decent gay night life on Church street where the majority of the businesses there cater toward gay clients. It is depending on what you consider as fun. East Nashville across the river is another great place to visit some gay friendly bars and restaurants. Have fun!!

    Nashville is pretty swanky, I will say that. Though I haven't been to big cities such as New York, or L.A, Nashville passes the bar on overall fun for me. Downtown Nashville has the bars, clubs, restaurants, in which most are pretty much gay-friendly. East Nashville is more hip, trendy, and artistic. Old townhomes have been remodeled and rebuilt. Some are actually homes, while other have been turned into art galleries. West Nashville is more upscale, with grand apartments, luxury brand shops, high-end malls.

    The overall gay life isn't as grand as bigger cities, but that's not to say that it sin't silent. Nashville has a few gay newspapers that can be found, such as OutandAbout. There's gar bars, gay-friendly bars, gay-friendly restaurants, a gay bookstore, and Nashville even has it's own Pride festival. icon_smile.gif

    Hope this helps!

    Well you pretty much summed it all up! I am a northern transplant from OH and now consider Nashville my real home. If I ever leave it is the only place I would return to live again!

    I have my disagreements with the gay bars although the three main ones are some of the best. It is like many other smaller cities in that everyone is only about 2 degrees away from knowing each other and that gets annoying. The type of men here are not really my preference but overall everyone is very approachable. I also think the city as a whole is more accepting of gays than many other cities in the South.

    Anyways come and visit and check it out yourself!
