Oak BarOne of Nashville's Best Bars

Located adjacent to the Capitol Grille, The Hermitage Hotel's world-famous Oak Bar was originally opened as a private gentleman's club in 1910. Its illustrious history began during the onset of Tennessee’s prohibition era, and the bar achieved notoriety and fame when it was caught serving teapots filled with bourbon. Today, the Oak Bar is known for its extensive 180-bottle Bourbon Library, the largest collection of bourbons in Nashville.
