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 208-bottle Bourbon Library, one of the largest collection of bourbons in Nashville.

While our kitchen undergoes construction, all dining and bar service will be offered in our elegant lobby. Please join us to sip a signature cocktail or selection from Oak Bar’s extensive bourbon library and enjoy our Capitol Grille menu against a backdrop of stunning Beaux Arts architecture. We look forward to welcoming you with The Hermitage Hotel’s renowned warm and attentive service
