WHAT TO DO
THE ESCAPE GAME

Groups have one hour to crack clues and solve several puzzles together in order to escape the game. With seven different games to choose from, any group can find one that they will enjoy. Depending on the chosen game, teams can vary in size from two to twelve players. The Escape Game Nashville suggests booking your game in advance online in order to get your first choice.
THE SUTLER SALOON
The Sulter Saloon is the best spot in Berry Hill to listen to live music. With live shows nearly every night, the Sutler is always a fun place to stop by, grab a bite to eat, and listen to the wide variety of musical talent in Berry Hill. This venue opened its doors in 1976 and has hosted several major music icons: Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, and Johnny Cash, just to name a few. The Sutler was reimaged in 2014 and since then has had Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, and several other current country stars perform on its stage. Any music lover must check this scene out when in the Berry Hill neighborhood.
