A Drinking Guide to Nashville's Etch

What to drink at Etch

When dining out, you're often faced with a conundrum: a restaurant with an impressive menu, paired with a killer drink menu? Downtown Nasvhille's Etch restaurant takes on both challenges, gladly. After all, executive chef Deb Paquette did help create the first-ever Tennessee sipping cream. 

With an impressive wine list with full bottle and by-the-glass options, a collection of high gravity beers including local drafts, and a bevy of hand-crafted signature cocktails, Etch brings traditional and cutting edge beverage options to the SoBro neighborhood. And the atmosphere's not too shabby, either: an intimate bar area with high-back stools and a swanky booth serves as an option for happy hour before a hockey game or pre-symphony drinks within walking distance of the big event.

Suggested cocktails ($6 during happy hour, $9.50 otherwise) to feature include classic drinks like a French 75 with Hendrick's gin, champagne, lemon and chartreuse.  Another signature cocktail, the Don, comes with Black Maple Bill bourbon, vermouth, Amaro averna, and Angostura bitters. The drink menu's newest offerings include the Hemingway, with Prichard's crystal rum, maraschino cherry, lime and simple syrup. On the beer list, local beers include Yazoo Hefeweizen, Jackalope Thunder Ann Pale Ale and Turtle Anarchy Portly Stout.
