  • art galleries upstairs, great food downstairs
  • One of the best places to grab lunch downtown and one of the oldest shopping malls in America. Jumbos sushi is great
  • Great historic area in downtown. Grab a bite (Manny's!) or go upstairs for the gallery
  • Only open during certain times. Was kinda scary walking thru it in the afternoon around 3ish, but there was a cop on both ends..felt safer!
  • The bathrooms are upstairs and closest to 5th.
  • Check out the The Peanut Shop. This was one of the original Planters Peanut Stores in the country. They still have Planters Peanut Memorabilia and the store itself will leave you feeling nostalgic.
  • Get there at eleven to avoid lunch crowd
  • Not exactly a "hidden gem"; more like an old, dusty mall with shady characters during non-lunch hours.
  • In Nashville, you have to be 18 to play pinball. Seriously.
  • Plenty of lunch selection during the working day but everything closes by late afternoon and weekends.
  • Don't feed the birds!
  • Great to visit during 1st Saturday each month for Nashville Arts Tour. And it's free!!:)
  • Phillyman's have great cheesesteaks.
  • This is a good place to spend a couple of hours. The homemade pralines are delicious.
