If you’re looking for an elegant wedding location near Brentwood, look no farther than the Nashville City Club in downtown Nashville.
We attended an evening wedding reception there last weekend.
The only thing more stunning than the hors d’oeuvres was the brilliant skyline through the Nashville City Club’s floor to ceiling windows.
The wedding was held at the Downtown Presbyterian Church, a stately historic building with an Egyptian motif.
Guests could walk from the church to the SunTrust Plaza.

The Nashville City Club sits at the very top floor.
As you walk through the Nashville City Club’s foyer, you face a grand piano with a backdrop of the black night sky beyond. Our friend’s florist decorated the top of the piano with family wedding photos, pillar candles, and rose petals.
To the left is a cozy library room, complete with fireplace and bookshelves. The Nashville City Club set tables among the sofas. The florist lined the mantel with more pillar candles and greenery.
To the right of the piano is a dance floor, carving station, and hors d’oeuvres buffet. Round tables covered in crisp beige linen dot the perimeter of the room. Everywhere you look, the night sky beckons.
The Nashville City Club offers a contemporary backdrop for almost any style wedding reception. I like that the bride can keep the flowers to a minimum. What could compete with that view?
What About The Food At The Nashville City Club?
We thought the food at the wedding reception was great. Here are a few of things we sampled:
- Fork-tender rosemary prime rib with hot rolls
- A crudite station with various fruits, vegetables, and sauces
- Spicy crab cakes
- Chicken Wellington that everyone raved about
- Artichoke dip with toasted chips
a mashed potato martini bar!
WHAT? This unusual station was the talk of the reception. Guests could fill martini glasses with mashed potatoes and top them–not unlike an ice cream sundae–with cheese, bacon, sour cream and cherry tomatoes.
Talk about a conversation piece!
We certainly enjoyed this reception at Nashville’s City Club. Here’s hoping that our experience there will help another bride who’s planning an elegant evening on top of the town!
