1. Tin Angel

The circular brick fireplace at Tin Angel has you feeling the heat the moment you step through the door. Situated between the hostess stand and bar, it has a ledge for sitting while you wait, or you can watch its flames dance while taking a warm nip of bourbon. The perfect spot for a Valentines drink, Tin Angel offers up different specials each year.

2. Blackstone Restaurant and Brewery

It’s like your great uncle’s study in Ireland, only it’s in Nashville. Located in a nook-like room toward the back of the restaurant, this fireplace anchors a bookshelf stocked with brewing manuals and novels. Kick back on a sofa or armchair and rest your pint of stout on a weathered coffee table. This is the perfect Nashville spot for a proposal or, on the lighter side of things, a pre-dinner toast!

3. City Lights Getaway

The top hotel pick for this in-town special is Loews, get a reservation early and make sure you ask for an upgrade to a suite on arrival, the views are romantic and the upgrade price is worth every penny. They run a special rate for Valentine’s Day every year, this can include every thing from the champagne, right down to the chocolates on the pillow! There are also several other romantic Nashville hotels in the area, which include Union Station, The Hermitage Hotel, and the Renaissance.

The Grand Elegance one-stop Valentines date is at the Opryland hotel, where you will find everything you need to have a romantic weekend at one place.

Strolling through the conservatories is romantic anytime of year but especially nice on Valentine’s Day, you might even catch a wedding or two in progress.
