For those that enjoy bourbon and beer, Pour House is just the place with 139 bourbon selections, 28 beers on tap, and over 70 bottled beers. It’s not too hard to see where this locally owned restaurant gets its name! Located in the Gulch and SoBro area, Pour House is an affordable, casual hangout.

The owners have made the restaurant prohibition themed making bourbon a common ingredient in most of the items. The following pledge from Pour House’s website sums the menu up well:


BURGERS:  Fresh Ground, In House daily.  You deserve breathtaking burgers that are fresh, ground from whole chucks, never frozen, simple and good.

BOURBON:  With over 138 different Bourbon and Whiskey, you deserve one of the finest and widest selections of boutique bourbons available in Nashville.

BREWS:  Top rated American Craft Beers are selected to ensure that you have the opportunity to experience some of the Region’s top rated beers, with a staff that can guide you through the journey.  Enjoy our 28 craft beers on tap daily.

The menu is simple but full of flavor. They stick to basic appetizers like fried pickles, wings, and potato skins. There are a few salads (Caesar, Chili Taco, Buffalo Chicken, and Southwestern Chicken) and three entrees (Pulled Pork, Pork Chops, and Bourbon Chicken) but the main draw are the twelve burgers and six mini burgers. Fried egg, bacon, fried green tomato, an onion ring, and pimento cheese are on the unique Big South Burger.

Other burger options include the Chili Cheese (jalapenos, pepper jack, red onions, tomato, and house made chili) and the Mushroom Gouda (sautéed mushrooms, bourbon onions, arugula, tomato, and truffle mayo). Their burgers are certainly fresh and made of three cuts: shoulder, top round, and brisket. All burgers come with the choice of one side.

The atmosphere is casual and welcoming. Most of their decorations are from local Nashville artists and they certainly sport their garage doors well. The rooftop patio and bar is fully equipped with a misting system to cool guests off during these hot summer months. The skyline view from the patio is also fantastic.

For a relaxed, affordable meal and drink visit the Pour House for a Uniquely Nashville experience.

Members Of The “Drinking Class” Celebrate No. 1 In Nashville | Troy Stephenson • June 3, 2015

Nashville’s The Pour House was a packed house yesterday (June 3), as BMI and ASCAP co-hosted a No. 1 celebration for the song “Drinking Class,” performed by Lee Brice.

The song was penned by BMI songwriters David Frazier and Ed Hill, and ASCAP songwriter Josh Kear. After writing together for 15 years, it is their first shared No. 1. It was noted that this is Frazier’s first overall No. 1, so BMI’s Bradley Collins presented him with a BMI guitar to commemorate the milestone.

“Drinking Class” marks Brice’s fifth No. 1 as an artist. He also produced the song along with Kyle Jacobs and Matt McClure.

During the celebration, Big Yellow Dog’s Danni O’Neill and Amylase’s Whit Jeffords offered their congratulations, as did representatives from the CMA and CRB.

Curb Records founder Mike Curb spoke on behalf of his label. “In all my years in this business, I’ve never met someone that is the real deal more than Lee Brice,” said Curb.

Ron Cox of Avenue Bank announced a donation on behalf of the songwriters to The Nashville Rescue Mission.

Ed Hill has been in the music scene since the 1970s and was the 2006 BMI Songwriter of the Year. “I don’t take one second for granted,” said Hill. “I’m very proud to be a part of this record.”

David Frazier made sure he thanked everyone that supported him throughout his career. “I’m a late bloomer, but I’m thankful to be celebrating my first No. 1.”

ASCAP’s Mike Sistad took to the stage to salute Josh Kear. Sistad said that “Drinking Class” marks the eleventh No. 1 song for Kear, who was the 2013 ASCAP Songwriter of the Year and is a 4-time Grammy winner. As Kear spoke, he made a point to thank the record label. “To the Curb promotion staff. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Lee Brice takes pride in being a songwriter, but also gave credit to the songwriting community for their efforts. “It all starts with a song. And as a songwriter, I know what it takes to get up every day and go to work. To the writers of this song, thank you.” Lee continued, “To the producers, thank you for all the time you put it into this project.”

Country singer Jason Aldean celebrated the success of his latest number one song at Nashville’s Pour House Wednesday.

“When She Says Baby,” from Aldean’s 2012 album “Night Train,” was written by Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip.

The pair said Tom Petty’s popular song “Here Comes My Girl” inspired their tune.

“I said, ‘Man we need to write a country version of a guy who’s had a bad day at work or whatever and he comes home and his girl, all she has to do is say baby and all the bad things go away,'” Atkins said.

Akins and Hayslip, who grew up together, also wrote Blake Shelton’s number one song from 2011, “Honeybee.”

Aldean is set to head out on tour next month. He is also expected to release a new album later this year

Seriously, where is all this reclaimed barnwood coming from? It’s everywhere, from high-end to low-brow establishments, employed as a subtle architectural expression of the sustainability zeitgeist.

The latest enterprise to wrap itself in a splintery cloak of weathered wood is Pour House Burgers, Bourbons and Brews, the ambitious project of Continue reading “Pour House brings a rich roster of bourbons and burgers to Eighth Avenue – Whiskey for My Men(u)”
