ABOUT BERRY HILL
Though it is less than one square mile in area, Berry Hill has a big personality. Here you’ll find tree-lined streets dotted with quaint cottages, small parks with playgrounds, and one of a kind shops and restaurants. Murals cover the fences and brick walls of some of the businesses, giving the neighborhood a unique creative atmosphere.
Eclectic stores fill former homes from the 1940’s and are separated by well-known restaurants such as Monell’s and the Pfunky Griddle. The once industrial area is now thriving with recording studios, music publishers, and one of a kind businesses, growing the under 1,000-resident city to nearly 7,000 during business hours.
For an evening of fine dining, make a reservation at Sinema which is housed in the once Melrose Theater and pays homage to its theatrical past in its decor. For more casual bites, there is an endless variety to choose from.
In terms of housing, residents have options that range from one-story bungalows to high-rise luxury condominiums with all the amenities. The neighborhood’s proximity to other incredible communities, as well as downtown Nashville, make it the perfect place for both Nashville natives and newcomers to settle. Its small-town charm will welcome you immediately.
Monells is a true Southern staple. Enjoy plates piled high with all the classics: fried chicken, green beans, cheese grits, biscuits and gravy, and more! Their tagline is, “Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends.” They truly live this out as they sit all parties together at communal tables.
