Benefits of Working in the Five Points Area of Nashville

Food in the Five Points

Five Points in Nashville is home to some of the best eateries the city has to offer. Some of Nashville’s most sought-after tables are located on Woodland Street in the Five Points. Margot Cafe & Bar has been featured in write-ups from the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Time Magazine as one of Nashville’s best restaurants. With simple and elegant dishes using locally sourced, natural ingredients, you’re sure to have a memorable culinary experience at Margot. Head over to Boston Commons for some New England-style elevated pub fare. Expect high-quality seafood, and save room for their signature Boston cream pie. Don’t forget to take a look at the Nashville Strong mural on their wall, a reminder of the community’s incredible response to the destructive tornado that impacted the neighborhood just 3 years ago.

Interested in some quicker street fare? No problem! Restaurants in Nashville’s Five Points are diverse in their offerings. Walk up to the outdoor slice window at Five Points Pizza for a quick slice of Nashville’s best pizza. Head inside for a more traditional sit-down experience and know that no matter what, you aren’t leaving hungry. Burgers are synonymous with quick eats, and nobody does it better in Five Points than Burger & Company. Located among the Five Points Alley Shops, this burger needs to be experienced to be believed. Stop in and grab their signature Bag o’ Burgers, the perfect team lunch for you and 4 friends.

Working at Center 615

Where is the Five Points neighborhood in Nashville? Definitions of each of Nashville’s neighborhoods’ ‘borders’ are a bit lax here, but its center is at the intersection of Woodland Street, Clearview Avenue, and North 11th Street. The surrounding area encompasses the Five Points neighborhood, and it can extend as far as each person likes. Since Nashville is already separated into North, South, East, West, and Downtown, it’s not an exact science.

  1. We have recently moved to Middle TN and saw a post on fb about a St. Patrick’s day parade in the Five Point area, but have not been able to find anything else about it. Can you please give me more information about the parade?
