Henley Nashville: A Modern American Brasserie
Henley is Nashville's modern American brasserie, operating under the creative culinary leadership of James Beard award-winning Executive Chef RJ Cooper. The concept opened a few months back on the ground floor of the Kimpton Aertson Hotel in midtown, and boasts a space with an approachable mix of decor from yesteryear with some of today's fun, contemporary flair. Bette Davis' eyes watch you from above the liquor stocked behind the bar, amid pops of yellow, and mixed textures throughout. Enjoy a cozy private dining area in the back named 'The Snooker', or when weather allows, there's also a small patio outside with seating for about 30 guests.
The stellar bar program at Henley is piloted by Head Bartender Jon Howard, with a focus on southern spirits, including plenty of bourbon/whiskey based cocktails.
