Karen Elson's Guide To Nashville

Model and singer-songwriter Karen Elson reveals her favorite places to dress up, tune in and dine out in Music City.

The Stone Fox

You can’t visit the city and not see live music. To catch a wonderful set, check out The Stone Fox on Sunday—country-folk singer-songwriter Chris Scruggs plays every week. 712 51st Ave. N., 615-953-1811

The Patterson House

For cocktails, head to The Patterson House and order the Juliet and Romeo—it’s my go-to drink! 1711 Division St., 615-636-7724

Rolf And Daughters

When friends are in town I always take them to Rolf and Daughters for a delicious meal. It doesn’t matter what you get … it’s all great. 700 Taylor St., 615-866-9897, http://rolfanddaughters.com/

Pierce & Company

The best place for home decor items is Pierce & Company. They make a house feel functional and comfortable—yet glamorous at the same time. 2700 Belmont Blvd., 615-385-5055

Arrow & Anchor Antiques

Score unique jewelry like one-of-a-kind signet rings and turquoise stones at Arrow & Anchor Antiques. arrowand​anchorantiques.com

Ola Mai

One local label I’m really into is Ola Mai. Designed and made in Nashville by Leslie Stephens, the line is full of perfectly tailored, retro-inspired dresses. cargocollective.com/olamaihandmade

Hip Zipper and Savant Vintage

Scour more vintage gems at Hip Zipper and Savant Vintage. Both are packed to the brim with pieces from all decades. 1008 Forrest Ave., 615-228-1942; 2302 12th Ave. S., 615-385-0856

High Class Hillbilly

My favorite area to shop is East Nashville. I always stop in Nikki Lane’s store, High Class Hillbilly. She specializes in rare clothes and accessories that you won’t see in other shops. highclasshillbilly​.bigcartel.com
