Rare Bird

Whether you’re celebrating a hard day’s work or putting the finishing touches on a long day of play, when you’re in the mood for something different there’s only one place to head: to the roof. Draft cocktails and uncaged spirits abound in this colorful airborne bar scene overlooking downtown Nashville.



Skip the Line this Spring. Insiders Tip: Before you make your way to Rare Bird for a drink with a view, head to Makeready L&L for a bite and receive our coveted Fly Pass. Our Fly Pass allows our guests who dine on our exceptional tavern fare in Makeready L&L to skip the line at Rare Bird for expedited entry.



Get above the everyday runaround, take in a view, a cocktail, and tell a tall tale or two at Rare Bird’s Picnic in the Birds Nest. Uncommon picnic experiences for the wild and free now available for a limited time through our partnership with PICNIC POPUP Nashville. Gather your friends, spread your wings and fly the coop.
