"The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club, a cozy cocktail concept from Bryan Rushton and Andrew Cook, officially opened in East Nashville on September 28, 2017. The Fox is located at 2905B Gallatin Pike behind Nicoletto’s Italian Kitchen. Nashville Guru stopped by to get a look at the Art Deco design and a taste of the carefully crafted cocktail menu created by Will Benedetto. The space features a main bar, three high-top tables, several booths, and a sitting area for two by the front door. The design and build were done by 1767 Designs, showcasing their use of reclaimed wood from Nashville-area houses and buildings. Drive down the alley beside Nicoletto’s Italian Kitchen — if you see the large fox mural created by Brian Wooden, you know you’re on the right path. The bar is located around back, below The Bowery Vault. Bartender Nick Dolan displays the highlights of the spirit-focused beverage program, including the Lemon Verbena Swizzle and the Pecan Pie-Tai. If liquor drinks aren’t your thing, The Fox also serves draft wines, beer, cider, and non-alcoholic beverages. The food menu features bites like summer squash tartine, roasted chickpeas, and charcuterie. Vegans will be happy to see plant-based meats and cheeses on the list, too."
