On our new series Gatekeepers, host Justin Lizama is traveling across the country to meet up with these individuals and experience their city on a local’s level. First stop: Nashville, Tennessee, where local host/personality Paxton Elrod is on a mission to prove to Justin no matter how popular Nashville becomes as a tourist destination, it’s still a small town city with a southern charm. Here are the best places to eat, drink and visit on your trip to Nashville.

In every city there’s someone who’s connected, who knows where to go on a slow Monday night and can get a table anywhere they want on a Friday – in every city there’s a Gatekeeper. In this Thrillist travel show, we’re sending our host across the country to meet up with these Gatekeepers and experience first hand everything you should make sure to do/eat/drink, one city at a time.
