South of Broadway (SoBro) is adjacent to Downtown Nashville and the Gulch and located inside the interstate loop. The Cumberland River runs along SoBro’s eastern border and 8th Avenue South borders it on the west.
SoBro, formerly one of Nashville’s older industrial areas, has seen tremendous revitalization in recent years, due in large part to the construction of Nashville’s beautiful convention center, the Music City Center, which was completed in 2013, and all the hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues that followed. The primary residential options in this area now consist of high-rise condominiums and apartment communities, with new developments in the works.
Some of Nashville’s most impressive buildings, Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and Bridgestone Arena, also call SoBro home and are situated near the base of Nashville’s Music Mile, which runs up Demonbreun Street from the riverfront to the Music Row Roundabout. Another recent addition to SoBro is the state-of-the-art Ascend Amphitheater and West Riverfront Park, which includes walking paths, an 11-station fitness circuit, and a dog park. In addition to the music venues and green space, SoBro has a wealth of dining and nightlife options.
