The Oldest Bar In Tennessee Has A Fascinating History

Take a stroll through Nashville’s Centennial park, and you will find some truly fascinating history. The Parthenon dominates the landscape, a full-scale replica of the original in Greece that has stood in the park for 120 years. But most people don’t know that on the edge of the park is a very unique piece of Tennessee history: the state’s oldest bar. Operating even through the Prohibition (illegally, of course), Springwater has stood the test of time and has become established as one of the best dive bars in not only Nashville, but also the state of Tennessee. Here’s what makes this bar so very special.
