Arcade Nashville

Arcade Nashville

Sometimes I bring my lunch. Most times I don't. I generally find myself sniffing around the Arcade, formerly known as the Overton Alley. It was built in 1903 and is one of the last remaining "arcades" of its kind around the US. They have lunch places in the Arcade, the post office, a cobbler, a seamstress, Walgreens, and a secret alley off it that leads to Brandon's or the nearby 417 Union.

I love the Arcade. I go there sometimes even when I don't have a reason. I walk by and get sucked in. Someone told me that they were only allowed to have type of restaurant/shop of one kind at a time in the alley, to prevent competition in the same genre.
