Humans often wonder how the other half lives, leading to left brain/right brain espionage and 3 a.m. heart-to-hearts between feet. Get acquainted with another world with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get one ticket to the Nashville Downtown Partnership’s Live It Up! Downtown Home Tour (a $10 value), running from noon to 6 p.m. April 17.
The annual Downtown Home Tour provides a rare peek into Nashville’s most impressive urban living abodes. Boasting striking panoramic views, impeccably decorated interiors, and façades that peel back to reveal contents within, the self-guided tour offers a glimpse of high-society living. Observe opulence with a glance inside the art-deco-decorated Kress building; the pool on the roof of the Viridian; and seven other eclectic edifices in the Downtown Core, Rolling Mill Hill, SoBro, and Gulch neighborhoods. Ticketholders also enjoy free nearby parking, shuttle services, and the freedom to loudly proclaim tour facts of questionable accuracy.
Nashville Downtown Partnership
Founded with the goal of transforming downtown Nashville into a compelling, culturally rich urban center, Nashville Downtown Partnership fosters a sense of community via fun-filled initiatives that showcase the city’s finest offerings, such as the annual Downtown Home Tour. Participants on the tour get a chance to see a variety of chic private spaces, ogling unique floor plans with an emphasis on ultramodern design that whisk guests into the future without the disheveled hairdos inherent with leaps through the time-space continuum. The Partnership creates such interactive experiences to help introduce locals to the benefits of living in the center of Music City, such as having easy access to its hundreds of restaurants as well as sports and entertainment venues.
