If quarantine has you craving adventure, you’re not alone. Sure, we love virtual trips to Disney, but that doesn’t curb our travel bug. Fortunately, there are plenty of great things (people, places and picnics) to look forward to after quarantine. Enter White Limozeen!
This new rooftop bar in Nashville is inspired by our favorite country singer—Dolly Parton—and brings together all things luxurious and casual. Here’s a sneak peek!
No Limousine Required
Nashville is known for hot spots, and this may be the hottest one yet. White Limozeen sits atop the Graduate Hotel, and it’s a rosy homage to Dolly Parton, her 1989 song “White Limozeen” and her album of the same name. Everything is decked out in pink and white, from the scalloped umbrellas to the seating—even the flower beds are overflowing with pink and white flora!

Kinda fancy-ish, kinda classy-ish. Your new escape, coming to Graduate Nashville this July.
The bar also features a 3-foot deep “Governor’s Pool” and the pièce de résistance—a wraparound bar surrounded by pink and white chairs where you can order everything from oysters to specialty cocktails.

You’re right, dreams do come true.
Country stars have already turned up at White Limozeen to pose with the sculpture of Dolly Parton made entirely out of pink chicken wire. Country sweetheart Maren Morris couldn’t help but enjoy a day out at White Limozeen:

How to Make a Reservation
If you’re looking to head out for some R&R during quarantine, you can put your reservation in on Rezy. White Limozeen is following the same health guidelines as Graduate Hotels, a program made in partnership with medical professionals to ensure the safest getaway possible.
You’ll have to socially distance, of course—and don’t forget to pack your face mask.
