Smoking Oasis

The Nations is Nashville’s fastest-growing neighborhood–welcoming families, professionals, and corporations to all live harmoniously among beautifully restored factories and warehouses–showcasing small-batch hospitality brands and luxury retailers. So when Carey Bringle (best known as Peg Leg Porker), was scouting locations for his next hit bbq joint–a run-down gas station in the Nations was the perfect fit. The Armstrong team worked closely with Bringle and his team to design a modern yet nostalgic restaurant that could provide all the flavor and ambiance you could ask for in a neighborhood bbq spot. The original fuel pumps begged to become the bar and with the added pet-friendly turf and jumbotrons, where else would you want to watch the games?
