There’s No Doubt You’ll Dine In Style At Virgin’s Nashville Hotel

For Virgin Hotels’ third U.S. outpost and one of Nashville’s newest boutique properties, the brand’s VP of Design, Teddy Mayer, hoped to telegraph a carefree, approachable spirit. So, he tapped a dream team of design pros—NYC-based interdisciplinary designer Mark Zeff, along with local talents Hastings Architecture & Design, Blur Workshop and Hannah Crowell—to mastermind its flagship dining-and-imbibing concept.

Far exceeding the footprint of its Dallas counterpart and proffering glittering city views, the breezy terrace of Nashville’s Commons Club is laid with locally sourced flagstone, shrouded by local grasses and evergreens, and anchored by a dramatic two-sided bar. Inside, black-painted brick and natural oak bring an industrial vibe to voluminous interiors while upholstery choices keep the overall effect plush, especially in concert with the local artworks, books and objects hand-selected by Crowell.
