12 South is one of the most instagrammable neighborhoods of Nashville. The adorable storefronts are natural backgrounds for selfies and many tourists and bloggers  line the street regularly in various floppy hats to pose in front of the cute wall murals and quant boutiques. The 12 South Neighborhood is surrounded by residential homes and very close to the Melrose area which is a more transitional neighborhood. Both neighborhoods are very walkable and have their own selection of shopping, dining and drinking options.

The apartments in 12 South and Melrose are mid-rise apartments similar to the options found in Downtown Nashville and Midtown and most are less than five years old. The majority of apartments in the area include secured access and gated parking. The apartment communities in 12 South and the Melrose area feature high end amenities such as sky lounges, pools and fitness centers. Many apartment communities in 12 South and Melrose have pet parks and/or pet spas. The finishes in each apartment include granite or quartz countertops and hard wood vinyl flooring. Washer and dryer is included in the apartments along with nest thermostats in many. Because 12 South and Melrose are both very popular neighborhoods, many of the apartment communities have frequent resident and networking events.

After you spend the day traversing 12 South with your selfie stick refuel at 12 South Taproom and Grill or Urban Grub. If you just need a caffeine fix try Portland Brew or Frothy Monkey for some delicious local beanage. Bartaco has some exquisite street taco options and Mafiaoza’s is a good place for a slice.
