Edgehill / Wedgewood-Houston
This neighborhood is considered the heart of Nashville's entertainment industry. Nestled within homes and buildings are the recording studios from which your favorite songs came to be. Including everything from Elvis Presley's "How Great Thou Art" (recorded at Historic RCA Studio B) to Foo Fighters' "Congregation" (recorded at Southern Ground Nashville).
Nashville’s Wedgewood-Houston (or “WeHo”) neighborhood is located a few blocks south of downtown Nashville with borders defined by Houston Street to the north, Wedgewood Avenue to the south, Eighth Avenue South to the west and Fourth Avenue South/Nolensville Pike to the east.
The proximity to downtown, relatively affordable rents and real estate prices, and the number of old warehouses, factories and garages have attracted artists, musicians and entrepreneurs to open restaurants, distilleries, breweries, galleries, studios and workshops in the area. Look for major growth in the years to come: Apple Music’s Nashville office and a SoHo House Hotel are slated to open here soon.
