Our concept is inspired by the renowned dining and “sleeper” train cars that originated in the 1860s and reached their heyday in the Roaring ’20s. The original Pullman legacy was one of exceptional luxury, legendary service, and the fight for equal rights -- and we carry on those traditions to this day.
As a nod to this era, we’re located in historic Cummins Station, originally built as a modern transit warehouse in 1906 to give Nashville merchants access to a national commerce landscape. The famed Pullman trains made it all possible.
Today's Pullman Standard once again serves as a hub, connecting patrons from all over with Nashville’s unique culture through craft cocktails and culinary experiences.

Located just beyond the bright lights and bachelorettes in one of downtown Nashville’s most iconic buildings you’ll find Nashville’s hottest new cocktail lounge Pullman Standard.
Whether you’re looking for a great meal or a place to relax with a drink, sit at the bar or out in the open lounge area to admire the details and imagine yourself among the luxury of golden age rail travel.
A non-intimidating, sophisticated bar.
You’re welcomed with warmth from the staff as you sit in any of the hand-picked furniture to make yourself comfortable. The drinks are explained, and the food is popular with a Pullman twist.
You’ll truly appreciate the taste range with these tacos. Flavorful with almost a sweetness that is not too overpowering but complementary.
When guests sit down to order, there’s no QR code to scan. In keeping with Pullman Standard’s theme of bygone days, the menus are enclosed in leather covers — custom-made by artisans at Lockeland Leather in East Nashville — and secured with brass inserts to weave in one of the space’s key design elements. On this intentionality, Greg says “You get the [other senses] and then, when you sit down, this is the first thing you touch. I wanted to make sure that this was beyond reproach.”
Try shareable dishes such as the dry-aged beef tartare with fried brioche and oyster aioli, American Waygu with puffed bread, aerated cheddar and onion jam, or the Rohan duck stick with black cherry lacquer and pistachio. For dessert, the wasabi pea-mint soft serve in a black sesame cone is a treat you won’t find anywhere else. Of course, you shouldn’t skip the gorgeous craft cocktail menu featuring highlights like the Hotel Florence, inspired by an 1880s-era hotel in (appropriately) Chicago’s Pullman Historic District.
