Drusie and Darr - The Hermitage Hotel

The Hermitage Hotel has been Nashville’s celebrated gathering place for more than 110 years. Helmed by an international acclaimed chef, the Drusie and Darr restaurant brings a contemporary feel to the South while showcasing the abundance of Tennessee’s produce. Chef Jean-Gorges Vongerrichten re-designed the space with interior designer Thomas Juul-Hansen, who has developed the interiors of all Vongerichten’s restaurants. The design uses a palette of natural materials—metal, wood, leather and stone—complemented by lighting that illuminates the restaurant’s arched ceilings. All furnishings, from the mother-of-pearl pendant lamps to the seating, tables and curved banquettes, are entirely bespoke to Drusie & Darr. A new, dedicated restaurant entrance is directly accessible from Sixth Avenue. The property is recognized as a national historic landmark and has been honored by the Historic Hotels of America for its continued excellence
