The Sky’s The Limit

Plan Girls’ Night Out, One That Won't Soon Be Forgotten

Pop icon Debbie Gibson is coming on June 17 to Skydeck, Nashville’s largest rooftop patio and concert venue. Located at Fifth + Broadway, which has numerous restaurants and stores, this concert is a perfect opportunity for an all-encompassing, fun girls’ night out.

“Debbie Gibson is all about empowering women and has been from the beginning of her career,” says Andrea Rizk, public relations consultant for Fifth + Broadway. “It’s going to be a high-energy show by a great artist celebrating women.”

Guests may arrive before the concert to have a delicious meal and fancy cocktail, then do a little shopping. After the show, wind down at one of the many bars and restaurants.

Although Andrea has a great affinity for all the establishments at Fifth + Broadway, here are her recommendations for girlfriends getting together to create lasting memories.


Boqueria is a Spanish tapas-style restaurant offering small plates to pass and share. It also has spectacular sangria and cocktails.

Sixty Vines is a lovely seasonally-sourced restaurant and wine bar.

Both restaurants are wonderful pre-show stops.


One More Cocktail Club is fun and fashioned like an old-time speakeasy.

Pushing Daisies is a unique underground margarita bar.


Lip Lab is really cool. Make custom lipstick shades to wear to the concert.

Garage Sale Vintage is a clothing store with T-shirts, leather jackets, boots and more from the 80s. It also sells vinyl records; there might even be a few from Debbie Gibson.

For those who get thirsty while looking through merchandise, grab a drink or even a Jell-O shot at its tequila and mezcal bar. "Shop and refresh at the same time," suggests Andrea.

Stroll around Hollie Ray Boutique, which is owned by two sisters from Franklin. There are high-quality jewelry, gifts and accessories to admire.
