My Food Recommendation for Bridgestone Arena

I went to Bridgestone Arena for a Nashville Predators game with one of my friends. My recommendation on the food to get at the stadium is the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. I feel that if you are in Nashville, you should get something that the area is known for. If you can only go to one game at Bridgestone Arena, I recommend getting the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich.


For drinks, try and go to a concession stand that has an express checkout area. From my experience, the lines for express checkout means you get back to your seats faster since you won’t be waiting in line for that long.


Also, if you have time, try and go to a few bars around the venue before the game. My friend and I were bar hoping before the game all around Bridgestone Arena.


Can You Bring Outside Food into Bridgestone Arena?

Fans can’t bring any outside food or drink into the venue for any game or event. However, there are plenty of restaurants and country music bars that you can visit within walking distance of the hockey arena. Even though Broadway is the main street with the most to offer in Nashville, there are numerous bars and restaurants on surrounding streets to visit.


Check out the Bridgestone Arena parking guide to know where to park before heading to the stadium. Also, visit the Bridgestone Arena Bag Policy guide to see what bags can come into the venue.


Conclusion: Bridgestone Arena Food

I recommend getting the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich if you are going to a game at Bridgestone Arena. I had it there and thought it was really good. However, just be aware that the sandwich itself is spicy, so only get this if you enjoy spicy foods.


Also, I really like how Bridgestone Arena is in the heart of the action in Nashville. There are so many bars within walking distance of the venue that you can grab a drink at before or after the game.
