If you can’t decide between relaxing on a sofa with a caffeine-fueled Americano, hitting the bar for a Mezcal Mule or bowling a few games with friends, then PINEWOOD SOCIAL — Nashville, Tenn.’s, newest gathering spot — is the place for you. Housed in a 13,000-square-foot historic trolley barn fitted with bowed steel trusses and polished concrete floors, ­Pinewood Social combines living-room

 comfort with all the amenities of a cool evening space. Think of it as a modern-day social club without the membership fee. Inside, there’s a satellite location of Nashville’s beloved coffee “brewtique” Crema; an Americana-inspired restaurant helmed by Josh Habiger (former chef of the city’s esteemed The Catbird Seat) that features dishes like traditional mushroom pot pie and smoked-trout casserole; and a full bar serving craft beer and an extensive selection of Scotch, bourbon and rye. There’s also a seasonally changing selection of classic cocktails made with house-made juices and syrups and ice chiseled from a 300-pound block. For entertainment, the space boasts meeting areas that morph into private karaoke rooms and a six-lane bowling alley, complete with its own personal lounge. Not enough? Pinewood Social will be introducing a pool, bocce-ball courts and an outdoor Airstream bar this summer. www.pinewoodsocial.com
