Editor's Note: There's no photo available at the time of writing

The location of Fran’s East Side used to be (perhaps ironically) a beauty salon. Despite that Fran’s East Side has been around since the 1970s and the cash-only bar reflects that. The bar used to be located in a rougher part of town but the area cleaned up and while the places around Fran’s modernized, Fran’s has remained as a place where the working-class people of Nashville can grab a beer, play some pool, and enjoy each other’s company as well as have sing-along or two.

Fran's East Side

Address: 2105 Greenwood Avenue. Nashville, TN 37206 United States
