A wide array of publications point to Nashville as America’s latest “it” city, and a new video series produced by the Grand Ole Opry is showing us why.

Opry Entertainment is in the process of rolling out eight new digital series, the latest of which is called Another Round, which examines Nashville’s best bars, restaurants and coffee shops. The debut episode has hosts Austin Bever and Colin Cooper visiting Music City hot spots like Lower Broadway, Sinema and The Well. Check it out below.

This premiere episode of Another Round serves up some of Nashville's best cocktails and coffee drinks. Austin & Colin, visit Sinema - a movie inspired restaurant & bar converted from a historic theater in Nashville's 8th South neighborhood, where we pour up cocktails inspired by some of Hollywood's most iconic films. The next morning, the guys venture to The Well - a charity based coffee shop in surburban Brentwood with initiatives to improve drinking water in underdeveloped communities across the globe.

“Our goal is to create a fun, engaging platform where you can learn more about the music of Nashville and the experience of Nashville,” Opry Entertainment President Steve Buchanan says in a press release. “And, there is no better, more fun way to discover Nashville than with Austin and Colin.”

The Opry didn’t skimp on production talent for the series, utilizing its own Ben Stansbury, who’s worked on music videos for the likes of Dolly Parton, Kenny Chesney and Eric Church.
