Riverwood Mansion proudly hosted a Dinner Lab dining experience last Tuesday evening.
Dinner Lab is a social dining experiment that unites undiscovered chefs with adventurous diners who are looking for something different from the conventional restaurant experience.
It is a membership-based dinner club that plans two dinners a week—each with a different chef, menu, and location. Their events bring together a group of interesting strangers around a common table to share cuisine crafted by up-and-coming chefs from all over the country.
Take a look into our most recent Dinner Lab Nashville event where Chef Kevin Ramquist designed a holiday menu to fill the spirits of diners at Riverwood Mansion.

Sara Evans releases a brand new music video for her single, “Put My Heart Down”. The video was shot here at Riverwood Mansion inside our triple parlor. The mansion’s old hardwood flooring, stunning chandeliers, and grand fireplaces help set the scene for the music video.
Watch it now:
“The Peter Zavadil-directed clip has a cast of one: Evans. Set inside an historic mansion in Nashville, the video shows the singer on a couch surrounded by lights… seemingly hundreds of lights, hanging from the ceiling and scattered on the floor.” – Rolling Stone
The exclusive premiere was released in an online Rolling Stone article earlier this week.

Lydia and Hunter had the most ideal wedding day last November surrounded by their closest loved ones. The Bride & Groom decided to have a special moment to see one another before the wedding ceremony. It is always so sweet to see the images of the groom’s face as he turns around to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day. There was definitely no denying the love these two shared for one another.
The intimate ceremony was held in Riverwood’s Triple Parlor, with beautiful boxwood initials adorning the altar and real candles lit throughout, creating a truly romantic setting. Keeping with the southern theme, RC’s and Moon Pies were given to guests as favors and homemade pies served as the Groom’s dessert. The Bride & Groom kept their guests entertained during the reception by playing “The Shoe Game” and enjoying music by the DJ throughout the evening. We enjoyed having the opportunity to share this day with Lydia & Hunter and wish them a lifetime of happiness!
