Nashville has long been a draw for creatives. The city is filled with innovative craftspeople, designers, chefs and, of course, musicians, eager to share their passion with all who visit. Located in downtown’s SoBro (short for “south of Broadway”) neighbourhood, Four Seasons Hotel Nashville is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the area’s coolest bars, restaurants and live music venues.

Grab a pint of the all-Tennessee-grain State Park Blonde Ale – the official beer of the Tennessee State Parks – at Tennessee Brew Works while listening to live local music every night. Or head to The Listening Room Cafe to see performances by up-and-comers, number-one-hit songwriters and international acts in what is considered the “best-sounding room in Nashville.” You can also catch some Delta blues, rockabilly and jazz at the Hotel’s own Mimo Bar, featuring live music every Friday to Sunday curated by the Hotel’s music-obsessed Director of Public Relations Robert Chinman and on-property guitarist and music afficionado Assistant Director of Residences Dustin Doering. “Just as you would want for any Friday or Saturday night in Downtown Nashville, we are bringing an energetic line-up to Mimo Bar,” says Chinman. Want a taste of what you could be hearing? Add the Mimo Bar Spotify playlist to your regular rotation.

For those really wanting to immerse themselves in the creative energy of Music City, Four Seasons can arrange for a fully customized songwriters’ round experience. Hosted in a private space at a nearby art gallery, you’ll get to sit in and witness Nashville-based hit songwriters performing together and sharing the stories behind the creative process and what inspired their music.

From the towering bookshelves of Starfield Library to the two-dimensional stylings of Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20, Seoul is filled with amazing selfie spots. And one of the most iconic locations to snap a grid-worthy pic is Bukchon Hanok Village. Famous for its traditional Korean houses – known as hanoks – this residential neighbourhood in the Jongno District offers a first-hand glimpse of the country’s rich cultural heritage.

Four Seasons Hotel Seoul invites you to explore the village, along with Gyeongbok Palace and Insa-dong, on the exclusive Love Is Seoul-Searching on Foot walking tour. An expert will take you on a half-day tour through some of the city’s most beautiful places. You also have the option to don a hanbok – traditional Korean clothing – during the tour for an even deeper experience. For women, that means a jeogori (top) and chima (skirt), while for men, hanbok consists of a jeogori and loose-fitting baji (trousers).

And if you’re looking for modern architectural marvel, let Four Seasons arrange for a private limousine ride and a tailored shopping experience at Dior Seongsu, capped off with a drink at Café Dior in front of a backdrop inspired by the lush gardens of Christian Dior’s childhood home on the seaside cliffs of Granville, France.

Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston, is home to an impressive art collection, including site-specific pieces and carefully considered works found throughout the property.

Boston may be famous for its pivotal role in American history and as the setting of some of the world’s top intellectual institutions, but it’s also home to a blossoming urban art scene. And few places can give you the inside scoop on both established and up-and-coming artists quite like Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston. To start, the Hotel itself is home to a robust collection of works from a group of internationally important artists. The diverse collection was carefully curated in collaboration with world-renowned art consultants Kate Chertavian and Lucy Rosenburgh, and pieces can be found throughout the property, including in every guest room and residence. Let the Concierge pour you a glass of champagne before you set off on a self-guided tour.

Tucked away on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay, the Hotel is within walking distance of numerous museums and galleries, including the not-to-be-missed Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Have the Concierge organize a custom itinerary for you, starting with a stop at the art-filled Farmer’s Horse Coffee for a fresh-brewed Ethiopian coffee. The Concierge can also arrange for a car to take you to the Seaport District to visit the Institute of Contemporary Art (an official hotel partner) to browse in the current exhibition.

A stay at Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, puts the city's culinary wonders within easy reach.

As one of the world’s best foodie cities, this European destination can make even the simplest meal feel elegant. You could plan an entire trip to Paris based solely on the restaurants you’ll visit and head home happy and fulfilled.

When you stay at Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, you’ll have direct access to some of the most coveted tables in the city.

Serving modern French fare by Executive Chef Christian Le Squer paired with rare wines carefully selected by award-winning Head Sommelier Eric Beaumard, Le Cinq offers the dining experience of a lifetime.

And that’s just one of the Hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurants. Have the Concierge book you a table at the one-Michelin-starred Le George for trendy Italian-Mediterranean cuisine for dinner one night, then for lunch the next day in the glass-panelled courtyard at L’Orangerie to sample the innovative work of Chef Alan Taudon, focused on vegetables, seafood and dairy – no meat – that has also earned this restaurant one Michelin star.

Take your culinary escapade one step further on one of the exclusive chef-led experiences curated only for guests at Four Seasons. Spend a day in Versailles with Le George’s own Chef Simone Zanoni to pick fresh produce for your private cooking class, or take a scenic two-hour drive to the Champagne region to sip the oldest champagne vintages in the world during a private tour of Maison Belle Époque.

Whether you have a toddler, a young child or a teen – or all of the above – finding a family-friendly city can make all the difference. Look no further than Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale – the ideal home base for your city adventures – with a team well-versed in creating itineraries that are sure to delight guests of all ages.

Paying homage to the city’s yachting legacy with a decidedly mid-century feel, the Hotel proves that kid-friendly spaces don’t have to sacrifice style. The all-day café Honey Fitz – located just off the lobby – is the perfect example of this, where a central marble table displays pastries by day and champagne by night. “Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale is set to usher Fort Lauderdale into a new era of luxury. The natural beauty of its location along the Beach Boulevard immediately reminded me of La Croisette in Cannes,” says designer Tara Bernerd. “We brought the space to life with an effortless flow throughout the public spaces, pairing fresh palettes with statement mid-century furniture, creating a luxurious yet welcoming atmosphere that reflects the city’s youthful and vibrant spirit.”

Set on the shores of Fort Lauderdale Beach, Four Seasons is a modern seaside haven for families. Younger children will love the daily activities at Kids For All Seasons – a dedicated kids’ club based on the Hotel’s Ocean Sun Deck – which includes activities such as poolside games, swimming activities, cooking classes, and arts and crafts. Older kids can cruise along the beach on one of the Hotel’s custom bicycles or ride over to nearby Bonnet House Museum & Gardens to explore the five distinct ecosystems that make up the scenic grounds. The Hotel can also arrange for a variety of unique experiences the whole family will love, such as a private Everglades airboat tour, a private yacht charter and a private helicopter tour for thrilling views of the Florida coastline.
