We’ve seen some camp interior decor in our time, but this is something else. A hotel in Nashville has opened a Dolly Parton-inspired restaurant and rooftop bar, and it’s a veritable pink palette of fabulousness.

The name of the restaurant and bar is White Limozeen, and it can be found at the top of the Graduate Nashville (101 20th Ave. North), which itself opened late last year.

Named in honor of Parton (White Limozeen, released in 1989, was the singer’s 29th studio album), the hotel says the destination, “celebrates the uniquely Nashville identity of unapologetically following your dreams.”

The new bar and restaurant were unveiled in July after the hotel was allowed to reopen to guests following COVID restrictions.

“We’re thrilled to finally open our doors at White Limozeen and welcome locals and travelers alike to experience this over-the-top, elegant, yet inviting rooftop destination,” said Ben Weprin, Graduate Hotels CEO and Founder in a statement.

“White Limozeen is a celebration of the nonconformists that have always done it their own way. It’s unique, beyond special, and tells the narrative of a relentless, rags-to-riches journey. Whether you are playing for tips on a stool on 16th Avenue, selling out Nissan Stadium, or just stopping by for a cocktail, this will be an unforgettable experience for everyone.”

Decor wise, the theme is opulence and over-the-top. The restaurant features a pink onyx bar, baby-pink walls, portraits of country music legends, glitzy chandeliers and gilded fabrics.

The exterior patio features plenty more pink, oversized daybeds, a wading pool, and – the pièce de résistance – a large, pink bust of Dolly Parton. It’s the perfect place to soak up some sun and sip on a ‘Queen of the Rodeo’ cocktail from the bar.

If that’s not quite enough Dolly for you, the hotel also offers a ‘9-to-5’ suite, complete with a disco ball tiled ceiling, shag carpets, and a kingsize water bed.
