Lipscomb University, Allen Arena
Lipscomb University's basketball teams play in this sleek venue, but it's also home for the school's chapel and becoming a hotspot for concerts, tradeshows, dinners, lectures and other events. Allen Arena, with a capacity of 5,028, is convenient to posh Green Hills and not far from downtown Nashville. It's located on the edge of the small private school campus, making access a breeze. A multilevel parking garage connected to the building is an added plus.
