Green Hills is an area in Nashville, Tennessee located south of downtown Nashville on Hillsboro Road (U.S. Highway 431). Green Hills is one of Nashville's more affluent areas, and is often chosen by residents who don't wish a long commute to downtown businesses and three area universities - Vanderbilt, Belmont and Lipscomb Universities (all of which are within a 5-minute drive). Green Hills is also the home to The Mall at Green Hills, a high-end mall that sports several restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory and Carrabba's. Hillsboro Village, with its many interesting shops, is only 3 minutes away -a favorite hangout for college students. The famous Bluebird Cafe, a live music venue, known by locals for its Songwriter's Night, is located on Hillsboro Road in Green Hills.
