Morgan Wallen to Open Six-Story Bar & Restaurant in Nashville

Morgan Wallen is slated to be the latest artist with a bar in downtown Nashville.

The Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper and Knoxville-area native will open a six-story, 30,000-square-feet venue called This Bar and Tennessee Kitchen this summer on Nashville’s Lower Broadway, located on 4th Avenue. The venue will feature three live music stages and an open-air rooftop. A gift shop will feature exclusive Wallen merchandise offerings.

Wallen teamed with TC Restaurant Group to create the space; TC Restaurant Group is also responsible for working on other artist-curated venues including FGL House, Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar, Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa and Luke Bryan’s Luke’s 32 Bridge Food+Drink.

Each floor of This Bar and Tennessee Kitchen will feature photos and memorabilia from Wallen’s childhood and career thus far. The menu will be curated by Wallen with chef Tomasz Wosiak, vice president of culinary development for TC Restaurant Group, and feature Southern delectables, bar bites, Tennessee favorites and some of Wallen’s mother’s recipes. 

“I sing about finding myself in ‘this bar,’ and now it’s coming to life. This venue will hold true to everything I love and is inspired by my fans and the way they have embraced me and my music,” Wallen said in a statement. “We’re designing a menu around some of my family favorites, so it brings a piece of East Tennessee to Music City. I hope This Bar is a place you’ll want to find yourself in and make memories with your friends and family and celebrate the way country music has brought us all together.”
 
“Morgan Wallen is one of the most sought after stars in the music industry, and we are thrilled that he has trusted us to deliver a concept that will bring him closer to his fans, hold fast to his roots and enshrine his name among an exclusive group of artists who can claim international stardom with a Lower Broadway destination fans all over the world seek out,” said Adam Hesler, president at TC Restaurant Group, via a statement.

Wallen is just the latest artist to open a bar in downtown Nashville, following recent news of rocker Jon Bon Jovi’s upcoming space, also set for Lower Broadway. Other country artists with bars/restaurants in downtown Nashville include Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and Miranda Lambert, while Luke Combs and Eric Church also have bars set to open.

This is also the latest new business venture from Wallen, who recently teamed with Eric Church to announce they are purchasing the Field & Stream brand, with plans for relaunching the print magazine and to start an outdoor music festival.
