Lainey Wilson to Open Bell Bottoms Up Bar in Nashville

Grammy winner and reigning CMA entertainer of the year Lainey Wilson is set to become the latest country star with a bar in downtown Nashville.

This summer, Wilson will open the three-story restaurant and bar Bell Bottoms Up in partnership with TC Restaurant Group on 120 3rd Ave. South, in the location that used to house the now-closed FGL House.


The 27,000-square-foot venue will feature two stages, four bars and a mezzanine floor featuring a bar lounge overlooking the first-floor stage and a dining area. The rooftop level will be home to a 1970s western-inspired aesthetic, with a dance floor, disco-inspired decor and frozen drinks. Guests will also get a look at Wilson’s Louisiana roots through a basement-level space set to open this summer, which will include craft cocktails and a live music space.

Meanwhile, the bar’s menu will offer several Cajun-inspired entrees and bar foods, curated by Wilson in partnership with TC Restaurant Group’s vp of culinary development, chef Tomasz Wosiak. The menu will include Wilson’s favorite salads, as well as crawfish, shrimp boils and boudin, in addition to a cocktail menu that features favorites such as whiskey, experiential group drinks and classic drinks.

“I’m so excited to announce Bell Bottoms Up, which will be opening later this summer,” Wilson said in a statement. “I’ve always wanted to create a destination for all my fans to visit and create new memories at, in the heart of country music city. So, to have a permanent destination in Nashville, is such a dream come true. I can’t wait for all my Wild Horses to get to experience my home away from home.”

“We are honored that Lainey has trusted us to deliver a venue that is faithful to her story, fans, and love for country music,” said Grant Burlingame, vice president of operations at TC Restaurant Group. “Fans gravitate to Lainey because of her authentic, down-to-earth personality, and Bell Bottoms Up will be a representation of her character and legacy. Lainey Wilson is one of the biggest names in country music, and we’re proud to partner with her on a venue that celebrates her genuine mark on the industry and brings another female artist to the forefront of Nashville’s Entertainment District.”

TC Restaurant Group is known for its work on several star bars in Nashville, including Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar and Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.

Meanwhile, Wilson is gearing up for the release of her Lainey Wilson: Bell Bottom Country documentary on Hulu and is nominated for several honors at next week’s ACM Awards on May 16.
