Dierks Bentley to Open Whiskey Row Restaurant in Nashville
Dierks Bentley, Nashville and a bar ... What more could a country music fan want?
Bentley is getting ready to open another of his Whiskey Row restaurants, this time in Music City. The location is scheduled to open on Lower Broadway (400 Broadway, to be exact) in early 2017, in a pre-existing, 106-year-old brick building. According to the Tennessean, the building is 14,500 square feet -- plenty of room for the three stages and rooftop deck that are planned.
Aside from the sweet space and high tourist traffic, the location also offers something a little more sentimental to Bentley.
"[Lower Broadway] is home of the bars where I cut my teeth night after night, usually running up a beer tab bigger than the tips I made covered," Bentley says in a statement. "It’s pretty full-circle to think that we’re getting the chance to open one of my bars, backing right up to the Ryman Auditorium, where other artists will look back on as the place they got their start, too.”
Two of Bentley's Whiskey Row establishments are already open in Arizona: One is in Scottsdale, while the other is in Tempe. A third Arizona location, in Gilbert, is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016. Locations in Las Vegas, Nev., and Chicago, Ill., are also planned.
