Music City is finally gearing up for the much-anticipated grand opening of “Morgan Wallen’s This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen.” The six-story establishment located in the heart of Lower Broadway is set to open its doors on Saturday, June 1st at 11 AM, just in time for the CMA Fest. The brainchild of TC Restaurant Group and country music superstar Morgan Wallen, the venue is a unique blend of bar, restaurant, and live music space. It stands adjacent to the historic Ryman Auditorium, offering a prime location for visitors and locals alike.

“We’re thrilled to welcome our first guests on Saturday, June 1st, to This Bar leading into CMA Fest,” said Grant Burlingame, vice president of operations at TC Restaurant Group. “This venue has been a labor of love for us and Morgan. His fans and music lovers alike will love the experiences they will find at This Bar. We’re proud to open its doors.”

The venue’s opening comes weeks after a record-setting weekend for Nashville, with Wallen’s recent performances at Nissan Stadium contributing to the sale of 75,000 hotel rooms, according to the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. Spanning approximately 30,000 square feet, “This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen” features three live music stages, six bars, and an open-air rooftop, providing a variety of spaces for guests to enjoy. The interior pays homage to Wallen’s East Tennessee roots, with each level showcasing personal memorabilia and photos from his childhood and career.

The announcement comes after the Nashville Metro Council voted to reject the installation of a prominent sign for the establishment. The proposed sign, measuring 20 feet vertically and featuring the words “MORGAN WALLEN’S This Bar” on either side, was met with opposition from the council. The signage was requested by 4th Avenue Property LLC, the developer behind “This Bar,” as an “aerial encroachment” on the property. The council’s approval is required for any encroachments along public sidewalks, and the proposal was ultimately rejected by a vote of 30-3.

Morgan Wallen, known for his chart-topping album “One Thing At A Time” has firmly solidified himself as the biggest star in country music today. His recent tour, “One Night At A Time World Tour,” has set attendance records and is set to continue into 2024 with additional stadium performances and a European run. “This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen” is poised to become a landmark destination in Nashville, offering a taste of Wallen’s personal brand and the vibrant culture of Music City.
