A country star is setting up shop on Nashville’s Broadway. Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row is scheduled to open in early 2017 on Lower Broadway.Dierks’ bar and restaurant will feature more than 50 beers on tap and three stages for live music, plus a rooftop deck. This is his third such establishment; the other two are in his home state of Arizona. Dierks pretty much got his start playing music in downtown honky-tonks.
“Lower Broadway’s honky-tonks are the stomping grounds of countless artists past to present chasing this crazy dream of playing music. It’s 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,” Dierks said in a statement issued Thursday (1/7). “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.”
The Whiskey Row management company signed the lease for the building at 400 Broadway on Thursday (January 7th) and will begin renovations in the coming weeks.
