Luke Bryan Opening Six-Story Nashville Bar With a Name Inspired by Home
Country music fans looking for a good time courtesy of their favorite artist are having no trouble lately in downtown Nashville, where a crop of celebrity-themed bars have been springing up as of late. The latest Nashville star set to put his name on a venue is American Idol's Luke Bryan.
Bryan has put his stamp on Nashville’s only six-floor entertainment facility, Luke's 32 Bridge Food + Drink, which is scheduled to open this month. The venue is located at 301 Broadway, which is located crossing Third Avenue, and will offer a dazzling array of enticements for visitors: eight bars, two restaurants (including Nashville's only rooftop sushi bar), and four stages for live entertainment to play.
The location most recently housed a boot store, and was purchased by Ohio-based TC Restaurant Group, which is responsible for a few other area bars/eateries — including Jason Aldean's newly-opened Kitchen + Rooftop Bar.
“When I first moved to Nashville I played several of the bars on the iconic Broadway Street,” says Bryan in a statement. “I never would have dreamt that I would one day be a part of a place that could offer the same dream to others. Because of Music City and the fans all across the country, the reality of this amazing venue has become possible.”
The term "32 Bridge" refers to the Route 32 bridge crossing the Flint River in Bryan's native Georgia. This is also the name of his clothing line, for which he partnered with retailer Cabela's in 2014.
Other prominent country names besides Bryan and Aldean who have thrown their hats into the restaurant business include Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, John Rich, Alan Jackson and Kid Rock.
