Nashville’s night life is booming, and Florida Georgia Line want to be part of it.
Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard will open a new multi-level restaurant venue called FGL House in the SoBro neighborhood in June 2017.
Located at 120 3rd Avenue South, the 22,000-square-foot space will have a rooftop deck with a dance floor and a stage, plus a basement level lounge. The first floor will feature a massive wall that showcase country music videos on loop and popular sporting events.
The menu will offer cocktails made with their Old Camp whiskey, gluten-free flatbreads, burgers, sandwiches, steak and fish, as well as the same salads Kelley and Hubbard enjoy on tour.
“Around every corner there’s something different, a different vibe, a different feeling,” Kelley tells People. “We’ve got different pictures, local art work, graffiti, it’s a really cool place. We really do believe, like with our whiskey and our songs, you’ll really, really get to know Tyler and me even more. We want our fans to feel like we’re saying, ’Welcome to our house, this is literally how we roll.'”
In 2015, Florida Georgia Line announced plans to open a retail space and coffee shop in Hillsboro Village. But backstage before their performance at the 2016 CMA Music Festival, they revealed those plans had changed.
“We love coffee, but we decided we’re not as passionate about slinging coffee as we were slinging a lot of other stuff,” Hubbard said last June at Nissan Stadium. “We’re honestly just entrepreneurs … we like to always be creative and we’re always thinking about how we can make another dollar. We never like to get bored.”
FGL House is the sixth country artist-owned entertainment space slated to open in downtown Nashville within the next few years. Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, John Rich’s Redneck Riviera and Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Nashville are expected to open on Lower Broadway by 2018. Alan Jackson is a partner in Acme Feed & Seed, which opened in 2014, and his AJ’s Good Time Bar serves daily starting at 11 a.m.
