Old Dominion Announces Opening Of Their Nashville Bar, Odie's

Old Dominion's Trevor Rosen: "We wanted it to be a place where a group of songwriters who might have a band could play, or someone starting out might be able to be part of a writers thing and get heard."

Old Dominion is jumping into Nashville’s crowded celebrity-themed bar scene with Odie’s in 2024. But unlike most of the other country music-themed watering holes in Music City, Old Dominion’s Odie’s will be located on 1919 Division Street near Music Row instead of the typical Lower Broadway.

“We wanted it to be a place where a group of songwriters who might have a band could play,” said Old Dominion’s Trevor Rosen, “or someone starting out might be able to be part of a writers thing and get heard. You know, pay it forward because all these years later, we know it works. That’s much better than just a temple to who we think we are.”

The idea for Odie’s was born at a band lunch before Rosen ran into Good Time Design’s CEO Ty Hauter at his Franklin, Tennessee, restaurant. The chance meeting led to Old Dominion collaborating with Hauter on a space that leaned into the quaint establishments the band’s writers used to visit after writing sessions.

Good Time Design is a hospitality and entertainment group based in San Diego and Nashville and is responsible for Sonny’s Patio Pub and Cerveza Jack’s in Nashville.

“We didn’t quite know what it was,” Rosen said of Odie’s in a statement. “But we also knew what we were missing. The more we talked, the more we realized we wanted a bar like the places we went to when we were just having our first cuts, hanging out with other writers.”

Odie’s will be near Red Door and Winners and Losers in the old ReBar location. The band hopes the location away from Lower Broadway’s neon neighborhood will attract both music lovers and music business professionals.

“We’re so excited to announce that we’re teaming with @goodtimedesign to open a new bar in Nashville’s Midtown neighborhood,” Old Dominion shared on Instagram. “ Midtown has played such a role in the history of our band. From chilling at the bar after writing, to playing weekly into the wee hours of the morning and even recently playing Whiskey Jam to launch our tour…. It’s an important neighborhood for not only upcoming artists and writers but also for locals and visitors who want a good place they know they can go and have a good time. Odie’s will be that neighborhood bar for us all. #ODIES”
