NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dierks Bentley celebrated the opening of his new Nashville bar, Whiskey Row.
The bar is located in one of Broadway's most historic buildings on Lower Broad.
Bentley celebrated with friends and family Sunday night with a country cover-filled set packed with unscripted surprise performances by Lauren Alaina, Kelsea Ballerini, Bobby Bones, Brothers Osborne, Ryan Hurd, LANCO, Maddie & Tae, Maren Morris, Jon Pardi, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell and more. Mayor Megan Barry and the Nashville Predators were among the list of friends and family who helped celebrate.
“It’s really a full-circle moment for me to be opening Whiskey Row on this street. When I first moved to Nashville, Broadway was my second home…I was the first artist to be hired and fired from The Stage,” Bentley told the crowd. “It’s surreal to think that now I can just jump in my truck and run over here anytime, and that it might possibly be the place where new artists could get their start.”
Bentley played his favorite 90’s Country cover songs before calling out artists friends in the crowd to join.
“We’re thrilled to open the doors at Whiskey Row in Dierks’ beloved Nashville,” said Riot Hospitality Group CEO Ryan Hibbert. “Lower Broadway is one of the country’s top destinations for music and nightlife, and we couldn’t be prouder to bring our brand of first class entertainment to Nashville.”
Whiskey Row is located in the building formerly the long-time home of Gruhn’s Guitars.
The new location includes three floors and a rooftop patio, which is also the highest rooftop bar on Broadway, and that intertwined with Bentley's love for live music and sports delivers an authentic Nashville experience.
