NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Start spreading the news: a Frank Sinatra-themed bar is coming to downtown Nashville.
Icon Entertainment announced details of the project on Tuesday, with a projected opening of early 2020. The bar/lounge will be located in the Southern Turf building, a 19th century era building in Printers Alley.
The bar is described as having a “Manhattan meets Palm Springs ambiance,” with an “upscale small plates menu [that] will feature many of the Chairman of the Board’s favorite Italian recipes,” including a “set ‘em’ up Joe” style cocktail menu.
“We are thrilled that our Dad, who loved good songs, good food and good spirits, will now be part of Music City’s creative and vibrant landscape,” said Nancy and Tina Sinatra. "The stately Southern Turf landmark is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and once housed a speak easy and saloon; how cool is that," Tina added.
Bill Miller, founder of Icon Entertainment, said in a statement “It’s a pleasure and an honor for our family to partner with the Sinatra family to bring what promises to be one of Nashville’s—and the Southeast’s—most notable establishments.”
Icon Entertainment also operates The Johnny Cash Museum, among other downtown venues.
