An urban winery concept is coming to SoBro, expected to open Fall 2014. City Winery currently has two locations in New York City and Chicago. They will open a third in Nashville and a fourth in Napa in 2014. The idea behind City Winery is to combine the love of wine, live music and food.
City Winery has purchased a warehouse on Lafayette Street in SoBro. The warehouse will be transformed to feature a 350-person capacity music venue and 150-person capacity restaurant.
“City Winery is taking an old, underutilized warehouse and converting it into an urban winery with a restaurant and entertainment venue. Nashville does not currently have a concept quite like it,” said Jon Petty, the commercial real estate broker who represented City Winery Nashville in the purchase.
More details will be released as plans and construction get underway.
