City Winery, a restaurant, music venue and fully functioning winery in one, has set an Oct. 1 grand opening date for its Nashville outpost.
Located at 609 LaFayette St. in SoBro, it will be City Winery’s fourth location, behind New York, Chicago and Napa Valley. Moving into a rehabbed 30,000-square-foot warehouse space, City Winery Nashville will feature a 300-seat concert hall, restaurant and private dining operation, according to a news release. A head chef has not been announced yet, but the menu will feature more than 400 wines and house-made City Winery selections on tap.
“We’ve been eyeing Nashville for a long time and we’re thrilled to finally become a part of its flourishing cultural and culinary scene,” said City Winery founder and CEO, Michael Dorf. “The heart of City Winery is its music and what better place than Music City to showcase all types of music in a unique, upscale setting with fine wine and food. We can’t wait to open our doors and provide our guests with a one-of-a-kind concert and dining experience.”
City Winery has a series of soft opening events planned leading up to October’s grand opening. It has partnered with the Americana Music Association to host the award show after party and has booked a full calendar of shows during the Americana Music Festival. It will also serve as the after-party location for the second annual Music City Food + Wine Festival, according to the release.
The initial concert lineup through December can be found on City Winery’s website, in addition to details on the restaurant’s “VinoFile” program, a membership club with perks. City Winery Nashville was first confirmed last August.
