Garth Brooks is opening a three-story honky-tonk on Lower Broadway in Downtown Nashville.

On Tuesday (April 5) the country superstar and his business partners Strategic Hospitality revealed plans to open his yet-to-be named bar in Music City via a press release.

According to the press release, Brooks bought 411 Broadway, which is the former home of Nashville Sporting Club. The Oklahoma native purchased the three-story, 40,000+ square foot property in December 2021 via 411, LLC.

“We feel very lucky to have the chance to be part of Lower Broad, which is arguably THE hottest spot in the country,” said Brooks. “The goal is a classic honky-tonk that welcomes all and encourages love and kindness while playing the greatest music in the world in the home of Country Music!”

Brooks has engaged Strategic Hospitality, a Nashville-based hospitality company owned by brothers Benjamin and Max Goldberg, to help execute his vision.

“Garth’s long-standing commitment to Nashville is far beyond music and has been so meaningful to our city,” said the Goldbergs.  “We couldn’t be more excited than to help him bring his concept to reality.”

The new bar is located on Nashville’s historic Lower Broadway, home to the city’s honky-tonks, and is just about a block away from the famed Ryman Auditorium, the “Mother Church of Country Music.” 

Additional details for the 411 Broadway bar regarding the concept and its opening date will be announced as they become available. 

The seven-time CMA Entertainer of the Year is set to return to Nashville on April 15 and 16 to perform back-to-back headlining concerts at Nissan Stadium, just across the bridge from where his just-announced honky-tonk will reside.
