Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar is expanding to a location in North Shore Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2024.
The news dropped on Thursday (Feb. 1) via a joint social media post with the country star and the official Instagram of his establishment. The post included a brief video clip soundtracked by Aldean’s “She’s Country,” which offers an overhead view of the city of Pittsburgh and reveals the newest location will open in 2024.
Within the comment section filled with excited fans, the bar and restaurant responded to a user, saying the doors will be opening in its new location “this spring.”
Aldean’s wife, Brittany Aldean, showed her support for her husband’s newest business venture as she shared the announcement on her own Instagram story and wrote, “PITTSBURGH!!! Let’s goooo.”
Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar Now Operates Across Three Locations
This marks the third opening of Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar. Aldean first opened the Nashville location in 2018, in the building that was formerly the home of Tequila Cowboy. The Nashville location sits at 307 Broadway and boasts over 27,000 square feet with four levels and six bars.
Being in the heart of Nashville’s bustling downtown scene allows locals, tourists, and music lovers to come together under one roof and experience a selection of southern-style menu items created by Jason Aldean with Chef Tomasz Wosiak. Some of the dishes offered include Jason’s Mac & Cheese, Southern Meatloaf, Country Cornbread, Chicken Wings, and a Nashville Hot Chicken salad.
Gatlinburg, TN Grand Opening
In August of 2023, the “If I Didn’t Love You” singer was on hand for the grand opening of Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in it’s second location, Gatlinburg, TN.
With his wife and youngest children, Memphis and Navy, by his side, Aldean celebrated the memorable event with a ceremonial ribbon cutting event. The Mayor of Gatlinburg, the honorable Mike Werner, was also on-site to celebrate the new multi-level establishment that brought 125 additional jobs to the area.
Boasting more than 21,000 sq. feet and three levels, Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar features the renowned John Deere 4020 Tractor Bar on the restaurant floor, as a tribute to his iconic song “Big Green Tractor.” Customers can also enjoy the scenic views of the smoky mountains on the rooftop deck.
Jason Aldean once again was hands on in the process of curating the restaurant’s menu in collaboration with Chef Tomasz Wosiak, the vice president of culinary development for TC Restaurant Group. Customers can expect to feel right at home as they enjoy beloved family favorites from Aldean’s childhood such as “Mama Aldean’s Peach Cobbler” and “Grandma’s Pot Roast.”
With both the Gatlinburg and Nashville locations sitting in the midst of popular tourist areas, the newest location is likely to follow suit.
More information surrounding Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar’s Pittsburgh location can be expected in the coming weeks and months.
