Old Dominion reveals their Nashville bar, Odie’s is gearing up to be the hangout of the summer. 

The low-key establishment will be located at 1919 Division Street, the former home to the ReBar, which sits on Music Row alongside iconic bars like Red Door and the neighboring Winners and Losers.

During a recent interview with Country Now, the group explained that their decision to put “a different spin” on their newest venture by stepping outside of the chaos of Broadway came as a result of the countless hours they spent making memories and music in the Midtown neighborhood.

“We like to drink alone,” Brad Tursi joked before lead singer Matt Ramsey continued, “We didn’t want to get down there in the craziness and the whole bar itself is little bit different. It’s not all about us, there will be flavors of us in there, but we really just wanted to create a space that was cool for locals and tourists and songwriters to come hang, like the places we like to be. You’re not going to go there and just see our faces all over the place, but it will have our vibe.”

Set To Open In Summer Of 2024

Ramsey also shared that things are definitely moving along with the building process and all the behind-the-scenes preparations to make sure Odie’s will be up and running by the summer of 2024.

Old Dominion claims they are “very involved” in all the decision making, from the decor to the overall vibe and even the menu. 

“We’re starting to talk about what we want it to look like, what we want it to feel like and then we will get to the food and drinks.”
