Still can’t get shitty dive bar, eh?

Nashville has just about everything in its arsenal to deliver a great time to pretty much anybody… that doesn’t live there. And now today, in addition to their numerous celebrity-owned tourist traps, including Justin Timberlake’s new Twelve Thirty Club, the city is adding Puttshack, a tech-infused mini-golf bar.

Set for a grand opening in 2023, it will be located on 1111 Church Street, the site of the Old Gibson Guitar factory.

According to a press release, Puttshack will include 28,000 square feet of miniature golf fun, with four tech-driven courses that incorporate the leading patented Trackaball technology, along with a quality dining menu and cocktail bar. What is Trackaball technology you ask? It’s anybody’s guess…

Joe Vrankin, CEO of Puttshack, is stoked to be adding a location in the heart of Nashville:

“Nashville has an energy unlike anywhere else, and we can’t wait to bring the Puttshack experience to this iconic location and thriving city. We knew we wanted to be in Nashville, so we’re thrilled to be announcing this lease at this point of our expansion.”

The location of the new Puttshack will also be within short walking distance from Nashville Yards, which is a new development of luxury apartments and 42,000 square feet of retail space.

The first ever Puttshack location in America is set for The Interlock in Atlanta this spring. There are already three locations in London, and new Puttshack additions coming to Chicago and Miami later in the year.

Although this news isn’t quite what I was expecting, as an avid golfer, I’m pretty excited to see how this project will turn out. Brews and mini-golf at Puttshack before getting shmacked on Broadway? You have my attention.
