I feel like I could have 1, 2 many in this place.

Luke Combs announced today that he’s partnered with Opry Entertainment Group to open a massive multi-level bar and entertainment venue in downtown Nashville.

The new space, located at 120 Second Avenue just steps off the famous Broadway, will transform the current Wildhorse Saloon into a 69,000 square foot complex, complete with a 9,000 square foot rooftop with one of the best views in downtown Nashville, overlooking the Cumberland River and Nissan Stadium.

The first floor of the venue will maintain the existing stage and dance floor (so still plenty of room for line dancing), and will have a capacity of 1,500 for ticketed events. And each of the three interior levels will feature live music experiences inspired by Luke’s music and lifestyle.

Altogether, the new venue will hold around 3,200 people between the multiple levels and the newly-planned rooftop, and in addition to all of the daily live music, sports betting, and a top-shelf bourbon bar, the venue plans to host a full schedule of ticketed concerts and events.

Speaking about his newest venture, Luke expressed his excitement to be a part of transforming a stage that he used to play himself:

“I got my start in town playing on this stage and to have the opportunity to work with Opry Entertainment to transform it into my own bar is a dream come true. I can’t wait for my fans to see what we’re up to.”

Colin Reed, chairman of Opry Entertainment Group parent company Ryman Hospitality Properties, expressed his excitement at partnering with one of the biggest names in country music:

“I knew there was something extraordinary about Luke from the first time I heard him perform ‘Hurricane.’

Even as he’s gone from filling bars to stadiums around the world, Luke has remained deeply committed to his fans and his craft.

As the downtown entertainment district continues to evolve, we view this new experience as a tremendous opportunity to position Second Avenue with a global audience of country music lovers, anchored by Luke Combs’ massive international fan base.”

Luke becomes the newest in a long line of artists who have opened venues in downtown Nashville, including names like Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and Blake Shelton, who also partnered with the Opry for his bar, Ole Red.

The new space is expected to open in the summer of 2024, but will continue to operate as the Wildhorse Saloon while being transformed into the new venue.

Gotta feeling a lot of Miller Lites are gonna be shotgunned in this place…
