Garth Brooks is gearing up to finally open up his new downtown Nashville bar, Friends In Low Places. The country music superstar will be performing at the bar tonight for the opening, a concert that will be livestreamed on Amazon Primeafter Black Friday NFL football.
And ahead of the opening, Garth gave everybody a sneak peak at what they could expect from Broadway’s newest bar.
“I want the Chick-fil-a of honky tonks. I want a place you go in where you feel good, you feel safe. Everybody’s got good manners. I’m hoping that there’s right when you walk in it’s a ‘Love Everybody’ stated right there. That’s what it’s about, right? So I want a place that’s just safe. That feels good.”
And he also revealed that the bar would close at 2 AM, instead of the usual 3 AM closing time of most bars in downtown Nashville, and would stop playing live music at midnight in order to cut down on noise on Broadway.
But one thing that people still have questions about: What’s with the logo?
The logo for Garth’s new bar, which seems to be going with a tiki theme, features the name written out in bones…which obviously has fed into the “where are the bodies” jokes and the whole meme about Garth being a serial killer. (If you’re not familiar with that whole joke, which was started by comedian Tom Segura, we’ve got you covered).
I’m not going to lie, this place has peaked my curiosity just because of how bizarre the whole thing seems. The place is either going to be amazing or a giant meme come to life, and I can’t wait to check it out for myself to find out which one it is.
