Nashville Real Estate blogger Grant Hammond is reporting that country star John Rich and business partner Phil Martin have purchased the Seanachie Irish Pub building on Lower Broadway in downtown Nashville. The building is currently pending renovations as the group completes the process of acquiring building permits. Hammond speculates that the selling price “was in the neighborhood of $5 million.”
According to Hammond’s sources, Martin is a developer who has had success in Alabama and Florida.
Hammond also reports that Jimmy Buffett is rumored to be planning on opening a Margaritaville in the old Planet Hollywood building which is now called the Global Café. A job posting for a Nashville area manager was briefly posted recently on the Margaritaville website.
