Longtime Nashville venue The Wildhorse Saloon celebrates an $8.6 million renovation, complete with a new sound and audio/visual system that will allow the venue to live stream its performances.

Additionally, the renovation of the 66,000-square-foot entertainment venue includes new furnishings, a renovated private event space, bars and restrooms. The space’s 3,300-square-foot dance floor is overlooked by two horseshoe-shaped balconies.

A new menu will include a wide selection of local craft beer on tap, including a Yazoo beer crafted exclusively for the Wildhorse Saloon, called Lucky 22.

“Our Wildhorse Saloon has been an integral part of downtown Nashville’s entertainment district for more than 20 years, and we’re excited for locals and visitors alike to see how the enhancements to this iconic venue reflect the vibrancy of today’s Music City brand,” said Pete Weien, general manager of Gaylord Opryland Resort and Attractions.

“We are confident guests will love the new changes and upgrades, especially the new state-of-the-art sound audio visual system and live streaming capabilities that will carry on the tradition of sharing the Wildhorse stage with the world and connecting even more people to Nashville,” Weien said. “Visitors can now experience the effects of a national touring audio/video package in a relaxed and intimate setting.”

The Wildhorse Saloon, which opened in 1994, is owned by Ryman Hospitality Properties, and is located at 120 2nd Ave. N. The venue can hold more than 2,000 people for concerts.
