Chattanooga-based restauranteur Daniel Lindley has opened a 160-person capacity concert lounge in Nashville’s Germantown neighborhood called The Back Corner (TBC).

Located behind the chef’s upscale 5th & Taylor restaurant, the two-tier venue publicly opened its doors on Dec. 16 after already hosting a songwriter event with Laura Veltz, Jonathan Singleton and Luke Combs for the Big Machine Label Group’s staff retreat. Shows are expected to begin in January 2017.

“The Back Corner is equipped to be Nashville’s premier small cap venue,” said Nate Cannon, of the venue. “Our capacity is 160, although we can hold more for special events. We are taking time and care compiling our opening calendar. In the meantime, we are concentrating on being the easiest place to drink in the neighborhood and city.”

A suspended sculpture is from Chattanooga-based artist Cessna Decosimo. The menu for the 44′ diamond shaped bar will launch tonight (Dec. 21) with 5th & Taylor-favorite cocktails and fresh juice-based libations, which are a continuation of a partnership with I Love Juice Bar. A bar menu will highlight small plates, provided from 5th & Taylor’s kitchen.

The stage is 225 sq. ft. with a 11′ x 9′ LED screen backdrop. There is a green room with exterior access and private bathroom. Full sound equipment details can be found at thebackcorner.com. Custom steel and glass railings are featured throughout with a mix of reclaimed and custom furniture and lighting, all from designer Daniel James.

Hours are 6 p.m.-12 a.m. Monday-Thursday, and 6 p.m.-1 a.m. Fri./Sat. Contact the venue at 615-242-4747.
