Midtown Cafe, a Nashville hotspot for music industry executives for more than 30 years, has announced it has closed indefinitely, according to a social media post from Midtown Cafe owner/manager Randy Rayburn.
We shall return to serve you again on the other side of these challenging times. Thanks for your patronage, support and friendship all these years… We all look forward to the days and nights when we may serve you again. On behalf of my original Midtown managing partner, Jerry Baxter, and my Cabana managing partner-Craig Clifft, I thank you for letting us host and serve you well. Excelsior!
The announcement comes in the wake of the spreading COVID-19 novel coronavirus. Last week, Nashville mayor John Cooper advised local bars to shut down temporarily, and for restaurants to scale back the number of patrons allowed to 50% of capacity.
