Nashville’s beloved Cannery Hall is re-opening in 2023 with three stages and an event space.
Prior to opening, Cannery Hall will complete significant renovations, including new state-of-
the-art lighting and sound systems, improved sightlines, better venue flow, new bathrooms, ample parking, enhanced back-of-house facilities, and new food and beverage options.
The top floor of Cannery Hall will be home to Amaranth, a special events space for up to 380 people, which is now accepting booking inquiries beginning in summer 2023.When Cannery Hall opens next year, it will be the largest independent music venue in Nashville.
The renovated venue also aims to be the most artist-friendly venue in Nashville with easy tour bus parking, and a new backstage with world-class green room facilities. The major investments to modernize and upgrade Cannery Hall were done thoughtfully to preserve the character of the 140-year-old building and highlight Nashville’s musical history.
Cannery Hall’s building was originally built as a flour mill for Liberty Self-Rising Flour in 1883. In
the 1930s, the building was home to the Fletcher Coffee Company, and in the 1950s, Dale Foods Company began processing their products there until the mid-1970s. In 1981, The Cannery began its life as a music venue when the Dale family converted the building into an 18,000 square foot country style restaurant with a stage. By day, the club served as a stage for artists like Reba McEntire, George Strait, Patty Loveless and Tammy Wynette. At night, it was the place to catch rock and alternative touring acts.
In the 1990s, The Cannery started a new chapter when Eddie Warner bought the building which passed on to his sons, eventually opening Mercy Lounge, Cannery Ballroom and The High Watt. In its more than 40 years as a music venue, the historic stages have helped support careers of some of the biggest names in music across many genres. This latest chapter of live music on Cannery Row is led by Nashville native Zach Liff and his DZL Management, which bought an interest in the property.
