Eric Church Offers First Glimpse At New Downtown Nashville Venue Chief’s
Eric Church and real estate and hospitality entrepreneur Ben Weprin have offered a first look at Church’s new bar, restaurant, and live music venue, Chief’s, set to open in downtown Nashville in 2023.
Situated at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and Broadway in the former Cotton Eyed Joe building, Chief’s is designed to pay homage to various chapters in the entertainer’s life. The new establishment will feature a ticketed venue for live shows, plus additional live entertainment throughout the building, with more than 3,000 concert posters from throughout Church’s career papering the ground floor. It will also contain a studio for live broadcasting featuring Church’s Outsiders Radio SiriusXM channel, as well as broadcasts by various media partners.
Chief’s also taps into Church’s Carolina roots through a partnership with James Beard Award Winning Pitmaster Rodney Scott. His restaurant, Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ, will overlook downtown with its Hell of a Q rooftop offering.
“I’ve had a blast working with Ben on the design of Chief’s,” says Church. “Like everything we do with our music, the same care and consideration has gone into every detail of this place. It will be unrivaled downtown. I can’t wait to play here.”
“Chief’s is an example of impactful design storytelling at its finest,” says Weprin, CEO and Founder of AJ Capital Partners. “We are excited to bring an experience unparalleled in the world of music, food, and entertainment to the heart of Broadway with one of the most storied properties downtown has seen. Through Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ, two seated music venues and a meaningful design, Chief’s is a physical manifestation to Eric Church and his musical legacy.”
