"Inspired by blake shelton's No. 1 hit, ole red is always itchin' to have a little fun with food, drink, and music that raises the bar on broadway."
Ole Red is everything you want when visiting Nashville all rolled into one - a restaurant, bar, music venue, and rooftop that is sure to blow your boots off! Shout-out to the Ryman and Blake Shelton for bringing this venue to life, it sure as hell made my CMAfest week one for the books.
This 5 floor party house is packed with a ton of fun, so lets start on Floor 1!
Level 1: Main floor / stage
Immediately upon walking into the first floor you'll notice how MASSIVE this space actually is, which is what sets it apart from the rest of Broadway. This bar was built to host major performances, from the open floor plan to the gigantic big screen tv and state-of-the-art lights, it's not your average Honky Tonk. I worked with Ole Red during their grand opening week which happened during CMAfest, I've never seen more big name artists cross one stage in a night, I was literally blown away. Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Hunter Hayes, Trace Adkins, Kelly Clarkson...I could go on! When you come to Ole Red, don't be surprised if an A list artist walks in.
level 2: the Mezzanine
This level overlooks the stage and features a second bar as well as VIP sections. The plush couches give it a more upscale and intimate feel. If you have a group of people in town I definitely suggest reserving one of these sections. Grab a spot on railing for the ultimate view point!
Level 3: Private Event Space
This isn't you're average private event space on Broadway, it's a ballroom, and if you want you can celebrate your wedding reception in it! I got a taste of just how amazing and versatile the space was when I did a menu tasting before they opened. Which by the way, the food is exceptional!
Level 4: Employee Use
For a building this size, they definitely need an entire floor for operations.
Level 5: The Lookout - Skybar
This is clearly my favorite level at Ole Red. There is no other rooftop like it on Broadway, it's big, plush, upscale, and looks over all of downtown! Featuring an indoor bar with booth & table seating, a larger outdoor terrace with an additional bar, ample lounge seating, as well as a killer food menu. The Lookout at Ole Red Nashville is a MUST for those of you who want an upscale Honky Tonk vibe!
The Lookout at Ole Red is a distinct dining experience overseen by acclaimed executive chef, Garrett Pittler. On the rooftop, The Lookout at Ole Red menu will offer shareable small plates like pimento cheese burrata, Nashville hot calamari and fresh seafood bank.From traditional to imaginative, our intention is to provide unique menu options that satisfy every craving."
Menu Items I suggest:
Starters: Red Neck Nachos - these are made with kettle chips and soooo tasty!
Salads: Farmers Market Kale - fresh and light!
Sides to Share: Seasonal Vegetables or for a less healthy option, Pimento Cheese Mac N' Cheese Buttered Biscuit Crumb.
Burgers & Sandwiches: Nashville Hot Chicken Biscuit
Entrées: The Champagne of Fried Chicken - literally a champagne bucket full of friend chicken.
THE LOOKOUT MENU:
Snacks: Lookout! It's 7 Layer Dip
Dine: Big Soft Pretzel or Trio Slider
Once you Finish hanging at Ole Red I suggest:
- Hit up a Preds or Titans game, you're close to both!
- Listen to more live music one at of my favorite venues on Broadway, The Stage.
- Grab a sweet treat from Savannah's Candy Kitchen.
