Henley, a new modern American brasserie, is opening in Midtown’s Kimpton Hotel in late spring 2017. Expect inventive cuisine inspired by flavors of the south in a laid-back environment. Focuses include shareable plates, communal courses, and a whiskey-centric beverage program. The menu will be under the direction of James Beard Award-winning executive chef RJ Cooper.
The name “Henley” is inspired by the iconic shirt made popular in the early 1900s, which was a symbol of rebellion against the rigid clothing of the era. Hints of this inspiration will be present in each aspect of Henley, including the design, décor, menu, service, and staff.
“Nashville is an incredibly spirited place and Midtown is a particularly exciting part of this city, which is why we decided to open our first restaurant here,” says Avi Rathnakumar, Regional Director of Restaurant & Bar Operations for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. “The proximity to Music Row, world-class colleges and the bustling downtown make this location an ideal spot for both Nashville natives and visiting guests to experience Henley’s cuisine and cocktails.”
Henley will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The restaurant also includes an outdoor dining space facing Broadway as well as a private dining space called The Snooker.
