Nashville Underground, a four-level music venue, restaurant, bar, and event space co-owned by brothers Joey and Gavin DeGraw, officially opened on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. The 40,000-square-foot facility is the largest on Lower Broadway and has the highest rooftop, four full-service bars, two full kitchens, and three stages. MJM Architects and Anderson Design Studio spearheaded the architecture and interior design. Nashville Guru got a look inside.
One thing’s for sure: There isn’t a shortage of space at Nashville Underground. Whether you want to watch the band from a comfy booth, unwind in the second-floor lounge, or play cornhole on the roof, there’s plenty of room to maneuver. Standout features include a real green grass rooftop, an LED video dance floor, over 40 televisions (including two video walls), and panoramic views from the city’s only two-level rooftop patio. If that’s not enough, a mechanical bull is also in the works.

Nashville Underground’s other claim to fame: the coldest beer in Music City. The draft beer system keeps the beer below freezing, around 29 degrees. There are 18 beers running through the icy cold lines, but if cocktails, wine, and Bushwackers are more appealing, they have those, too.
The Southern-inspired food menu includes signature dishes like Nashville Hot Chicken, Lynne’s Truffle Mac and Cheese, Broadway BBQ Chicken, and Strawberry Fields Salad. The rooftop menu offers a variety of tapas (like poutine and bruschetta), as well as a raw bar, flatbreads, and bites.
Nashville Underground’s weekend brunch starts at 9 a.m., making it one of the earliest brunch options in town. Try the Fruit Lovers Waffle (buttermilk waffle topped with berries, fruit sauce, cinnamon sugar, and warm maple syrup) or the andouille sausage omelet (sausage, Pepper Jack cheese, roasted red peppers, and caramelized onions with Sriracha cream sauce).
