A Look Inside: Virago’s New Space

June 4, 2019 | Advertising Disclosure | Our Sponsors may be mentioned in this article.

Virago, the first restaurant concept from M Street founder, Chris Hyndman, in 2000, relocated to its new home at 1120 McGavock Street. The elevated sushi and Asian-centric restaurant took over the space previously occupied by M Street’s former event venue, The Rosewall. The doors officially opened to the public on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Nashville Guru stopped by to get a look inside.


The Interior

The new Virago space has a modern, edgy, late-night vibe. Guests are quickly drawn to the dimly-lit lounge area upon entering, which features plush red sofas, candlelight, mirrors, and an eye-catching arched ceiling. Grab a seat at the bar for an intimate conversation or enjoy a group dinner in the main dining room. The multi-configurable floor plan has capacity for up to 236 people.


The Exterior

Virago is now located between Moto and Saint Anejo on McGavock Street in the Gulch. Look for the red “Virago” sign in Japanese at the end of the walkway.


The Menu

With the new destination comes new menu offerings. Guests can now enjoy a late-night menu with all items for $10 and under after 10:00pm, and other new highlights like temaki rolls and makimono rolls. Past favorites are still intact, including Maki Sake Monday featuring half-price select maki and select 2-for-1 sake and cocktails. See the menus.
