Otto’s Bar officially opened on Saturday, October 10, 2020, on Charlotte Avenue in West Nashville. Otto’s is owned and operated by James and Louisa Green, the couple behind Headquarters. Guests can expect craft cocktails and small bites served in a casual atmosphere. Nashville Guru stopped by to get the look inside.
Otto’s is situated in a renovated auto repair shop. Nashville natives and Belmont University alumni will probably recognize the colorful repurposed benches from the former International Market on Belmont Boulevard. All interior design and woodwork was done in-house.
The exterior at Otto’s features a semi-covered patio decorated with string lights and greenery. Free parking is available in front of and behind the restaurant and on select side streets within the area.
Otto’s beverage menu consists of delicious and creative cocktails. Try the Old Fashioned (Rittenhouse Rye, sugar, Angostura Bitters, orange) and the Painkiller (Ron Hacienda Santa Ana Cask Strength Rum, pineapple juice, Créme de Coconut, nutmeg, cherry). A small food menu is available offering up 1980s tacos, nachos, guacamole, and chips and queso.
