Sinatra Bar and Lounge
Nashville Scene reports that, “When Bill and Shannon Miller opened their first project in Nashville, the Johnny Cash Museum, it came thanks to Bill’s lifelong connection to and admiration of the Man in Black.
“In the decade since, the Millers and their Icon Entertainment have transformed Nashville’s entertainment offerings, adding the Patsy Cline Museum and Nudie’s Honky Tonk, renovating the storied Skull’s Rainbow Room, and launching the magic-themed House of Cards.”
Now, Icon Entertainment will open its newest venture, Sinatra Bar and Lounge.
In collaboration with Frank Sinatra Enterprises, this two-story concept will operate inside the historic Southern Turf building, a Queen Anne structure built in 1839 in downtown’s Printers Alley.
The building “with its ornamental stonework, will continue to be home to Skull’s on its lower level, facing Printers Alley, plus the new Fourth Avenue North Sinatra Bar and Lounge and six upper-level Southern Turf Lofts. The fourth floor will house a private membership club; members will have preferred access to all of the Icon Entertainment venues,” adds Nashville Scene.
The dining menu will offer many favorites of the “Chairman of the Board,” including traditional Italian dishes and steaks. These will be complemented by libations and careful attention to aesthetic detail.
Even Sinatra’s daughters Nancy and Tina Sinatra have weighed in.
“We are thrilled that our Dad, who loved good songs, good food and good spirits, will now be part of Music City’s creative and vibrant landscape.
“The stately Southern Turf landmark is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and once housed a speakeasy and saloon; how cool is that?”
This is so cool it gives us high apple pie in the sky hopes.
Sinatra Bar and Lounge opens to the public Apr. 15, 2023.
