Yeehaw, country music fans! Get ready to dust off your cowboy boots and head on over to Lower Broadway for the latest honky tonk concept to hit Nashville.
That’s right, a new bar inspired by the legendary Hank Williams Jr. is set to take over 419 Broadway, right between the Ernest Tubb Record Shop and AJ’s Good Time Bar.
This exciting news comes from a permit that was filed on Sunday (April 23), which means that the opening date is still a mystery. However, rumor has it that we could be dancing and singing to some good ol’ country tunes at the bar within the next year.
The future Hank Williams Jr. Boogie Bar is the brainchild of Josh and Tara Joseph, the powerhouse couple behind Big Plan Holdings investment group.
They’ve teamed up with property owner Brad Sanderson, who bought the building back in 2018 for a cool $1.3 million. These folks know what they’re doing, as they’ve got strong ties across various Nashville industries, including music publishing and cannabis companies.
Plus, they own the neighboring property at 405 Broadway, which they snagged for a whopping $9.4 million just last year. Now, let’s talk about what we can expect from this exciting new venue.
The permit indicates that the space will undergo a renovation that will add a rooftop deck and an extra story to the building, bringing the total square footage to 11,895.
While we don’t have all the juicy details about the live music and bar offerings just yet, we do know that they’re still in the early stages of development.
So keep your eyes peeled for updates, and don’t forget to follow them on social media once they’re up and running (which we hope will be soon!).
Overall, we’re beyond excited to have another honky tonk concept inspired by a country music legend on Lower Broadway. While we may have to wait until 2024 for the grand opening, we know that it’ll be well worth the wait.
So grab your friends, put on your best cowboy hat, and get prepare yourself to boogie down at the Hank Williams Jr. Boogie Bar when it opens!
