Miranda Lambert will soon be the latest country star to open a namesake bar and restaurant on Nashville’s Lower Broadway, becoming the first female artist to do so.
Announcing her partnership with TC Restaurant Group via Nashville Business Journal on Wednesday (March 3), the music and food destination will be called Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa, and situated in downtown Music City’s tourist district. It will be located at 308 Broadway (next door to Whiskey Bent Saloon and on the same block as Blake Shelton’s Ole Red), and like the many other honk tonks nearby, it’ll be big.
“In true Miranda Lambert fashion, the two-time Grammy Award winning artist will make history in 2021 by partnering with TC Restaurant Group to become the first female country star to have a bar and restaurant on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee,” the announcement said.
Currently undergoing interior renovations, the building soon to house Lambert’s club was previously home to Crazy Town — a multi-level honky tonk with three floors of performance stages and an outdoor patio overlooking Broadway. The new report notes that more 17,000 square feet of space are being refurbished for Lambert’s Casa Rosa, including the addition of a new mezzanine and extra restrooms, plus upgrades to existing bar areas.
There’s no official word on the theme of the venue, but it’s name suggests something with a Mexican or Tejano flavor. And there’s also no word on when Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa will open, but more details are expected soon.
When it does open, the bar and restaurant will find Lambert joining peers who have also lent their names to Broadway clubs in recent years, including Shelton, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Kid Rock and more. The deals typically involve the star licensing their name to the venue, but largely leaving its management to an outside group. In related news, Lambert just announced a side-project album title The Marfa Tapes with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.
