Eric Church Shows Plans for New Bar in Nashville

Eric Church alongside real estate and hospitality entrepreneur partner Ben Weprin have shared the first detailed rendering of their upcoming bar, restaurant and live music venue called Chief's. Construction of the six-story establishment is still underway on Lower Broadway in Nashville's downtown area. Chief's is scheduled to open sometime next year.


Chief’s will feature a ticketed music venue plus additional live entertainment throughout the building and unique decor elements such as more than 3,000 concert posters from throughout Eric's career papering the ground floor. Chief’s will also house a studio for live broadcasting, inclusive of Eric’s Outsiders Radio SiriusXM channel, with the capability of hosting broadcasts by various media partners.


The venue also reflects Eric's North Carolina roots in partnership with James Beard Award Winning Pitmaster Rodney Scott. His restaurant, Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ, will overlook downtown with its rooftop offering.


Eric said, “I’ve had a blast working with Ben on the design of Chief’s. Like everything we do with our music, the same care and consideration has gone into every detail of this place. It will be unrivaled downtown. I can’t wait to play here.”
