The 26,000 square foot entertainment venue is the second location to open, following Ole Red Tishomingo in Blake’s hometown. The two-story bar and restaurant contains a retail area, performance space, dance floor, private VIP booths and a private event space – The Hall at Ole Red.

If that’s not enough the new venue comes complete with a 6,000-square-foot rooftop with an indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant called The Lookout at Ole Red. Patrons will be able to take in the sights and sounds of downtown Nashville while enjoying specially made cocktails such as the Tishomingo Sunset and Cumberland Punch.
