Lainey Wilson Unveils Opening Date For New Nashville Bell Bottoms Up Bar

Nashville, the heart of country music, is about to welcome a vibrant new venue that promises to encapsulate the spirit of its namesake: Bell Bottoms Up, the latest brainchild of country music’s reigning queen, Lainey Wilson. This exciting announcement follows the recent closure of FGL House, leaving fans curious about who would next fill the coveted spot on Third Avenue, just off Broadway.

Lainey Wilson, the celebrated Queen of Bell Bottom Country and the reigning Entertainer of the Year at both the CMA and ACM Awards, revealed on May 7th that she would be opening her very own bar in the space formerly occupied by FGL House. This new hotspot is not just a bar but a promise of unforgettable nights and an embodiment of Wilson's unique style and southern roots.

A New Partnership with TC Restaurant Group

Bell Bottoms Up will be brought to life in partnership with TC Restaurant Group, the hospitality giant behind other renowned Nashville bars like Luke’s 32 Bridge, Jason Aldean’s Kitchen & Rooftop Bar, Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa, and Morgan Wallen’s This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen. While the artists themselves might not own these venues, their spirit and branding create an authentic atmosphere that resonates with fans and visitors alike.

What to Expect at Bell Bottoms Up

According to Billboard, Bell Bottoms Up will be a multifaceted experience. The bar will boast two stages and four bars, ensuring there’s never a dull moment. Highlights include:

  • A mezzanine floor featuring a bar lounge with a perfect view of the first-floor stage and a cozy dining area.

  • A rooftop level adorned with a 1970s western-inspired aesthetic, complete with a dance floor, disco-inspired decor, and a variety of frozen drinks.

  • A basement-level space reflecting Wilson’s Louisiana roots, set to open this summer. This area will feature craft cocktails and a dedicated live music space, providing an intimate setting for performances.

Quick Turnaround for Opening

Lainey Wilson has shared via her social media channels that Bell Bottoms Up will open its doors on May 31st, a remarkably swift turnaround following the closure of FGL House. This quick launch suggests minimal structural changes were needed, focusing instead on a thematic transformation to align with Wilson’s vibrant persona and aesthetic.

A Grand Opening to Remember

The opening date is particularly significant as it coincides with the kickoff of Wilson’s "Country's Cool Again" tour at Ascend Amphitheater, just down the street. This synchrony not only celebrates the new venue but also marks an important milestone in Wilson’s career, providing fans with an opportunity to immerse themselves in her world both on stage and off.

Nashville’s nightlife is about to get a whole lot groovier with the addition of Bell Bottoms Up. Whether you’re a longtime Lainey Wilson fan or just looking for a great time in Music City, this new venue promises a blend of lively entertainment, distinctive style, and a taste of southern charm. Mark your calendars for May 31st and get ready to raise a glass to Nashville’s newest hotspot!
