Today, during Nashville press event hosted by the Opry Entertainment Group, Combs made his big announcement, revealing that he plans to open his own 60k+ square foot multi-level entertainment venue in 2024.


According to Colin Reed, executive chairman of Ryman Hospitalities, parent company to Opry Entertainment Group, the goal is to have the event space opened by 2024!


Stocktitan also reported that The 69,000-square-foot venture opens at 120 2nd Avenue N, taking the place of Wildhorse Saloon, a longtime Ryman-owned country bar and ticketed venue that opened in 1994 — decades before Lower Broadway is what it is now. "When you think about what goes on Broadway, this is going to be very different," Reed said. Plans for Combs' four-story bar include:

  • A 250-person honky-tonk space on the first floor;

  • A two-story ticketed concert hall that holds up to 1,500 showgoers;

  • A third-story sports bar catering to legalized sports betting;

  • Nods to Combs' fandom, including a bachelorette-themed area named after his hit song "Beautiful Crazy" and a section dedicated to his followers, the "Bootleggers";

  • An additional bar for high-end bourbon drinkers;

  • "The Still" and songwriter's lounge, a second-story bar nodding to Combs' backstage hangout space of the same name;

  • A 9,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor rooftop named the "Eye," in reference to Combs' aforementioned debut single "Hurricane."

"[Nashville] is such a destination now," Combs told The Tennessean. "It's kinda like redneck Vegas a little bit down here, you know what I mean? This space has an opportunity to scratch more than one itch for people. It's not just a bar. It's not just a concert venue. It's not just a sports bar. With the space, it can check a lot of boxes for a lot of different people."

Building renovations may not begin until late 2023 or early 2024, Reed said. The Wildhorse Saloon plans to remain open during redevelopment.
