Nashville Live! to Take Over Former George Jones Building in Downtown Nashville

The complete renovation of the historic building will bring a multi-level dining and entertainment experience to Music City.  

The Cordish Companies has announced a major revitalization of the historic George Jones building to transform the space into Nashville Live!, a premier 50,000-square-foot, multi-level dining and entertainment experience.

“It is incredibly exciting for The Cordish Companies to announce this major entertainment district and revitalization project in the heart of historic 2nd Avenue in Downtown Nashville,” says Reed Cordish, principal of The Cordish Companies. “With five levels of new-to-market brands including DraftKings and PBR, two of the most exciting names in sports and entertainment, we are creating a premier dining, entertainment, music, and sports experience for Downtown.”

Slated to open in phases beginning this year, Nashville Live! will offer a multi-experience destination for Nashville’s thriving downtown district. Plans for the revitalized building span vertically across five levels and will feature a different concept on each floor including:  

  • DraftKings Sports & Social: The space will be highlighted by several LED media walls and signature bars that will allow guests to watch multiple games and sporting events at once. Guests can expect a full menu of elevated food items as well as a carefully crafted beverage menu featuring specialty cocktails and Sports & Social’s signature Crush drink. Game days will feature an electric environment with elements such as live fan-cams and industry-leading music and light effects. Eligible guests will enjoy DraftKings’ guest-friendly mobile platforms to place bets using the DraftKings Sportsbook app, along with playing daily fantasy sports from their mobile devices across various sports, including football, basketball, baseball, golf, MMA, soccer, tennis and more, all while watching multiple games live.
  • PBR Cowboy Bar: This will be a flagship location for PBR with the Nashville Stampede, one of eight teams in a new bull riding league, as one of their signature team cities. PBR Cowboy Bar will feature a professionally endorsed mechanical riding bull, multiple signature bars, private VIP booths, DJ entertainment, and live music.
  • AVA Rooftop Bar: An elevated rooftop venue, with unobstructed views of The Cumberland River, Nissan Stadium, and Downtown Nashville. Lined with lush greenery, expansive lounge-style seating, and dazzling lights, the Mediterranean-inspired oasis will offer a lively atmosphere with DJs and live music.
