The fine folks at the Nashville Cream dropped the news yesterday about yet another new Nashville venue which is going to be partially owned and operated by Nashville musician William Tyler and family. The name of this new juke joint will be The Stone Fox (located here). You can head over to the Cream to read the rest of that fine write up.
Ok, so now that you read that, let’s discuss the details. It is going to house approximately 200-250 of you scenesters, and will have music a couple of nights a week “to fill the void” of venues of that size in Nashville. Ok, I’m no braniac, but there seems to be more stages than “decent” bands for venues of that size around Nashville. It sounds an awful lot like the idea that was brewing with The Humdrum in East Nashville, which is now is apparently just a fleeting memory. During the nights without bands, The Stone Fox plans to keep it real (ala Santas or FooBAR). Drinks you say… yes, we love our drinks. You can have a $2 PBR while your girlfriend, who sighs everytime you drag her to yet another smoky dive bar, can have $12 Patterson House-style cocktails. Wait, did you say a food-truck model of eats, too?
What’s to lose, it sounds freakin’ awesome. It’s like a hipster paradise that west side working stiffs can swing by too. I just hope these guys are fully set to be a bar and brick & mortar food truck first, because I don’t particularly see the void in venues.
Pessimism aside, you can guys can rest assured that I will spend lots of my hard earned money at this fine new establishment that you tempt me with. Welcome!
