City Winery has expanded its outdoor footprint in the form of a unique new addition to downtown Nashville’s cultural scene: the ​Music City Wine Garden​.

Guests are able to enjoy City Winery’s signature globally-inspired food and locally-produced wine seven nights a week in a stylish and comfortable outdoor atmosphere, under an open-air tent that protects from sun and rain while allowing guests to enjoy cool summer breezes. This ​8,000 sq. foot​ outdoor space will also feature live music several nights a week, with a lineup that includes talented musicians like ​Keb’ Mo’​, ​Lucinda Williams​, ​Anderson East​, and ​Rayland Baxter​.

“First and foremost – Music City Wine Garden is all about the safety of our guests and our employees. We want to provide a space for the Nashville community to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air with their friends and a glass of locally-made wine. Guests will be able to relax and enjoy world-class wine, delicious food, and musical performances in a safe, seated outdoor environment, thanks to our enhanced safety measures, table spacing, and face mask requirements.” said Michael Dorf, Founder and CEO of City Winery.

This new tented space also significantly increases City Winery Nashville’s outdoor private event hosting capabilities. With best-in-class live music production, delectable culinary creations, an award-winning wine program, and stunning views of Tennessee blue skies, Music City Wine Garden offers everything that event planners need to safely make a wedding, rehearsal dinner, corporate event, or elopement ceremony an unforgettable experience.

Music City Wine Garden will open at 4 pm Wednesday through Sunday, serving a full dinner menu until 10 pm (8 pm on Sunday). Brunch will be offered from 10:30 am – 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Dinner menu highlights include City Winery favorites ​Shrimp & Grits​ and ​Mushroom & Goat Cheese Risotto Balls​, while the brunch menu features a new ​”Bottomless Brunch​” option, where guests can enjoy two hours of unlimited mimosas, bloody marys or rosé for just $25 with the purchase of an entrée. The Wine Garden will also offer an extensive beverage menu that includes new ​large-format cocktails​ like a refreshing “Whiskey Mint Smash.” The socially-distanced, stylish dining areas feature tables spaced six feet apart, as well as VIP lounges and classic winery-inspired decor with vineyard ivy and authentic oak wine barrels.

Music City Wine Garden is also hosting socially distanced outdoor live music.

City Winery currently offers in-depth precautionary information on its website, including a ​detailed safety video​ about what guests can expect when dining, visiting, or enjoying live music in the downtown venue.
