Ole Red Puts You in the Center of It All


Hosting an event in Nashville? Choose a versatile venue on Broadway, the heart of Music City’s entertainment district.

It’s hard to think about Nashville without picturing honky-tonks: Neon signs, music pouring from open windows, the electric buzz of a steel guitar. And that’s for good reason. Broadway, otherwise known as Honky-Tonk Row, has been the center of country music since the 1930’s. For nearly a century, aspiring musicians have fled to Broadway for their chance at being discovered, entertaining millions of visitors along the way. 

Today, dozens of honky-tonks, restaurants, and shops call Broadway home. You can find crowds bustling along the street’s sidewalks year round, listening to live music and enjoying a drink or two. And in the middle of it all stands Broadway’s tallest venue: Ole Red.

Created in partnership with country music mega-star Blake Shelton, Ole Red stands four stories tall and includes a restaurant, performance stage, retail space, and a rooftop bar. It’s the perfect venue to infuse upscale Nashville culture into any event, large or small, buttoned-up or casual.
