Garth Brooks Announces Opening Date for Friends in Low Places Bar

The wait is almost over for Garth Brooks‘ new Friends in Low Places bar and music venue. The Country Music Hall of Fame member, who hosted a live music event at the venue while it was still under construction on Black Friday, just announced that Friends in Low Places will officially open at 411 Broadway on Thursday, March 7.

“If you are one of the lucky ones who come to this town and receive its many blessings, don’t you owe something to Nashville?”  Brooks says. “Garth Brooks owes a lot to Music City.”

Trisha Yearwood, who will be on hand to officially open Friends in Low Places with her husband, is taking over much of the menu items that will be served. The menus will be hand-crafted by Yearwood, featuring many of her own creations, including those featured in her cookbooks and her Trisha’s Southern Kitchen show, airing on Food Network. The menu items will be available from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM, seven days a week.

“I can’t imagine there being a Garth honky-tonk without Trisha food!” Yearwood adds. “I’m honored to get to be a part of something so exciting and so big, and to work alongside the love of my life doing it. The whole team at Friends In Low Places is incredible!”

Brooks also shared a video on social media, detailing the new space.

Brooks previously revealed that Friends in Low Places, with 54,715 square feet, will truly have something for everyone, regardless of their interests and tastes.

“The first floor is just, bring your helmet,” Brooks shared last year on Inside Studio G. “It’s going to be crazy. The second floor gives you a little break from it, but it’s still right in your face. The third floor is just going to be Trisha Yearwood classic cool. That’s going to be where all the best food is. That’s going to be where everything is. But the fourth floor, The Oasis, up on top, that’s gonna be where the party’s at. This should be fun.”

Friends in Low Places also includes a police substation, which was developed in partnership with the Metro Nashville Police Department.

In a sea of celebrity-owned bars, restaurants and music venues, Brooks firmly believes that his Friends in Low Places will stand out above the others.

“Friends In Low Places will be the Chick-Fil-A of honky-tonks,” Brooks predicted (via The Tennessean). “I want a thumping, crazy place where people feel good — but they’re also safe, loved, comfortable, and are treated well with good manners.”

It’s fitting that Brooks is opening Friends in Low Places with Yearwood, since he recently admitted he doesn’t like to do much of anything without her.

“I think this is something you ‘discover’ over time,” Brooks shared. “There is the falling in love, dreams of what it would be like together…I get that. But after you get together, how do you feel when you are apart? THAT is what made me understand who my soulmate was and is. She is my cape and my Kryptonite. I can do anything when she is beside me and nothing when she’s not.”

Friends in Low Places will be open seven days a week, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 AM Monday through Friday, and 10:00 AM to 2:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday. Find more information at
