After much anticipation, Fat Bottom Brewery opens today in The Nations neighborhood! If you visited their East Nashville location, this concept is completely different (to confirm: the concept may be different, the beer is still delish!).
Fat Bottom 2.0 features a pet-friendly patio/courtyard, ready for live music and cornhole; The Hop Yard Restaurant, which offers a full menu; an upstairs lounge that overlooks the brewery and has outside balcony seating; and finally, The Reserve, a gorgeous event space that doubles during pleasant weather by rolling up the giant doors that open into the courtyard.
What’s particularly lovely about this project is the amount of preservation that went into it; they preserved where they could and re-purposed when they couldn’t (those trellises in the courtyard are actually old window frames from the original building).
“Everyone here at Fat Bottom is so excited to finally open our doors to the neighborhood!” says owner Ben Bredesen. “We are looking forward to meeting our neighbors and showing all of Nashville why we chose to move to the Nations.”
Open Monday–Thursday from 4:00 p.m.–midnight, Saturdays from 10:00 a.m.–midnight, and Sundays from 10:00 a.m.–10:00 p.m.
