We spoke with Broadway Brewhouse today and they expect the Cool Springs location to open January, 2011.
It hasn’t been any real secret for those who have passed and seen the huge blue pickup truck parked out front, truck bed (filled with kegs?) with “Broadway Brewhouse” stenciled across the back tailgate.
The restaurant outparcel Broadway Brewhouse will soon call home, is located at 1855 Galleria Blvd, adjacent to the Cool Springs Galleria and Cool Springs Harley Davidson dealership.
The former Texas Roadhouse location is owned, managed and leased by CBL. It has been sitting vacant ever since Texas Roadhouse left. Located between the Cool Springs Galleria and I-65, the new Broadway Brewhouse restaurant location will benefit from mall traffic visibility and the high car count on I-65.
Broadway Brewhouse is known for a large, diverse offering of beers on tap in addition to a pretty good menu. In terms of competition, they’ll be going head to head with Tin Roof 2, Jonathon’s Grille and Mineo’s for the Cool Springs sports bar crowd.
Jonathon’s Grille has been in Cool Springs for a long time and enjoyed a fairly steady crowd of “regulars”. Broadway Brewhouse will no doubt affect Jonathon’s business, given the close proximity of each other’s location and similarity in concept. Common denominators between the two are the massive selection of beers on tap and both are known for a great food (above and beyond stereotypical “bar food”).
Of course any bar or restaurant opening in Cool Springs enjoys the “new place to go” shine for at least the first few months. It’s 6 to 12 months after opening when things start to gel that we get a feel for whether they’ll be sticking around. Only time will tell, but based on the success of their locations elsewhere in Nashville, Broadway Brewhouse is in Cool Springs for the long haul.
Broadway Brewhouse currently has 4 locations in the Nashville area, 2 locations on Broadway, 1 on Charlotte Pike and 1 on Hwy 100.
The Cool Springs Broadway Brewhouse will be their 5th location in Middle Tennessee.
Let’s wish them a warm welcome to Cool Springs!
