“Easy Street” is replacing the former Beef O’ Brady’s restaurant in Cool Springs. The new restaurant will offer an upscale, J. Alexanders style menu, while priced more moderately. Great steaks and fresh grilled entrees will be a few of their menu features.
We’re happy to welcome a new bar and grill to the area!
A new mirrored finish adorns the exterior windows of the restaurant, located in a retail center on Carothers Blvd. Additional upgrades such as new crown molding and re-branding the inside from the former Beef O’ Brady’s are currently underway.
We’re looking forward to another great restaurant in Cool Springs, but Easy Street has a few challenges right out of the gate.
Although the retail center is close to the “heart of Cool Springs”, its physical location sits back from the road, offering little visibility. Parking is not plentiful and is very tight at certain times of the day. No doubt that Easy Street will fare better in the evenings when other tenants have closed (for parking).
The real kicker is that the retail center is technically just over the boundary, located in the city of Brentwood, rather than Franklin.
What is the real significance of Brentwood vs. Franklin to a bar or restaurant owner?
The city of Brentwood does not allow alcohol served after midnight, while the city of Franklin allows alcohol sales until 3am.
That means the owner of Easy Street will not be competing for the late night drink business with other bars located on Carothers Blvd including Tin Roof 2, Dan McGuinness Irish Pub, Swanky’s Taco Shop, Cajun Steamers and the newly opened Cool Springs Losers 2.
A strong menu, great service and reasonable prices will be critical for success in this location. A proactive, aggressive social media presence and campaign wouldn’t hurt either.
Easy Street, we’re looking forward to your grand opening!
