NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Midtown’s Gold Rush Restaurant and Bar will be closed beginning Monday for renovations.

The restaurant, which is currently one of Nashville’s remaining smoking establishments, will be transformed into a non-smoking restaurant and will include other upgrades.

“Gold Rush has allowed smoking in the restaurant for 40 years, but it’s time to make a change,” co-owner Brian Gruber said. “We’re offering more fresh products, but losing the ashtrays. We want everyone in our neighborhood and city to enjoy the new food choices and craft cocktails in one of Nashville’s most beloved dining venues.”

In addition to the renovations, Gold Rush’s menu and bar services will also undergo changes.

Gruber said the restaurant will offer a “simpler, fresher menu, incorporating dishes with locally sourced, organic ingredients.”

Gold Rush, which opened in 1974, is located at 2205 Elliston Place.

The restaurant is expected to re-open in June.
