It’ll feature a dining area, a full-scale kitchen, a bar and a music venue that will seat at least 700 people.

“I think the timing is good to build a performance venue here because when people come to Nashville there’s a lot to do – but I  think there’s room for another venue,” Stevens told News 2.

Stevens said he hopes to open the venue in October.
