My Morning Jacket Drummer Opening Kentucky Restaurant

A member of My Morning Jacket is trying his hand at the restaurant business.

Patrick Hallahan, the drummer for the Louisville, Kentucky-based rock band, is opening a restaurant in his hometown with two other partners.

The new Butchertown Grocery is set to open in November in the city’s historic Butchertown neighborhood. The bar and restaurant, housed in a century-old building, will also be owned by Bobby Benjamin, who will act as executive chef, and lawyer Jon Salomon.

A release from the business team says Hallahan is bringing “a unique character and soul to the restaurant.”

The casual dining restaurant will have a cocktail lounge with live music. It is set to open in November.
