Virgin Entering Nashville

Richard Branson’s Virgin Hotels is entering Nashville with the purchase of a Music Row site that will house a 240-room hotel.

The property will include an entertainment venue and veranda with views of the city, a recording studio, and a hybrid bar/lounge called the Commons Club, according to the Tennessean.

Though a groundbreaking has yet to be set, Virgin Hotels is reportedly aiming for a 2017 opening date.
