Located in Music City’s Germantown neighborhood, Brooklyn Bowl Nashville will open to physical audiences later this month.

At long last, Brooklyn Bowl Nashville will welcome physical audiences later this month. The new, 1,200-capacity venue, which properly opens with two Old Crow Medicine Shows on June 25 and 26, announced a robust fall lineup Tuesday, spanning prominent artists across many genres.

Highlights on the venue’s upcoming calendar include The Travelin’ McCourys (July 2), Langhorn Slim (Aug. 20), Lucy Dacus (Sept. 15), Dr. Dog (Sept. 28-29), Dinosaur Jr. (Nov. 12) and recent Pollstar cover subject girl in red (Mar. 8, 2022).

“We are so excited to open our doors, and so thankful for the support from Nashville over the last year,” Brooklyn Bowl co-founder Peter Shapiro said. “We can’t wait to show everyone what we are all about, and we hope this lineup reflects our excitement and commitment to providing Music City with an eclectic group of artists.”

Located in Music City’s Germantown neighborhood, Brooklyn Bowl Nashville follows existing Brooklyn Bowl locations in Brooklyn and Las Vegas. Announced in December 2019, adversity greeted the club, which was set to open March 14, 2020. A tornado struck Nashville in early March 2020 and, as Brooklyn Bowl Nashville made final preparations for its opening, the coronavirus pandemic effectively shut down the live industry.

“That happened, and then we got back up, and then this happened,” Shapiro told Pollstar in May 2020. “But we’re going to get back up again.”

To that end, Brooklyn Bowl Nashville staged its first show – albeit without an audience – on May 15, 2020, livestreaming a performance by Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires. The venue subsequently hosted several livestreamed shows, including Billy Strings, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and Margo Price.

But Brooklyn Bowl Nashville was built for in-person audiences, with a 19-lane-bowling alley, myriad food and craft beer options and an outdoor deck overlooked First Tennessee Park’s third base line.

“Nashville’s got these amazing venues,” Shapiro told Pollstar in 2019, “but probably not many brand new ones of this size and scale, with what comes with that: the power and the sound and the lighting and the screens. We’re excited to bring the energy that we’ve done over the last 10 years at the Bowl to Nashville.”
