Eric Church Opening ‘Chief’s’ Bar and Venue in Downtown Nashville

Announced this morning, Eric Church is partnering with real estate and hospitality entrepreneur Ben Weprin as co-owners of new six-story property Chief’s at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Broadway in downtown Nashville.

“I remember driving through downtown Nashville over 20 years ago with a pawn shop guitar, riding shotgun in a beat-to-hell truck just trying to chase a dream,” Church recalls in a press release. “Chief’s is the culmination of catching that dream. Like everything else we do in our career, I wouldn’t even attempt a project like this if I didn’t think it would be the best, so that’s what Chief’s will be: the best.”


The property has plans to include an intimate, seated live venue as well as honoring his Carolina roots by working with renowned Charleston pitmaster and James Beard Award winner Rodney Scott who will bring his Whole Hog BBQ to the venue.


Although there is no exact date set for opening, they are hoping for a 2022 opening.
