Florida Georgia Line is adding to the busy downtown Nashville scene with their very first restaurant and entertainment destination, a four-story attraction in the city's trendy SoBro district called FGL House. The establishment is set to open in early summer with something for every customer — a menu featuring Southern style cuisine with California flair, Nashville's largest rooftop level called "Cruise," and a basement-level lounge, complete with its own baby grand piano and a cocktail menu inspired by ‘90s pop culture and specialty martinis. Of course, FGL House will feature the duo's Old Camp whiskey.
The new complex will also house a massive video wall that will continuously showcase videos from FGL and other country stars as well as various sporting events. Dee Jay Silver has signed on to spin custom country mixes during Country Club Tuesdays.
Tyler Hubbard said, “We want FGL HOUSE to be just as welcoming, fun and entertaining for our guests as if they were coming out to one of our shows – nothing but good food, good drinks and good times! We can’t wait for opening day to get here!”
FGL House is just one of the duo's entreprenurial ventures. Tyler and Brian Kelley also have a publishing company together in addition to Old Camp whiskey, while Brian and his wife created the Tribe Kelley line of clothing. Tyler and Brian tell us these businesses are just an extension of their creativity. ["I think right now we're just really trying to focus on continuing to better ourselves and not overwhelm ourselves and not take on too much and not have too many eggs in too many different baskets but also making sure we're doing just enough to make sure we can feed that creative side of who we are and the entrepeneurial side of who we are and the businessmen that we want to be, you know? (Brian) I think right now, like Tyler said, there's just quality control. Whatever we put our hands on we want it to be the best and so when it comes to whiskey, when it comes to music, it comes to clothes or it comes to music publishing, I think we want the best writers, we want the best tasting whiskey . . . I think it's all about putting yourself with a great team with the same vision on the same frequency, so we're passionate, so I think in a way, like Tyler said, less is more, but what we want to do, we want to be really passionate and make sure the quality is there."] SOUNDCUE (:46 OC: . . . quality is there.)
FGL's new Smooth tour with Nelly and Chris Lane kicks off on June 2nd in Austin, TX.
