The TC Restaurant Group, which teamed with Morgan Wallen to open his Nashville bar, “This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen,” during Memorial Day weekend, has announced that the opening has been postponed to an unspecified date.

The bar, located at 107 4th Ave. N., won’t open this weekend as planned, according to representatives for TC Restaurant Group. The organization has tie-ups with a few other celebrity bars, including from Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean.

A statement from Wallen’s This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen issued to Billboard reads, “We’re proud of our team who has worked tirelessly to prepare Morgan Wallen’s This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen for opening. The ground-up construction of a six-story venue launching with hundreds of team members is a tremendous amount of work and a complex process.”

The statement continues, “When we open, we want This Bar to be an exceptional experience for guests. Unfortunately, the process requires more time, and we are not able to open and provide that experience this Memorial Day weekend. Rest assured it will be well worth the wait. We look forward to welcoming guests soon.”

Billboard quotes a source as saying that the restaurant/bar is awaiting final inspections but declined to address whether TC Restaurant Group had been denied a catering license, as had been reported by online site, Scoop Nashville, or had even applied yet.

However, the source has reportedly confirmed that the postponement of the grand opening is not related to the Nashville Metro Council’s decision to deny approval for an external sign for the bar.

On Tuesday (May 21), the Nashville Metro Council rejected plans for Wallen’s 20-foot external sign-labeled an “aerial encroachment” that would have encroached on the sidewalk, which is city property, for the six-story building.
