The highly-anticipated Opry City Stage is set to open Friday, December 1, marking a historic moment for country music and for country music’s most iconic brand, the Grand Ole Opry.
The Opry’s first “home away from home,” Opry City Stage boasts a four-level live music and dining space that combines the show that made country music famous with the world’s largest cultural hub, New York City. The dining experience, led by a culinary team managed by the renowned Bromberg Brothers, the company led by Bruce and Eric Bromberg of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, will feature elevated Southern comfort food.
Located at 1604 Broadway in the heart of Times Square, the 28,000 square-foot complex will feature a two-story restaurant, bar and performance stage that occupy the second and third floor, an intimate, world-class concert space – The Studio at Opry City Stage – on its fourth floor and a ground floor retail space. In addition to a full slate of live music, select performances from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville will be live-streamed on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays beginning December 1, marking the first time these performances from the Opry will be seen regularly by fans outside the iconic live show in Music City.
The menu at Opry City Stage, created by the Bromberg Brothers, draws from the rich and soulful cuisine of the South. It has a modern, bold and playful take on the dishes of the region. Signature dishes include Pimento Cheese Dip served with saltine crackers and celery; Biscuit Basket with cinnamon butter and honey; Smoked Corn Chowder with cheddar cheese and green onions; Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich with pickles on a brioche bun; and Honky Tonk which includes brisket, ribs, cheddar sausage, pulled pork, chicken, skillet corn, mac & cheese and hush puppies served with coleslaw, pickles and Texas Toast. Opry City Stage will also be the exclusive restaurant offering the Grand Ole Opry inspired beer, “Hopry,” created by Nashville’s own Yazoo Brewery.
The venue will bring the sounds of today’s country music to Times Square on New Year’s Eve with performances by CMA-nominated LoCash. The hit-making duo will appear for two shows, with packages on sale today at oprycitystage.com.
