A brief but enthusiastic post on the Edley's Facebook page states: "We're excited to announce we will be opening a second location. East Nashville here we come! 900 Main Street next to Fat Bottom Brewery. Thank you Nashville!!"
Edley's co-owner Catharine Newman confirmed the plan for the new location, but didn't share any details yet.
The address refers to the redeveloped Fluffo mattress warehouse at Ninth and Main streets. As mentioned, Fat Bottom Brewing is another tenant at the site. That brewery, the project of entrepreneur and political scion Ben Bredesen, is expected to open soon. (Bredesen is scheduled to go before a final beer board meeting later this month.)
The other announced tenant for the site is Broadcast Brewing Co., which won't open until this fall. We're told the breweries will share a central beer garden. Barbecue sounds like the perfect complement.
Bites will keep you posted as we learn more.
