pour house bourbon, burgers & brews is the latest in the craze of creating the perfect burger sweeping the city. it will be housed in the former location of arts & petals at 730 eighth avenue next door to flyte. the creative minds behind the process are businessman david purcell, contractor dave shelton, & previous silly goose partner, mandy mcneill.
the design plans include an indoor/outdoor bar, lots of patio seating and various table elevations to break up the 4,000 square foot space. the initial plan is to also include a live concert space on the back of the building (in front of frugal mcdoogal) but everything is still pending approval with metro. no opening date has been set yet.
in other news, the nashville post reported that germantown cafe east restaurant, who once sat on the street level of the fifth & main development in east nashville, has been sold to nashville restauranteur emmanuel “manny” hatz. the troubled restaurant has been closed since june when jay luther, one of the co-owners, got trapped in a walk-in cooler and died from accidental suffocation by inhalation of carbon dioxide.
hatz, who is also a resident of the building, said the name, menu and details will be officially announced later but he plans to open in october.
