Opry City Stage puts a little Nashville in Midtown New York City

The Grand Ole Opry is making New York City its “home away from home” with a new destination for country music fans.

For the first time in its more than 90 years of showcasing country music artists, the Grand Ole Opry is expanding beyond its Nashville
roots into the heart of New York with Opry City Stage.

Opening Dec. 1 just a block north of Times Square at 1604 Broadway, Opry City Stage is a Hard Rock Cafe-style venue
where memorabilia meets live performances in a restaurant setting.

Spanning four stories, Opry City Stage is a shrine to country music memorabilia and folk art, including over 300 photos from the
Opry’s archives. Exhibits about the art and culture of country musicians will rotate through, starting with Iconic Fashions from the
Opry Archives featuring decades of outfits worn by performers like Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Taylor Swift.

While the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville is a theater-style concert venue, Opry City Stage is first and foremost a restaurant,
so you’ll have to commit to a meal to see the goods. The heart of the venue is a two-story restaurant, bar and performance stage
that spans the second and third floors.

The top floor houses a more intimate (but still restaurant-style) concert space called The Studio at Opry City Stage;
the ground floor is a gift shop.

There will be free and ticketed performances, including livestreamed acts straight from the Grand Ole Opry stage —
the first time these performances are broadcast anywhere.

New Yorkers might need some square dancing pointers first though. Good thing we just gave the heave-ho to the Cabaret Law.
