It pays to have friends in high places — and to be a NASHtoday subscriber, of course.
Here’s a sneak peek of Garth Brooks’ Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk, which opens on Friday, Nov. 24 with a kick-off concert by the man himself + support from Ronnie Dunn. Note: Only fans who won tickets to the concert portion of the soft opening will have the first opportunity to step inside.
Music to our ears — even if you didn’t score tickets, you can watch the Dive Bar show after the Dolphins vs. Jets game on Prime Video the same day. Brooks said to expect a variety of new and old favorites.
At a press conference Monday morning, Brooks announced that the first two floors will soft open over the weekend and partially remain open.
“If we can stay open on weekends, we’ll see if we can go past New Year’s, maybe into Valentine’s [Day], shut back down again, and then in March, open this whole thing up, all five floors,” he said.
This is no black tie affair. “There’s one word in ‘Friends in Low Places’ that everyone sings louder than anything else,” Brooks said. “It’s Oasis — that’s the rooftop of this bar.”
Take the “Stairway to Seven” all the way to the roof for what’s described as a “beachy” vibe. As you’ve begun to notice, every name has a special meaning. Brooks has won Entertainer of the Year seven times, and even celebrated that last award at Paradise Park — which formerly called the building home.
You’ll find the main stage on the first floor, and pro tip from Brooks, the “best seat in the house” is on the second floor looking down at the action.
