🍺 Bottoms up at Teddy’s Tavern

Teddy’s Tavern, a concept by Fat Bottom Brewing, is the latest bar to open on Lower Broadway. It’s tucked away from the bustling row of honky tonks — 104 Rep. John Lewis Way S. across from Bridgestone Arena — and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.

The three-story space honors the original design of the building, uncovering exposed beams, brick, floors, and fireplaces. Like its honky tonkin’ neighbors, you can expect different offerings on each level:
  • The first floor taps into the historical elements of the building, featuring a small, more traditional country stage, a main bar, and food service.
  • Head to the second floor for a “quieter, intimate spot” with a small stage fit for a single musician.
  • The rooftop is a place to grab seated cocktails and drinks with views of Broadway.
