And as members of this Volunteer State, we want to keep our doors open to help feed our community. To protect against the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are shortening our hours and limiting our menu. We are also extending our tornado relief efforts for the time being.
You can read more about the detailed precautions that we are taking to protect against the spread of the virus here: https://bit.ly/2ITSPWW

Yesterday's Article: "We are in it for the fight. We will continue business until a legal authority tells us we have to padlock our doors and shut down," the owner Steve Smith In response, Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Rippy’s, Honky Tonk Central, Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk & Steakhouse and The Diner will continue to remain open to serve the public until such statewide mandate is issued from the Governor of Tennessee." attorney said.
“We appreciate the efforts of Mayor Cooper to combat the COVID-19 virus, but unless there’s a statewide mandate that directs all bars and restaurants to be closed, the request made by Mayor Cooper is unconstitutional as he is targeting a select group of businesses.
"A lot of these individuals have car notes, have rent to pay, utility bills to pay, and to come in and indiscriminately shut our businesses down and shut off our revenue stream will cause a major hardship to all of these employees and musicians," Lewis said.
Lewis stressed that if employees are sick or feel uncomfortable going to work, the company will respect their decision. As long as an employee was legitimately sick or had a concern that they had symptoms, they will get paid.
Like many other businesses, there's been an effort to sanitize and wipe everything down as an extra precaution. Lewis said they are working to shut down certain dance floors to allow for social distancing.
However, there are businesses in support of the mandate for now. Ole Red temporarily suspended operations already hours after the mayor's announcement. Will Newman of Edley's Bar-B-Que and Pancho & Lefty's Cantina outside of Bridgestone Arena said he doesn't envy the position to make crucial decisions like this.
"We want to be a partner with local health officials to make sure we're doing whatever we can to limit the spread as quickly as possible," Newman said.

City Winery - CLOSED - To combat the spread of the virus, we are complying with the momentum and taking the important but painful step of temporarily ceasing all City Winery operations nationally until further notice. As an organization, we have been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to find a way to be able to operate safely and responsibly so that we can support our employees, guests, and artistic community. We have tried to set an example for how to balance safe social distancing without total hibernation. But at this point, we are heartbroken to admit that we no longer believe that this is possible. We do not take this decision lightly, and we recognize the profound impact it will have on thousands of lives. We intend to support our temporarily suspended team members as best we can by continuing our contributions to their health insurance premiums. Taking care of our communities is part of the City Winery DNA, and this step, though painful, is a necessary one. We will continue to communicate with you on our efforts during this crisis, and we look forward to sharing hopeful news of upcoming shows and re-opening soon. In the meantime - if you have tickets to a show that has been cancelled or postponed, but have not yet heard from us - we apologize. Please know that we will be reaching out to you as soon as we can with more information. This is an incredibly difficult time and we appreciate your patience.
Exit/In - CLOSED - Damn Nashville, its been a rough run; and for the time being, Exit/In is closed. We're practicing social distancing, and hope you do too. The more action we take now, the sooner we can all get back to our lives, hopefully happier, healthier, and with more live music than before! WE NEED YOUR HELP! Many of our staff are out of jobs. Please support our Exit/In & Hurry Back family with a donation. This money will go directly to security, bar, technical, and kitchen staff. PLEASE PLEASE GIVE ANYTHING YOU CAN HERE -> http://bit.ly/2IMqthd It's not just our staff who need your help. The bills are still coming in, but our revenue has stopped. Please support Exit/In by purchasing some of our great merchandise! Here > https://store.exitin.com/collections/all-products
One last ask - if you have tickets to a cancelled or postponed show, please consider NOT requesting a refund. All purchased tickets will be valid for rescheduled dates and if the show is outright cancelled, we really could use the revenue. We understand this is a lot to ask, but appreciate your consideration. We're hopeful federal, state, and local aid packages will kick in at some point. Until then, we'll keep trying to find ways for you to SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC (keep an eye out for our live streams). We love you Nashville! - EXIT/IN
