UPDATED (12/22/16): Representatives for The Back Corner have passed along more details regarding the new bar and music lounge. The space consists of a 1,300-square-foot main level with two 250-square-foot balconies overlooking a 225-square-foot slightly raised stage. Overall capacity is 160 guests, with room for more during special events. Currently in soft opening mode, live acts are being lined up, with shows expected to begin in January with a minimum of three acts per week by February.
The opening menus are now live online, offering a list of classic and house cocktails ranging in price from $7 to $12. A few wines by the glass and bottled beers are also available, with the full bottle list from 5th & Taylor also on offer. The kitchen menu consists of a short list of small plates including tuna tartare, duck rillette and more.
Hours are Monday through Saturday from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Daniel Lindley, the chef and restaurateur behind Germantown’s 5th & Taylor, opened his newest Nashville project over the weekend with little fanfare, as The Back Corner debuted this past Friday night.
Located directly behind 5th & Taylor, the bar and live music venue, the neighborhood’s first, certainly appears to be a departure from the city’s typical live music joints, offering much more of a sleek club vibe and promising a house DJ, as well as non-country musical acts.
Menus are not yet available online, but an opening announcement post from Friday promises a full bar with both cocktail and small plates menus, with The Back Corner utilizing 5th & Taylor’s kitchen.
The interior (see below) is a two-tiered space with a diamond-shaped center bar, a stage and screen at the far end and a custom sculpture suspended from the ceiling by Chattanooga-based artist and frequent Lindley collaborator Cessna Decosimo.
Eater has reached out to Lindley’s team for more information, but additional details have not yet been passed on. Open days and business hours are also unknown, so be sure to call 5th & Taylor for info. And if you go, be sure to send along any intel to the tipline.
