Barista Parlor’s owner Andy Mumma is expanding his caffeinated empire once again — announcing a partnership with the much-anticipated upcoming W Hotel, under construction in the Gulch.
The coffee shop is the third food/beverage tenant announced for the luxury hotel, joining NoHo Hospitality Group and chef Andrew Carmellini’s Italian chophouse and a Nashville outpost of NY-based The Dutch. Details are still sparse on the Italian restaurant, but The Dutch is known for its oysters and raw bar, and, yep, fried chicken. The W Nashville is located at the corner of 12th Avenue South and Pine, at 300 12th Ave. South.
This will be the second outpost of the city’s popular coffee shop, just a few blocks away from the Golden Sound location, which Mumma promised Eater would remain open. Mumma said BP x W Nashville would be aimed more towards tourists and hotel guests — keeping the Golden Sound location (hopefully) more for work-from-home locals and neighborhood dwellers.
Nashville’s best-known coffee house on a national level, owner Andy Mumma opened the original Barista Parlor on the east side in 2012, which quickly made a name for itself in the high-end coffee world. Since then Mumma has opened locations in the Gulch, Germantown, and Marathon Village, as well as Drug Store Coffee in the lobby of recently opened downtown boutique hotel Noelle.
