Heaven’s Door Distillery and Center for the Arts — a whiskey library, restaurant, and live performance venue — expects to open in SoBro next year, according to The Spirits Business.

The distillery, restaurant, and venue announced in 2018 plans to convert the 160-year-old church located at 410 Elm Street.

360 seats will fill the live performance venue. The arts center will feature Dylan’s paintings and metalwork sculptures.

Introduced in April of last year, Heaven’s Door is a collaboration between singer-songwriter Bob Dylan and Angel’s Envy Bourbon founder Marc Bushala. The Heaven’s Door range includes Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Double Barrel Whiskey and Straight Rye Whiskey and most recently, a limited edition 10-year-old Tennessee Bourbon.

In August last year, Bourbon producer Heaven Hill filed a lawsuit against Heaven’s Door for trademark infringement.
