Eat Prince’s Hot Chicken and Sip Moonshine at this Spacious New SoBro Complex

From the folks at Tennessee-based Ole Smoky Distillery and Yee-Haw Brewing

Downtown Nashville has a massive new 30,000-square-feet of food, drinks, and entertainment available in 6th & Peabody — a tasting room, live music, and outdoor game destination from the folks at Tennessee-based Ole Smoky Distillery and Yee-Haw Brewing.

Found appropriately, at the intersection of 6th and Peabody in SoBro, 6th & Peabody offers expansive indoor and outdoor stages and seating areas, moonshine and beer flight tastings, and one of the largest TV screens in the city.

Located at 423 6th Avenue, visitors can find a new spot to indulge in iconic Prince’s Hot Chicken or to sample tacos and queso from Asheville-based White Duck Taco Shop.

The stand-up tasting areas and two bars offer ample opportunities to sample 13 varieties of Ole Smoky moonshine and whiskey along with a range of Yee-Haw beer flights and cocktails.

Exposed rafters, brick walls and poured concrete floors are in keeping with the site’s original industrial use, and oversized factory windows and roll-up doors provide an easy flow to and from the outdoor seating areas and stage.

Ole Smoky Distillery and Yee-Haw Brewing Co. are celebrating a grand opening of their massive collaborative multi-purpose venue 6th & Peabody this week — and the festivities continue into the weekend.
