New York-born popular piano karaoke lounge Sid Gold’s Request Room is getting ready to open a third location — this time in East Nashville. While an exact date hasn’t been set yet, owner Paul Devitt tells Eater that the bar and entertainment venue is on track to open in early April at 3245 Gallatin Pike (right next door to El Fuego).
Devitt, who also founded Beauty Bar, opened the original karaoke venue with partner and former Psychedelic Furs keyboardist Joe McGinty in 2015. A Detroit outpost opened in mid-2019 on the ground floor of the Siren Hotel.
The owner tells Eater that the Nashville location will see a similar set-up as the other two — with cocktail bar in front and piano lounge in the back. Devitt says the menu is not yet determined, but karaoke crooners can expect a limited kitchen menu. Piano-backed karaoke will happen nightly, with other live entertainment on schedule in the evenings pre-karaoke.
Sid Gold’s is known for its eclectic approach to karaoke where customers can request songs and belt out their favorite tunes — anything from pop to punk to soul to classic rock — accompanied by a live pianist. The bar (which got its name from one of the investor’s fathers) also regularly showcases burlesque performances at both of its current locations — which will occur once a week in the Nashville space.
