Downtown Nashville’s Long-Awaited Assembly Food Hall at Fifth + Broadway Finally Opens Soon

More than 30 new food and retails options for hungry downtown visitors and residents starting March 4

Fifth + Broadway

One of the longest anticipated openings in Nashville finally has a date, as mixed-use Fifth + Broadway and its accompanying Assembly Food Hall will open at last on Thursday, March 4. More than 30 new dining and retail options await for downtown residents and visitors with the opening, which culminates a multi-year effort by Brookfield Properties and local developer Pat Emery on the former site of the Nashville Convention Center.

The running list of tenants at Fifth + Broadway (not the food hall) include Blanco Tacos + Tequila, Boqueria, Cava, Eddie V’s, Elix’r Coffee, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, Le Macaron, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, Shake Shack, Slim & Husky’s, and the Twelve Thirty Club.

Falling under Assembly Food Hall’s massive rooftop is another growing list. North Hall dining options (located in 501 Commerce office lobby) will also open March 4, and include Cotton & Snow, DeSano Pizzeria, Donut Distillery, NoBaked Cookie Dough, Oke Poké, Smokin Chikin, Thai Esane, and Whisk Crêpes Café. And, there’s much more to come in late Spring when Assembly Food Hall will open its South Hall eateries alongside a rooftop concert venue and a full-service concept by Front Burner Society.

The whole development spans approximately 200,000-square-feet of restaurants and retail, representing a blend of local legends that have made Music City a world-class destination alongside some of the nation’s most exciting brands and restaurants coming to downtown Nashville for the first time.

Located just across from Bridgestone Arena and the Ryman Auditorium, beside the newly opened 56,000-square-foot National Museum of African American Music, Fifth + Broadway is a project over eight years in the making.
