Jane’s Hideaway has been a downtown oasis for live music and cocktails since opening in Nashville’s Printers Alley two years ago, but soon owner John Peet will close up shop on Third Avenue and bring the venue, bar, and restaurant to a new home in East Nashville (407 Gallatin Ave.).
Peet, who also owns cocktail destinations House of Cards and Old Glory, posted a message to Instagram on Tuesday, May 10 announcing the move, saying that the bar’s landlord chose to not renew the lease in Printers Alley. That address, 209 Third Ave., was previously home to Sea Salt, which closed early on in the pandemic, and, more historically, legendary saxophonist Boots Randolph’s supper club. Jane’s last day on Third Avenue is Sunday, May 29, Peet said.
When it opened at the height of the pandemic in November 2020, Jane’s Hideaway stood out among downtown venues, with creative cocktails, a not-so-basic live music lineup, and small but mighty dinner and brunch menus from chef E.M. Bortolacci. Jane’s On Top, the venue’s rooftop bar that turned into a holiday pop-up in season, will not be recreated at the new location.
At the time of opening, Peet noted that Jane’s location in historic Printers Alley was “perfect for our concept,” and that he and his team were able to hire out of work service industry and artist friends for help in the building’s remodel and rehab process. Peet told the Nashville Post that guests can expect “a few tweaks,” but that overall the food, drinks, music, and whiskey list will “remain intact” at the new location.
Following its last day in Printers Alley (May 29), Jane’s Hideaway is expected to reopen on Gallatin Avenue sometime this summer.
