The Sutler Saloon — bar, restaurant, and music venue will be resurrected in the same location as the original Sutler that hosted country legends such as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Don Everly, and Steve Earle. The saloon is set to open sometime this summer in the same development as the new Sinema restaurant on 8th Avenue South.
The establishment will be two levels holding 8,000 square feet of space. The main floor will be catered towards being reminiscient of the Sutler. It will host live music regularly as well as serve Nashville-style cuisine. In addition, the Sutler Saloon has expanded to feature a craft beer and cocktail menu. The bottom level will house a speakeasy cocktail lounge for its customers to enjoy a lighter atmosphere.
The project is being headed by Joe Parkes and Austin Ray. Ray is best known for his M.L. Rose burger and beer hotspots. Parker has been involved in the Melrose theater project. The Sutler Saloon is committed to preserving the history in the Melrose area.
