STK Nashville brings its trademark high-energy, Vibe Dining experience to Music City

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. (NASDAQ:STKS) (“The ONE Group”) today announced the opening of STK Nashville, the brand’s first restaurant in Tennessee. Located in the Gulch neighborhood of Nashville at 700 12th Avenue South, the opening marks the continued global expansion of the STK brand and the second restaurant opening of 2019.

“Music City has always been in our sights. The music, the people and the vibe fit seamlessly with all STK represents, and we could not be more excited to be opening our doors to the Nashville community,” said Emanuel “Manny” Hilario, President and CEO of The ONE Group. “This is our 19th STK restaurant globally and the sixth we have opened over the past 15 months, a 46 percent growth in the STK footprint. This shows the demand for STK’s highly differentiated Vibe Dining brand. Our pipeline is robust, and we look forward to continuing our industry-leading growth in Vibe Dining.”

The new, company owned restaurant opens under the culinary direction of Executive Chef Eli Jackson. The menu will feature the elevated American cuisine for which STK is best known, including signature dishes such as Braised Short Ribs with Jalapeno Cheddar Grits, Grilled Octopus and Tuna Tartare. STK Nashville also, of course, features the highest quality cuts of beef – like the Wagyu Flatiron and Cowgirl Ribeye – as part of the brand’s U.S. beef program, which launched in 2018 and focuses on the highest quality, delicious and craveable steaks while emphasizing transparency and traceable sourcing practices.

STK Nashville also features a robust mixology program that highlights locally-inspired cocktails such as The Double Down, which features Tennessee’s own Jack Daniel’s whiskey, lemon, egg white and a pinot noir floater. STK Nashville is open for dinner seven nights a week and features drink specials Monday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in the bar and lounge areas.

The design of STK Nashville reflects the trendy and hip Gulch neighborhood with classic white brick wall accents interlaced with glass and steel framing. At 9,057 square-feet, the restaurant includes a spacious, raised dining room, bistro and outdoor seating areas, a bar and a mezzanine overlooking the main dining area with seating for approximately 160 guests. The space also features four private dining rooms, each capable of accommodating parties of 60 guests, with a central DJ and bar service designed to enhance the integrated dining experience.

STK Nashville hours of operation are 3:30 p.m. – 11 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays; 3:30 p.m. – 12 a.m. on Fridays; 5 p.m. – 12 a.m. on Saturdays; and 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. on Sundays. For more information and reservations, please visit or call (615) 619-3500.
