The Grand Ole Opry’s Opry City Stage Restaurant Bids Adios To The Big Apple

The Grand Ole Opry’s Opry City Stage Restaurant Bids Adios To The Big Apple

The Grand Ole Opry’s Opry City Stage restaurant and venue located at 1604 Broadway, has closed its doors nine months after it opened in Times Square. Opry owners Ryman, let the restaurant’s 99 employees know Thursday.

In a statement, Ryman Hospitality CEO Colin Reed stated: “As we have shared over the past several months, our Opry City Stage venue has taken longer to ramp up its operations than we initially anticipated and has unfortunately underperformed our revenue expectations this year. We have decided that suspending operations at Opry City Stage while we evaluate the venue’s ground floor experience and operations is the appropriate course of action.”

The Opry City Stage website has this message: “Opry City Stage is temporarily paused for intermission as we prep for our next big thing! Please stay tuned for future announcements.”

The 28,000-square-foot theme restaurant opened December 1st and cost $14 million

28,000-square-foot theme restaurant also had a museum filled with memorabilia of country music stars like Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, Patsy Cline, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift.

I guess country doesn’t exactly sell in the big city. Now will someone turn this into an amazing theatre!
