A Nashville-based restaurant and live music joint working to expand into Fayetteville is on track to open on Dickson Street soon.
Signs appeared on the building recently advertising that the business is currently hiring for all positions, and a Facebook post this week indicated that the venue is already seeking musicians to play at the venue when it opens up soon.
Tin Roof first opened in 2002 on Demonbreun Hill, near Nashville’s famed Music Row. The idea was to create a place for musicians to perform, and also a place to hang out when they weren’t on stage.
“Over the years, our stages have hosted the famous, the should have been famous, and everyone in between,” the company’s website states.

Venue owner Bob Franklin told us earlier this year that Tin Roof’s Fayetteville location will include live entertainment on both levels, with patio seating available both upstairs and downstairs. A parking area out back will also be converted into a patio and beer garden, he told us.
Franklin said the plan is to host live music seven nights a week from a variety of genres.
“Being from Nashville, we have country roots, but we’ll also have pop, rock, Americana, indie, and everything in between,” he said. “We really hope to bring that Nashville experience to Fayetteville.”
Franklin said the venue will host some touring shows, a lot of local music, songwriter nights, as well as showcases for up-and-coming acts from around the country.
In addition to the music, Tin Roof is also a restaurant, with a full menu including tacos, quesadillas, burgers, and other fare.
Patrick Nietzer, director of Facilities for Tin Roof, told us this week the venue is still on track to open later this summer.
“We are shooting to be wrapped up with construction and opening the very end of July/early August,” he said. “Currently our construction is tracking with these expected dates.”
