Live Music Venue Planned for Glenwood South

From the News & Observer...

The Tin Roof chain of live music venues based in Nashville is planning to open a bar and restaurant in the Glenwood South district near downtown Raleigh.

The company has 15 bars and restaurants in several states, including one in Charlotte and one in Myrtle Beach. Its first establishment opened in 2002 in Nashville, tapping into that city’s music scene.

Owner and CEO Bob Franklin on Thursday said he has been watching Raleigh grow over the past decade, both downtown and along Glenwood Avenue, and decided now was the time to enter the market. ...

Tin Roof in Raleigh will have live music most nights, providing a stage for local and regional musicians who haven’t signed with major record labels.

Franklin said the project will entail major renovation inside, while the outside of the building will basically remain intact. Pending approvals from the city, he said, construction could begin in July and Tin Roof could be open for business by the end of this year.
