from Nashville Tin roof is now open in the heart of Westport – more than two years after its originally scheduled opening date.

“It’s a live music venue with a full-service bar and well-done Southern-inspired bar food,” said Josh Boor, general manager.

Rusty metal gas signs and vintage license plates are part of the decor, along with a small silver disco ball on the dance floor. Colorful Christmas lights surround the bar. An upper mezzanine will have tables overlooking the stage, dance floor and dining room. Outdoor tables are set up on a grassed area with a bar in a converted shipping container.
