June 19--Nashville-based Tin Roof will open at 315 Beale after Hard Rock Cafe Memphis moves to 126 Beale. An opening date hasn't been set but is expected to be later this year.
Tin Roof, which brands itself as "a live music joint," features executive chef Will Zuchman's "TennMex" cuisine that "blends foods native to Tennessee and neighboring regions with traditional Mexican dishes," a release said. There are 13 Tin Roof locations.
"We are proud to help bring Tin Roof to one of our country's most active entertainment and music districts, thereby aligning with its mission of supporting local musicians and fostering a sense of community," said Fletcher Elkington of Elkington Real Estate Group, who brokered the transaction.
The restaurant will offer local and national music acts and fills a space that Hard Rock has occupied since 1997.
The 11,000-square-foot space is being sublet from Memphis Sound Productions, Inc., will holds a long-term lease.
