About This Spot
"When Cannery Hall opens in 2023, it will be the largest independent music venue complex in Nashville. A proud member of the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), Cannery Hall’s multiple stages will be able to host musicians and audiences of varying size. Row 1 Stage will hold audiences of up to 325. The Mil can play host to audiences of 625. The Mainstage will comfortably allow for audiences of up to 1,300. The top floor of Cannery Hall is home to Amaranth, a unique special events space for up to 380 people, which is now accepting booking inquiries for summer 2023 and beyond. Cannery Hall is in the historic Cannery Row District, which has been a bedrock of Nashville’s music scene for over 40 years. Cannery Hall’s building was originally built as a flour mill for Liberty Self-Rising Flour in 1883. In the 1930s, the building was home to the Fletcher Coffee Company who milled coffee there. In the 1950s, Dale Foods Company began processing their jams, jellies, mustards, and peanut butter there until the mid-1970s. In 1981, The Cannery began its life as a music venue when the Dale family converted the building into an 18,000 square foot country style restaurant with a stage. In the early 80s, the Dale family let promoters book live bands in the space at night. By day, the club served as a stage for artists like Reba McEntire, George Strait, Patty Loveless and Tammy Wynette. At night, it was the place to catch some of the hottest rock and alternative touring acts. In 1984, The Nashville Network’s “New Country” concert series filmed at The Cannery regularly. In the 1990s, The Cannery started a new chapter when Eddie Warner bought the building which eventually passed to his sons. They worked with local entrepreneurs which led to the opening of Mercy Lounge, Cannery Ballroom and The High Watt. In its more than 40 years as a music venue, the historic stages have helped support careers of some of the biggest names in music across many genres. Cannery Hall continues that tradition with an independent spirit and a one-of-a-kind, multi-faceted music destination that adds to Music City’s heritage. Cannery Hall is expected to open in 2023 at 1 Cannery Row, Nashville, TN 37203.
