Owners of Nicky's Coal Fired to Open New Event Space in the Nations

The Maxwell Room Will Be Available For Rentals Beginning Early 2024.

NASHVILLE, TN (January 24, 2024) – The Maxwell Room, a new event space from the owners of Nicky’s Coal Fired, is set to open its doors this spring. Located in the same building as Nicky’s, the 1600 sq. ft private dining room will be able to accommodate up to 100 guests for a cocktail event and 80 for a seated dinner.

The Maxwell Room features an all-inclusive event experience, making it one of the more affordable rentals in Nashville. Instead of charging for the space, a food and beverage minimum must be met with no additional charges for staff, furniture, plates, or silverware. All food and beverage for the space will be coming from Nicky’s Coal Fired, an Italian restaurant and pizzeria. Catering options include entrees such as handmade pasta, roasted chicken picatta, an array of appetizers and salads, and tiramisu or mini cannolis for dessert. Custom desserts or cake options are also available upon request.

Located on 51st Street in The Nations, the space features a raw aesthetic with exposed brick, late 1800s refurbished hardwood floors and large, warehouse-style windows that give the space natural lighting. The openness of the space is conducive to a variety of furniture, whether it’s high tops or banquet tables, and includes a private room that can be utilized as a bridal suite. The rental also includes projectors, AV equipment, and a stage, making the space adaptable and ready to celebrate any occasion.

This will be the third hospitality project for Nicky’s Coal Fired co-owners, Caroline and Tony Galzin, in Nashville. The husband-wife team is also responsible for the Saint Nicky’s Christmas pop-up during the holiday season.

“We are thrilled to continue to expand our business in The Nations and open The Maxwell Room, which will be a versatile space to celebrate special events and milestones," said co-owner Caroline Galzin. "It’s important to us to offer a special experience that is accessible to a variety of budgets and create events that are custom-tailored to each guest. We’ve been in The Nations for ten years, and we love being part of this community.”

The Maxwell Room is currently taking bookings for this spring through 2025. Reach out to hello@nickysnashville.com for more information or to reserve the space.
