Upcoming Westin Nashville shares F&B details

Westin Nashville

The upcoming Westin Nashville, which held its topping-off ceremony this week, will feature several F&B options when it opens in October. These include L27, a rooftop lounge that is reported to be the highest in the region. L27 will feature a pool deck that can accommodate more than 200 people and includes a private venue option, according to the Nashville Post.

Decker & Dyer, a casual lobby bar and restaurant, also will open at the property, according to Nashville Eater, and an as-yet-unnamed two-story restaurant will also be part of the project, with additional details on it coming in the near future.

Decker & Dyer will feature a 15-foot bar incorporating a glass wall with original black-and-white country music videos projected on specially designed wall. "One of the things we want to do is connect with Nashville — bring some of the originality back," said Paul Wischermann, CEO of hotel management company Wischermann Partners, told The Tennessean.

In the morning, Decker & Dyer will serve breakfast. At lunchtime, it will be transformed into a casual dining restaurant serving flatbread, salads and other menu items. At night, Decker & Dyer will operate as a bar with a light food menu.

The name Decker & Dyer refers to two individuals who helped to create Vauxhall Gardens, which in the mid-1800s was a gathering place for Nashville located near the site where The Westin Nashville is now rising, according to The Tennessean.

Castle Rock Asset Management is developing and owns the 454-room, 27-story hotel. Wischermann Partners is the property’s management company.

Also in Nashville, the One House Hospitality division of Besh Restaurant Group, which is helmed by renowned chef John Besh, recently announced it will open three outlets at the Thompson Nashville hotel: a seafood restaurant, called The Marsh House; a coffeeshop, Killebrew Coffee; and a rooftop bar.

The outlets at the Thompson Nashville are scheduled to open in the fall of 2016.

The Thompson Nashville is being developed by Chicago's AJ Capital Partners, New Orleans' The Berger Company and Nashville's MarketStreet Enterprises. New Orleans-based ERG Enterprises is also an investor in the Nashville project. The hotel will be operated by Commune Hotels and Resorts.
