About the Roof

It all started in Atlanta back in 1996.  We were originally located in Buckhead where the locals kept the place packed and musicians kept the place rocking.  With great live music being such a driving force for our success, it made perfect sense to move the concept to Music City, USA.  In February of 2002, we opened the Tin Roof on Demonbreun Street at the base of Nashville’s famed music row.  The Roof (as it’s known to our Regulars) has been a hit ever since.  Our customers love our laid-back feel and live entertainment—not to mention our made from scratch food served up by a friendly and eclectic staff. 

In 2006, due to the demand of many of our original Regulars that had moved to the Cool Springs area outside of Nashville, Tin Roof 2 was opened.  TR2 has since been joined by many other Nashville businesses in the now flourishing area around Carothers Parkway.  Tin Roof Lexington was opened in the spring of 2009 after back to back visits to the Music City Bowl brought thousands of UK fans to Nashville and the Tin Roof.  We liked them so much that we had to follow them back home! 

Later that fall, we opened Tin Roof Knoxville on the world famous Strip by the University of Tennessee and immediately learned all the words to Rocky Top!  Tin Roof Columbia joined the family in 2010 after we converted a warehouse used for government offices into the liveliest joint in the Vista.  Our second location in Knoxville opened Spring 2011 in the Rocky Hill neighborhood.

Tin Roof Birmingham in the Lakeview district opened in January 2012.  In May 2012 Tin Roof Indianapolis opened downtown Indy, steps from the Pacers home, Bankers Life Fieldhouse.  Tin Roof Cincinnati opened in September 2012 just in time to see our neighbors the Cincinnati Reds enter the playoffs!  Tin Roof Louisville, located in historic Saint Matthews opened days later.  

2013 has us expanding the Roof family to North Carolina, where in July we opened our 11th Tin Roof in Charlotte.  Located on the second floor of the famed Epicentre, the Tin Roof is minutes away from all of Charlotte’s local attractions.  Expect more to follow, it's our mission to spread live music and it's just too much fun to stop!

So come on in and hang out at a Live Music Joint where there’s no bitchin’ or whinin’ — just a laid-back atmosphere where you can kick back and have a good time. Bring us your stuff—we’ll hang it up! And remember… Relax! You’re at the Roof! Where everybody is somebody!
