Live music is back at City Winery with limited capacity concerts featuring an incredible lineup including John Hiatt’s solo acoustic July 24-25 shows as well as Howard Hewett (Shalamar) and Kandace Springs. Mike Zito, Kim Richey, and Seth Walker round out the new shows.

The reconfigured seating layout includes widely-spaced tables with the same intimate feel Nashville has come to expect. City Winery’s globally-influenced, wine-focused, and locally sourced menu is available to enjoy for concert dining.

“I have always enjoyed City Winery’s intimacy and professionalism over the many years I’ve played their rooms,” said singer-songwriter John Hiatt. 

Hiatt continued, “And now, given the new world, I trust all the safety, precautions, and efforts they are making to help take care of us artists and the fans. It’s really great to see the critical ecosystem of live music in independent venues starting up again.”

Tickets for the full lineup (listed further down the release) of new shows are available Friday, June 19, at 12 p.m. C.T. and can be purchased here. VinoFile members can purchase tickets 24 hours in advance. 

“Reopening is a process, but one thing remains constant – your safety, and ours, is of paramount importance. We are careful to err on the side of caution,” said Michael Dorf, Founder and CEO of City Winery.

He continued, “When you’re ready to return, we’re here for you. And if you’ve been to a concert, you know: the second set is the best set. We’ll make the most of ours. We can’t wait to welcome you home!” 

The Barrel Room Restaurant & Wine Bar opens its doors with new precautions to enhance safety for guests and staff. These include wellness checks upon arrival for guests and staff, employees in masks, stringent and regular sanitization of surfaces, contactless ordering, and more.
