Stage Is Set: Ryman Hospitality Properties will open Opry City Stage in New York's Times Square in April.
Considered the Grand Ole Opry's first "home away from home," the four-level venue will share Nashville food and music, including live performances and simulcasts of Opry shows, as well as a bar, restaurant and listening room featuring curated performances from the Bluebird Cafe, and a retail area. "Opry City Stage is all about taking the diverse sounds that originate in Nashville to other markets so that fans have another way to discover new artists and connect with the music they love," says Chairman/CEO Colin Reed. "We believe that once our Opry City Stage guests get a taste for all the Grand Ole Opry and Nashville have to offer, they are going to want to visit Music City and experience it for themselves."
