The latest M.L.Rose location offers a sports-focused, family-oriented atmosphere at 3084 Columbia Ave.

“We’ve seen how welcoming our neighbors just outside of Nashville have been, and opening this location in Franklin is a dream coming to fruition,” said Austin Ray, CEO and founder. “It’s always a blessing when M.L.Rose can come to life inside an existing building, and the Franklin location is no exception. We’re really proud of what we’ve built here, and as a brand, we believe that people should be able to relax and enjoy themselves where they live and work. We hope the Franklin community experiences this commitment each time they visit their local M.L.Rose.”

Guests can expect the well-known ‘get out without getting fancy’ atmosphere found in established M.L.Rose locations, including a comfortable yet lively space that celebrates the spirit of the neighborhood. M.L.Rose Franklin will be uniquely designed to cater to the community by serving as a destination for local sports lovers. Guests can enjoy a covered, dog-friendly heated patio, a spacious turf area and a two-sided outdoor fireplace. Alongside this distinctive design, guests will still be welcomed by the extensive draft beer selection and menu, highlighting locally crafted brews, its proprietary Porter Road burgers, and hot crispy waffle fries.

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers is a locally owned chain of neighborhood pubs founded in Nashville, TN, in 2008. While M.L.Rose solidified itself as a neighborhood staple through a focus on quality, its early alignment with the soon-to-explode craft beer market is what sparked further growth. The second location on Charlotte Avenue opened in 2012, M.L.Rose Capitol View, opened in 2017, and M.L.Rose Mt. Juliet, the first location outside of Nashville, opened in 2021.

The eclectic, lived-in feel, extensive seasonal beer offerings, quality burgers and crisp waffle fries featured at each location make the pubs ideal for all visitors from each location’s unique community.

Above all else, the M.L.Rose team is committed to being a good neighbor and bringing an unmatched selection of the best, the little-known and new-to-market craft beers closer to each community.

M.L.Rose is owned and operated by Nashville native Austin Ray of A.Ray Hospitality, with five area locations and two more on the way. For more information, visit and
