Raise a Toast: Nashville’s Newest Speakeasy Opening on January 18

Fable Lounge, a new speakeasy and cocktail bar, opens in Nashville’s West End neighborhood on Saturday, January 18 providing a distinguished new experience unlike any other offerings in the area. With a revitalized approach to modern day hospitality, Fable Lounge pays homage to the storied past of when speakeasies first became part of American culture in the late 19th century.


With an extensive beverage selection to excite any cocktail enthusiast, the menu will offer everything from libations made with inspired seasonal ingredients to unique takes on quintessential classics. The talented team behind the bar will be serving up many local spirits, twists on favorites, Tennessee-local brews and more. To complement the beverages, the thoughtfully designed food menu features modern American comfort food with a fine dining twist and consists of shareable small plates, entrees and desserts. The menu provides a memorable dining experience for any occasion–whether it’s weeknight happy hour, a celebratory dinner or a late-night bite. Wherever possible, both food and drink ingredients are sourced from local and regional purveyors.


Designed by co-owners Ben Powell and John Dibble, the space features two large floors with a mezzanine and upstairs patio. Every area within Fable Lounge, from the expansive piano lounge and luxurious booths to the covered outdoor patio cigar lounge, is designed to amplify the guest experience.  Located in a historic building with a modern addition, the space itself has a storied past with a contemporary touch.

From opening through February, Fable Lounge will also be donating a percentage of all small plate sales to The Nashville Food Project.
