Folks taking flight at Nashville International Airport (BNA) can look forward to discovering more of Nashville's legendary restaurant-bar scene right at the airport. In October, three new arrivals join the restaurants open at BNA, meaning more celebrated food, drink, and live music for all to enjoy.
"We are excited to announce the new locations in our program at BNA," says Matt Jennings, vice president of Fraport Tennessee, the developer and manager of the airport’s new concessions program. "Tootsies and Tennessee Brew Works represent the pride and joy of Tennessee. We are thrilled to welcome them back in new, expanded spaces ready to serve travelers. Green Beans Coffee is another popular destination, now with live music in a new location pre-security."
Located near the South Terminal exit, Green Beans Coffee Co. boasts an expansive modern design in 2,990 square feet of space. Customers can enjoy freshly baked pastries with their lattes, listen to live music and enjoy conversation in several new seating areas. Locally operated, the coffee shop marked its opening today with live music, balloons, and treats for Music City travelers.
Tennessee Brew Works is serving all its craft beer favorites in an inviting 550 square-foot space in the A/B rotunda across from the food court. The Nashville brewery now offers a full bar and "grab and go" items, with expanded seating, multiple TV screens, and more. It is known for paying homage to the land, traditions, and culture of Tennessee.
Newly renovated, Tootsies World Famous Orchid Lounge is a welcome sight at BNA. The historic Nashville bar and restaurant concept returns to its prime spot (3,116 sq. ft.) in Concourse C with live music and a full menu and bar at the forefront of the dining experience. Another plus, with street pricing, Tootsies’ famous BBQ pork sandwich costs the same at the airport as it does at Tootsies on Broadway.
Fraport's 1-800-ITS-FAIR pricing guarantee ensures customers pay the same amount for their purchases at the airport shops and restaurants as they would at a similar site outside the airport.
"We are committed to this program and serving BNA travelers well throughout the development," adds Jennings. "These new arrivals point to more good things to come for passengers, visitors, and employees alike at the airport."
