A New Beginning: Woolworth Theatre

In 2021, Woolworth on 5th came under new ownership.

Country music artist Chuck Wicks will transform Nashville’s historic Woolworth building into a venue with a capacity of 750+ . The singer has partnered with investor and entrepreneur Rob Bellenfant and 615 Ventures for the project.

Wicks is working with a Nashville-based architect, along with the Tennessee State Museum, to honor the building’s history and preserve the original storefront. Below are a few renderings of the concept.

“This project has been over three years in the making,” Wicks stated. “Our goal is to open in 2022 with an original theatrical concept show as well as a state-of-the-art theatre, lounge and event space. We love this city and want to expand all it has to offer, while providing a different type of experience.”

The Woolworth Theatre is slated to open its doors in Fall 2022.
