Virgin Hotels Brand Unveils Nashville Plans


Virgin Hotels, the lifestyle hotel brand created by Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, is gearing up for a fall 2016 opening in the Music City.  

The group has revealed its Nashville, Tenn., building designs with local construction management firm D.F. Chase Inc. and the architectural firm BLUR Workshop from Atlanta. Virgin Hotels Nashville will be located at the start of the city's iconic Music Row, with the address One Music Row.

The property will feature 240 Chambers and Grand Chamber Suites, along with 15 penthouse residential units. The ground floor will include Virgin Hotels' signature space, The Commons Club, a hybrid, bar/lounge, laidback study and restaurant aiming for the vibe of a membership club but without the fees. A centerpiece bar, live entertainment venue, plus an outside veranda with sweeping views of the city will be among the other spaces featured.

The property will also bring another top-tier recording space to historic Music Row with a studio fully integrated into the facility.

Other dining and bar options will be available for hotel guests and locals, including a rooftop pool that will offer an evolving food concept. Guests will also have access to a gym and wellness center, and 14,000-square-feet of meeting space will be available for events.

Virgin Hotels Chicago is now open and accepting reservations, with Virgin New York debuting in the summer of 2017.
