The name is a clear nod to Brooks’ 1990 signature hit, the beloved anthem of working-class establishments everywhere.

The wait is over,” the 23-time Academy of Country Music Awards winner announced in a social media post Tuesday (Feb 20.) “We can’t wait to open in the Neon Neighborhood!!!!”

Endearingly, Brooks signed off on the message with, “love, g.”

“Garth Brooks Owes a Lot to Music City”

Brooks launched the venue’s soft opening Thanksgiving evening with a concert for a few lucky fans. Starting March 7, the Lower Broadway honky-tonk will be open seven days a week.

The grand opening will be the public’s first look at all four floors of the 54,715-square-foot space. The first two floors are a nod to classic honky-tonks, complete with a custom-built, retractable live music stage. The stage features Brooks’ signature “Circle G” emblem, repurposed from the Central Park stage where the Country Music Hall of Famer performed for a record-breaking audience of more than 1 million people. 

The third floor is reserved for intimate private events of up to 250 guests. Those guests can enjoy a double-sided fireplace and an intimate patio. The rooftop fourth floor, dubbed The Oasis, is beach themed with 10-foot-tall palm trees and two full bars.

Brooks considers the establishment his personal payback to the city that gave him everything.
