Good morning, Nashville. Owners of Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Broadway Brewhouse and Rippy’s have dropped $2.1 million on purchasing the old Seanachie Pub building at Fourth and Broadway, which has been vacant for nearly ten years. Since it was shuttered in 2002, the building has changed hands a couple of times between banks and out-of-town investors, though most folks seem hopeful that these locals with a track record of success may finally be able to bring something good into the space. The new owners haven’t given many details about their plans, but they did say that it’ll include some “Broadway honky-tonk flavor.” Good news is, it probably won’t be a CVS.
