Friends In Low Places Bar and Honky-Tonk To Host Grand Opening Events Thursday - Celebrate With Us

Garth Brooks' and Trisha Yearwood's Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk will host its grand opening festivities Thursday – and the party starts early.

Good Morning America's Robin Roberts is in Music City to feature FILP on the popular morning show between 7 – 9 a.m. on ABC.

Garth's gift shop, The G Spot, will open to the public at 11 a.m. and will offer the first of his highly anticipated vintage t-shirts along with a wide range of other souvenirs and memorabilia. He will roll out the shirts on the first Monday of each month, starting in April and going through December. There will be 10 re-issues in total.

The first retro tee is from1991 and "Ropin' the Wind," with a shot of Garth in a black hat, black jeans, and a purple t-shirt under a black jacket. This classic re-issue is limited to 500 shirts and available exclusively at the FILP store at 411 Broadway. There is a limit of two shirts per customer.

"This shirt is the rarest that I have seen out there at concerts," Garth says.

The Garth Channel will broadcast live on TuneIn from Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk starting at 3 p.m. CT Thursday. The radio team will likely talk to guests lined up for entry into the bar as well as chat with the staff. There will also be interviews with Garth and Trisha and additional programming. Highlights of the interviews will air Friday morning during Storme Warren's show on The BIG 615.

The 54,715-square-foot entertainment complex will typically be open 11 a.m. – 2 a.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. – 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. However, on grand opening day, the honky-tonk will not open until 7 p.m.

FILP isn't alone in its opening celebrations. Garth and Trisha welcomed Nashville's finest to the Neon Neighborhood with a new police substation that's part of Friends in Low Places. Earlier this week, Nashville police chief John Drake lit up the blue POLICE sign where officers in Metro Nashville PD's Entertainment District Unit will find a new home. Garth and Trisha committed to fund the construction and furnishing of the two-story precinct, located in what was formerly an alley next to FILP, but local contractors and businesses were also eager to contribute.

"When it comes to furnishings, we really haven't had to pay for much," Trisha explains. "The second the contractors heard it's for the police, they donated their time and materials."

"I'm extremely excited for all the patrons down on Lower Broad to have a police presence there," Garth says.

Those who can't make it to Nashville to celebrate or visit FILP can get an up-close-and-personal view of the space on a new Amazon Prime Video docuseries, "Friends in Low Places," which premieres on Thursday. The show follows Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, and friends as they build the honky-tonk of their dreams.

"This was so much more than I bargained for! With that said, what we have built is far more than just a business," Garth said. "This is, by far, the craziest ride I have ever been on."

"We started down this road fueled by passion, dedication, and a shared vision," Trisha added. "I'm really proud of the team that has built the Friends Bar and Honky-Tonk. We are excited to share the culmination of everyone's efforts. It's even bigger than we dreamed!"
