A Community

Stay a while! Join in the vibe of our welcoming bar. While it is home to weekly promotions, we also host a range of exciting events in this space. Whether it’s a casual game day celebration, a stop for the bachelorette party, or a graduation dinner, you’ll find camaraderie here as strong and warm as a pour of Tennessee whiskey.

The patio is currently closed for the season and will reopen in Spring 2020. Join us inside for all the specials you've come to love!

The Reason for The Season

Central Bar + Kitchen knows that the holiday season is all about the spirit of giving. To make our community a better place, guests can play Santa and participate in our restaurant’s holiday toy drive: bring in a new child’s toy to be donated to charity, and - in exchange - get a free appetizer!
