Earlier this week, OnMilwaukee announced Nashville North was taking over the former Up & Under, 1214 E. Brady St. Today, we received more information about the new spot.

Nashville North will open at some point this fall and, according to the press release, will open "post-pandemic (and) under no restrictions."

The bar, restaurant and music venue will offer live music from all genres, including a house band with local musicians. Weekly open mic and karaoke sessions are also on tap.

Nashville North will serve meals and late-night bites including rotisserie chicken, barbecue ribs, Nashville hot chicken sandwiches, gourmet hot dogs, pulled pork cheese fries and more. There will be a limited breakfast/brunch menu on weekends.

The space will be completely rehabbed including an open-air, garage-style door that can be opened during agreeable weather. Construction will start as soon as permits have been granted.

The owner, Jeff Marsh, has experience in live music with stages and operations at Summerfest and State Fair’s Charcoal Grill Roadhouse. 

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
