MIDTOWN – Nashville’s iconic hot chicken establishment Hattie B’s has decided to tear down its original 1924 building in favor of two thinner, but taller buildings on the original lot. In a move mirroring perhaps Nashville’s most archetypal housing trend, the restaurant has demolished the historic original location, including its boring historic charm and outdated original details, in favor of two ultra-modern-neo-boho-eco-urban “tall, skinny” buildings with hardwood floors, marble counters, space to entertain and a walk-in closet to die for. The two buildings seem to look identical but company representatives spent the next 4 minutes pointing out the barely-noticeable differences.
“We want to improve the experience. For us, I mean. Now we can serve twice as many people and make twice as much money. Which is the real reason we’re all here in Nashville, isn’t it?”
– Company Representative
The new buildings open Labor Day weekend.
