Harpeth Capital Advises on Financing of City Winery Nashville

Harpeth Capital, LLC is pleased to announce that it served as financial advisor to New York City-based City Winery, LLC in connection with the financing of City Winery Nashville.  Senior debt financing was provided by Pinnacle Bank with additional investment from individual investors, Harpeth Ventures and City Winery.

With locations in New York City, Chicago and Napa (opening April 2014), City Winery is a preeminent venue combining food, wine, music and entertainment.  From public performances to private concerts, a few of the many artists who have performed on City Winery’s stages include Prince, Neil Young, Jerry Seinfeld, Sinead O’Connor and Jackson Browne.  In addition to live music, the venues feature premium settings for corporate events and dinners, receptions, wine-trade gatherings and tastings, among other functions.

“We could not be more excited about Nashville being the fourth location for the City Winery concept,” said Michael Dorf, Founder and CEO.  “We looked at over 50 potential locations in the city before identifying a perfect site that offers both the size and space we were looking for as well as a fantastic location close to the Music City Center and other planned development.  Furthermore, we are very grateful for the support from Pinnacle Bank, Harpeth Capital and the investors.  We can’t wait to show this place off.”

“We were excited about the possibility of working with City Winery from the first time we met Michael.  He has created a brand that offers a unique experience whether you are coming for dinner, drinks or an event.  Furthermore, it is a testament to the buzz surrounding Nashville for it to be selected as City Winery’s fourth location as Michael has exciting plans for future sites.  Nashville is in great company,” said Chuck Byrge, Head of Investment Banking at Harpeth Capital.
