Gulch looks to land The Pub

Authentic English tavern slated for Pine Street Flats

The Pub — a British-inspired tavern concept that features English culinary fare — will take a retail space in the soon-to-be-completed Pine Street Flats in the Gulch.

The restaurant will be the first in Tennessee for Tavern Restaurant Group, which owns The Pub, and its 10th overall. The company has The Pub locations in Florida, Kentucky and Ohio.

MarketStreet Enterprises, the MDHA-appointed Gulch master developer, is developing Pine Street Flats, some residential units of which are already lived in.

“We are working with MarketStreet and hope to be able to make an announcement soon,” said Nancy Parrot, Tavern Restaurant Group marketing director. She declined further comment.

Tavern Restaurant Group also is the owner of Nicholson’s, a downtown Cincinnati gastropub that earns high praise and is known for its authentic British pub interior design and broad whisky selection.
