Black Rabbit is a true ode to old Nashville and the storied past of the historic Printer’s Alley neighborhood in which it resides. Nashville chef Trey Cioccia (The Farm House) has crafted a cocktail bar and restaurant reminiscent of the early 1900’s speakeasies that permeated Printer’s Alley once upon a time in downtown Nashville.
Black Rabbit is housed in a historic building dating back to the 1890’s and attributes its name to a bygone New York cocktail bar. The space was once the law offices of Frank Ragano, legal counsel for Jimmy Hoffa and other notable figures of mafia notoriety, and is built around its intriguing history showing off 16-foot ceilings, exposed brick and original hardwood flooring. We left many of the original details intact in order to preserve the old-school energy that was already abundant throughout the building.
Black Rabbit boasts a large bar, spacious banquettes and a living room area, while an adjacent exterior patio offers open-air seating. With plenty of space for large groups or intimate gatherings, Black Rabbit is the perfect place to gather with a large group or for a mid-week respite with close friends.
