US: Margaritaville Hotel is Nashville’s first in-town destination and will be operated by award-winning management company, Davidson Hotels & Resorts.

Set to open December 2019, the 217-room hotel will be located in Nashville's SoBro neighbourhood (South of Broadway), close to iconic landmarks such as the Country Music Hall of Fame, Honky Tonk Highway, Bridgestone Arena, and more.

Atlanta-based hospitality management group, Davidson Hotels & Resorts, has recently been selected by Safe Harbor Development to oversee the new hotel. "With Davidson's success to date managing Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort and recent expansion with Davidson Restaurant Group, we saw them as the clear choice to manage the new development where we are debuting two new dining concepts for the brand," said Darby Campbell, owner of Safe Harbor Development.

Alongside the two new dining concepts - JWB Grill and FINS Bar - Margaritaville Hotel will also feature a rooftop deck with a pool, fire pits and live entertainment, a 24-hour fitness suite, and more than 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space.

"At Davidson, we dare to be great by pushing boundaries," said John Belden, CEO of Davidson Hotels & Resorts. "We feel Margaritaville and Safe Harbor are doing just that by launching the first in-town Margaritaville and bringing the island-escapism lifestyle to downtown Nashville."

Margaritaville is a lifestyle brand inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett, an American singer-songwriter whose work evokes and often portrays "tropical escapism and relaxation."

John Cohlan, CEO of Margaritaville, added: "Margaritaville is a way of living and a state of mind. John Belden and the Davidson team have proven how well they can translate our signature fun and escapism into an authentic lodging experience. We look forward to expanding our partnership with John and his team beyond Hollywood Beach and Nashville."
