The owners of Bad Axe Throwing Nashville Thom and Angela Dahle have announced their next venture, conveniently neighboring Bad Axe, called Fogg Street Lawn Club to open next year. The concept will combine a rooftop restaurant and bar with outdoor sporting activities inspired by British Lawn Bowling, soccer, and a rugby-focused neighborhood pub, with an address of 648 Fogg St.
The projected timeline for opening Fogg Street is spring 2024, depending on construction and permitting. The design of the location is by Daniels & Chandler Architects, the kitchen and bar are being handled by Katalyst Restaurant Concepts, and the construction efforts are by Eshelman Construction.
“Fogg Street Lawn Club will be the first of its kind in Nashville — bringing British-style Lawn Bowling to an 8,000 square feet rooftop lawn overlooking the downtown skyline. Unlike Bocce Ball, Lawn Bowling is a sport where individuals roll, not toss, a weighted ball that curves towards a small target ball. Lawn Bowling is fun and easy for everyone to play,” describes the press release.
The views of the downtown Nashville skyline that will be on display from Fogg Street’s centrally located Pie Town address are expected to be an unparalleled experience for its guests. The venue’s rooftop bowling green will offer eight individual lanes called rinks and will include covered VIP seating.
The food offered at Fogg Street will include unique European dishes catered to the Nashville demographic with familiar Southern twists, as well as a full bar.
What Now Nashville spoke with Thom about the details of Fogg Street and what Nashvillians can expect.
“The menu will feature house-made British and Celtic-inspired items with a bit of a Southern flare in addition to an impressive British/Irish draft beer and whiskey selection,” Thom told What Now in an email.
Fogg Street will truly be unlike any other Nashville attraction.
“Our team is most excited to bring something new and unique to downtown Nashville with this incredible rooftop British Lawn Bowling venue. The thought and detail we put into Bad Axe, and more importantly the amazing team of people we built will be the key to the success of the new venue,” Thom said.
