Famous Doors

A few months ago we were contacted by our good friend, Rick Morgan. Rick is a contractor in Nashville who was doing some work for a new saloon just off Broadway on 2nd Ave North. The new saloon, Famous, which celebrated it’s grand opening this past November, is situated between Hard Rock Cafe and the Wildhorse Saloon.

Acquiring new doors for Famous Saloon was no easy task. Rick was working under very strict guidelines by the Nashville Historical Society which required him to replicate, as closely as possible, the doors that were originally present on the Second Ave block. This meant that 3 sets of doors, close to 12 feet in height each, were needed for the entry. Rick realized that the only solution to finding doors the size and style needed was to have them custom made. Knowing that Southern Accents could handle the job, Rick gave us a call!

After a bit of discussion with our wood workers, Josh and Roger, we accepted the challenge. Shortly after, work began on what is currently the largest set of doors that we have ever built. At 12 feet, not only are these doors exceptionally tall, they are extremely heavy. So heavy in fact, that our guys had to transport the 6 doors individually and had to set them in the frames on site! In addition to the exterior doors, we also built an unusual set of interior doors and provided material for the bar.

In speaking with Rick about the Famous doors he said, “The SA team knocked this one out of the park! The doors turned out better than I ever expected. Everyone here is beyond thrilled!” The next time you are in Nashville, stop by the Famous Saloon on 2nd Ave and enjoy the awesome atmosphere combined with great food and entertainment. And don’t forget to tell them that¬†Southern Accents¬†sent you!
