Black Tap Nashville earliest among new locations opening within in 2022, 2023
Black Tap Craft Burgers and Beer will open new locations in Dallas, Miami and Nashville by early 2023. Married couple and founders Chris Barish and Julie Mulligan will expand their brand of burgers and CrazyShake milkshakes to 21 locations worldwide. After the three openings, the burger chain will operate in six states and nine countries.
In the Lonestar state, the Black Tap owners will open in Dallas’ Victory Park, a growing neighborhood located between uptown and the city’s industrial-chic design district. Black Tap Dallas will be among restaurants and retail, plus public art, and a one-acre park there. The area is home to American Airlines Center, a major sports arena, and will be home to the new Black Tap Dallas by early 2023.
Black Tap will also debut a restaurant in Nashville in late 2022. The new unit on 211 Commerce Street will benefit from the central downtown location. Black Tap Nashville will be situated by Broadway’s infamous Honky Tonk Highway, the legendary Ryman Auditorium, and the Nashville Predators Bridgestone Arena.
In addition, Black Tap will open a unit in 2023 at Brickell City Centre, Miami’s neighborhood hub—once a financial district, but now increasingly akin to a lifestyle center. Black Tap Brickell will serve guests from near and afar in the district. Brickell welcomes guests year-round to a robust dining, shopping, entertainment, and arts scene just off the Miami River.
“It’s easy to be excited about these openings, all taking place in cities we have spent a lot of time in and fallen in love with,” said owner Chris Barish. “The decision of where to go next isn’t a simple one though. We weigh many factors including where the current hot spots for growth are, what places are requested the most by our followers on social media and guests, and if we feel a genuine connection to the place. These cities hit all three.”
Black Tap operates in New York City, the Vegas strip, Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort, Bahrain, Singapore, Switzerland, and the UAE. Initially, the chain started as a15-seat counter bar in New York’s Soho neighborhood. It describes its vibe as “downtown and hip NYC-inspired mixtape attitude.”
Julie Mulligan, who will oversee the design of the three new locations, commented, “The Dallas, Nashville and Miami markets are all seeing strong growth and have thriving restaurant scenes. We’ve spent hundreds of hours exploring each one to ensure we could bring something fresh to each city. We’re looking forward to sharing the Black Tap experience—from our craft burgers and New York vibes to our original artwork and murals and DJ-curated beats.”
