Another bar and restaurant headed to Germantown

Another restaurant group has its eye on Germantown, the epicenter of Nashville’s recent restaurant boom.

According to a recently filed building permit application, Sedona Taphouse is planning to set up shop at 1120 3rd Ave. N., inside the Broadstone Germantown apartment complex. The permit has not yet been granted.

Sedona Taphouse is the name of a Virginia-based chain owned by DJB Hospitality LLC. Its website describes the chain as a place designed “to serve fine craft beer and wine lovers alike in a warm, natural and sophisticated environment.” The chain has six current locations in Virginia, Michigan, Connecticut and New York, with two additional locations – including one in Lexington, Ky. – billed as “coming soon” on its website.

DJB Founder Dennis Barbaro, who could not immediately be reached for comment, has previously discussed his plans to bring Sedona to Tennessee. Last summer, Barbaro told Richmond Biz Sense he had signed a franchise agreement to develop a Nashville location.

The Broadstone Germantown, which opened its doors to residents last year, is one of a slew of recent projects contributing to the trendy neighborhood’s surge in available apartments. (How big is that surge? Nearly 3,000 apartments and condos are proposed, underway or newly opened in Germantown, according to our Crane Watch map.)

Representatives of Alliance Residential Co., the Phoenix-based developers of Broadstone Germantown, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The permit application calls for work on 3,000 square feet of space for the restaurant, with a price tag of $1 million.
