Ole Red is Serious About Safety. Seriously.

We take your safety, and the safety of our team and artists seriously. We’ve put enhanced measures in place at every guest and staff touchpoint to ensure that your experience is safe and fun. And we have the support from our team at Ryman Hospitality Properties and Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville to make sure that we have the very best safeguards and training in place so that you can feel good about your visit to Ole Red.

  • To ensure safe social distancing, we are operating with limited capacity in the building, as well as limited guest seating for groups of six or less.
  • The Ole Red staff is required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and receive temperature checks before shifts. That means that you will see our staff in masks during your visit.

  • For the interim, we are only seating tables of six guests or less due to social distancing guidelines.
