M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers new location to open May 17

Providence Marketplace in Mt. Juliet is the local chain’s fourth location

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers will open its newest location on May 17, announces founder Austin Ray. This will be the fourth location for the local chain – the first outside of Nashville – located in Providence Marketplace in Mt. Juliet at 401 S Mt. Juliet Road, Ste 130. Open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, hours for M.L.Rose Providence will be Monday – Thursday, 11 a.m. to Midnight, Friday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 a.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

M.L.Rose Providence is a 6,153 square feet restaurant and bar, making it the largest in the company. It will feature multiple dining areas that boast open air garage doors, a fireplace, and a newly constructed bar with 36 taps. There also will be a brand-new outdoor deck, which is pet friendly, and multiple dining areas with garage doors for an indoor/outdoor feel.

“Mt. Juliet is an ideal place for our first M.L.Rose outside of Nashville, and we have had a great time collecting memorabilia from the area to help design the look and feel of the place,” said Ray. “We think we’ve found a winning combination of what makes M.L.Rose a great place to relax away from home and work and what makes Mt. Juliet a vibrant area, all the while listening to the community and what they’re looking for.”

The original M.L.Rose opened on 8th Avenue South in 2008 and quickly became a staple of the neighborhood. The combination of great burgers, pub food and a focus on the emerging craft beer market prompted rapid growth, as well as the second location on Charlotte Avenue, which opened in 2012, and M.L.Rose Capitol View, which opened in 2017. The popular M.L.Rose food truck serves public and private events through the greater Nashville area.

M.L.Rose Providence will offer the same ‘get out without getting fancy’ atmosphere its other locations have established, including a comfortable, lively and relaxed feel that celebrates the spirit of the neighborhood. With the M.L.Rose brand now well-known to craft beer lovers, guests can expect an expansive craft beer menu with 36 local and craft beers on tap, as well as craft burgers served with a crispy pile of signature waffle fries, pub food favorites like nachos, and wings, and fresh items like sandwiches and salads for lunch, dinner, happy hour, late night drinks and eats, and weekend brunch.

“It's a real privilege to open a new M.L.Rose in a community like Mt. Juliet, and it’s a joy to bring new energy into this building after what everyone has been through in the past year. Most of us are overdue to hang out with our friends and neighbors over beer and a burger” says Ray.

Construction for M.L.Rose Providence is by Ideal Co, and financing is through Reliant Bank. Providence Marketplace is a premier shopping, dining and entertainment district featuring a variety of popular national brands and treasured local establishments. For more information, visit

About M.L.Rose M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers is a Nashville-based and locally owned chain of neighborhood pubs founded in 2008. The pubs are well-known for their eclectic and lived-in feel, extensive seasonal beer offerings, quality burgers and waffle fries. Everyone is a good neighbor at M.L.Rose; all who visit are welcome, and the team is involved in and contributes to the communities surrounding the pubs.

Neighbors and visitors enjoy a burger menu ranging from classic to crafty, accompanied by a pile of crispy, signature waffle fries. The menu is rounded out by quality pub food including indulgent sandwiches, wings, top-voted nachos, and fresh, crisp salads and wraps.

The M.L.Rose “Beer Council” carefully selects about 36 draft beers and 100 total beers for the menu at each location. The core draft beer menu changes seasonally and provides a foundation of hand-picked beer to be enjoyed again and again. Several taps are reserved for collaborations with local and notable craft breweries, limited releases and exclusive offerings.

For the less-experienced beer lover, M.L.Rose has thoughtfully divided its colorful menu into categories according to flavor profile and offers flights of beer and samples to try. A cocktail menu and full bar are also available.

The original M.L.Rose (then Melrose Neighborhood Pub) opened in December 2008. The resulting neighborhood watering hole, located on 8th Ave South in Melrose, became a ‘third place’ that the neighborhood lacked – a comfortable spot to unwind and socialize outside of the home and office. The combination of quality food and a focus on the emerging craft beer market spurred further growth, as well as the second M.L.Rose location in Sylvan Park, which opened in 2012. The third location opened in late 2017 after M.L.Rose became the first restaurant tenant to come aboard in Capitol View. M.L.Rose’s first venture outside of Metro Nashville opens in Spring of 2021 in the Providence development in Mt. Juliet, TN.

M.L.Rose is owned and operated by Nashville native Austin Ray of A.Ray Hospitality, which also owns and operates Von Elrod’s Beer Hall & Kitchen, The Sutler, Melrose Billiard Parlor, and Rambler Cocktail Bar. For more information, visit
