About M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers (then Melrose Neighborhood Pub) opened on December 9, 2008. The resulting neighborhood watering hole, located at 2353 8th Ave South in 8th Ave/Melrose, became a ‘third place’ – a comfortable spot to unwind & socialize outside of the home & office. The combination of great burgers, fresh pub food and a focus on the emerging craft beer market spurred rapid growth, as well as the second M.L.Rose location at 4408 Charlotte Avenue, which opened in 2012. The third location opened in late 2017 after M.L.Rose became the first retail tenant to come aboard at Capitol View, a 32-acre mixed-use district at 431 11th Ave North.

The craft beer menu at M.L.Rose is well-known to craft beer lovers for its thoughtful, expansive, and diverse menu, with roughly 100 beers available at each of the three locations at any given time. Each location offers 34 local and craft beers on tap featuring an array of styles from Nashville & beyond.

Today, neighbors enjoy a burger menu ranging from traditional to crafty, all made with 100% Angus beef that is always fresh, natural, and hormone/antibiotic-free. All burgers are served with a pile of crispy, signature waffle fries. The menu is rounded out by simple pub food including indulgent sandwiches, top-voted nachos, as well as fresh, crisp salads and wraps.

M.L.Rose is owned and operated by Austin Ray as part of the A.Ray Hospitality, a Nashville-based hospitality group that also owns and operates Von Elrod’s Beer Hall & Kitchen, The Sutler, Melrose Billiard Parlor, and newly opened Rambler Cocktail Bar. For more information, visit
