Kid Rock’s Nashville Bar Loses Beer Permit Over COVID Violations

Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk and Rock & Roll Steakhouse will have its permit to sell beer suspended for five days after the Nashville venue served patrons at its bar — a violation of the city’s active public-health emergency order. Currently, watering holes in Tennessee’s Davidson County are prohibited from seating and serving customers at their bars.

A photo taken last weekend inside the subtly named entertainment venue, which is co-owned by Nashville businessman Steve Smith, showed a packed bar and no masks from most customers or servers. The latter is an infraction and led to its own separate citation. The temporary suspension of the beer permit was a result of a later inspection.


I’m surprised that it took this long for a bar to be caught violating rules/laws that have been implemented as states open back up. If you’re between the ages of 21-30, you know people aren’t going to listen to these rules. You may or may not but being back out on the town gives a little bit of normalcy back and it feels good. I don’t think this is the last place that is going to get busted. What I do think is that bars will start turning in to speak easy’s. People will find a way around rules that are implemented to get a taste of freedom and ordering a drink in a room full of sweaty people.
