M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers to Open in Franklin, Tennessee

100% Kona Coffee

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers has plans to expand to Franklin Tennessee, announces founder Austin Ray. M.L.Rose Franklin, the brand’s second new location announced for 2024, is expected to open at 3084 Columbia Avenue, a former Chili’s location, in the spring.

Guests can expect the well-known ‘get out without getting fancy’ atmosphere found in established M.L.Rose locations, including a comfortable, lively and relaxed space that celebrates the spirit of the neighborhood. M.L.Rose Franklin will be uniquely designed to cater to the local sports crowd with ample space and TV coverage. The location will also feature a covered, dog-friendly patio in addition to a spacious turf area and outdoor fireplace.

Financing for both projects totals over $7.5 million, including the purchase of the building at 3701 Gallatin Pike in Inglewood.

The original M.L.Rose opened on 8th Avenue South in 2008 and quickly became a neighborhood staple. 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, M.L.Rose Capitol View, which opened in 2017. M.L.Rose Mt. Juliet, the first location outside of Nashville, opened in 2021. In addition to Franklin, M.L.Rose plans to open a location in East Nashville’s Inglewood neighborhood in 2024.

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 some of the Nashville area’s favorite 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 and weekend brunch.

All M.L.Rose burgers now feature dry-aged, pasture-raised and locally, sustainably sourced beef from Porter Road. Additional details for the Franklin location, including a specific opening timeline, will be released at a later date.

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers is a locally owned chain of neighborhood pubs founded in Nashville, TN. Since 2008, the pubs have become well-known for their eclectic and lived-in feel, extensive seasonal beer offerings, quality burgers and crisp waffle fries. At M.L.Rose, we welcome all visitors as good neighbors and strive to be good neighbors in each of our locations’ unique communities.

Neighbors and visitors enjoy burgers that range from classic to crafty, accompanied by piles of signature waffle fries. The menu is rounded out by quality pub food, including indulgent sandwiches, beer-braised wings, top-voted nachos, and fresh, crisp salads and wraps.

The M.L.Rose story began in 2008 in Nashville’s Melrose neighborhood. Melrose was on the verge of revival but didn’t yet have a great neighborhood bar. So, with a strong passion for craft beer and sharing it with friends, Austin Ray opened the first M.L.Rose location where studio musicians, hospitality workers, and celebrities mingle with local residents to create a laid-back, full-of-life, stay-a-while kind of place. While M.L.Rose solidified itself as a neighborhood staple through a focus on quality, its early alignment with the soon-to-explode craft beer market is what sparked further growth. The second M.L.Rose location opened in Sylvan Park in 2012. The third M.L.Rose opened in late 2017 as the first restaurant tenant in Capitol View. The fourth M.L.Rose, in the Providence development in Mt. Juliet, opened in 2021 as the brand’s first venture outside of Metro Nashville.

M.L.Rose is owned and operated by Nashville native Austin Ray of A.Ray Hospitality also manages local brands Von Elrod’s Beer Hall & Kitchen and Melrose Billiard Parlor. For more information, visit and
