Extreme makeover Highland Strip edition is in full swing, and one of its future tenants plans to bring a piece of the Big Easy to the Bluff City.
In April, news broke that a new music venue and Cajun-inspired restaurant titled The Bluff had signed a lease at 535 S. Highland St., and now the owners are serving up their plans.
“When I came here, I was looking for another concept,” said Nickle Smith, one of the three owners of The Bluff. “I thought the space was so cool; me and Hudson [Chadwick] linked up; and here we are today.”
Smith, Chadwick and Austin Wallace are the three people behind the future music hall, restaurant and sports bar mashup. Chadwick also owns Rafters Music and Food and The Corner Bar in Oxford, Mississippi.
