Highland Strip music venue announces opening date

After an extensive renovation, the Highland Strip is ready to reveal its newest occupant.

The Bluff, a concert hall meets sports bar located at 535 S. Highland St. and adjacent to the new Newby’s, will open its doors Monday, Jan. 9, at 5 p.m.

Nickle Smith, Hudson Chadwick and Austin Wallace — owners of The Bluff — signed a lease for the tenant bay in April 2016 from Loeb Properties Inc. Chadwick also owns Rafters in Oxford, Mississippi.

Since signing the lease, the trio has transformed the space into an 8,000-square-foot venue complete with three bars — about 100 total linear feet of bar, to be exact — two outdoor patios, a main stage and more than 30 TVs for sporting events. One of the three bars is located on a mezzanine level overlooking the stage.
