After being dark since last September, the former Up and Under Pub, 1214 E. Brady St. will become “Nashville North,” as my colleague Jeramey Jannene reported last week. “Details are scant,” he wrote, “but a large window sign makes the intention clear: a new live music venue is coming to Brady Street.”

A search of business records shows that “Nashville North, LLC,” was incorporated on November 11th, 2020 by Jeffrey Jon Marsh, using the New Berlin address of The Charcoal Grill & Rotisserie, a chain restaurant he has operated since its first outlet opened in Racine in 1996.

Marsh confirmed his connection in an email to Urban Milwaukee, and filled in some of the details of the proposed operation:

Yes, I’m the one who is taking the former Up and Under space. We are just starting the process of getting building permits & applying for our liquor license. Nashville North will be a live music venue, featuring all types of music genres. We will have open mic nights, a featured house band. If you have been to Nashville you would find the same…. I currently own and operate the Charcoal Grill restaurant chain. We have seven locations throughout  southeast Wisconsin.
