Harpeth Hotel

The Harpeth Hotel, a portion of the Harpeth Square Project in downtown Franklin, recently released the name of the hotel restaurant and coffee shop on their website.

Named after the same year Franklin became a city, 1799 Kitchen and Cocktails will offer an upscale dining experience with a yet to be named chef.

In addition, the hotel will offer a coffee shop titled McGavock’s Coffee Bar and Provisions. Described as a European style street cafe that will offer more than your ordinary coffee shop.

Downtown Franklin will also gain a new event space at the hotel. With over 5,000 square feet of space, that includes a ballroom and tech-forward boardroom to be used for your weddings, corporate event, and socials.

The Harpeth Hotel is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton. Supported by Hilton, each Curio Collection hotel takes on individual identity.

The hotel will be managed by Euan McGlashan and Valor Hospitality, a Global Bespoke Management Company with offices in the USA, UK & Europe, Africa and Asia. McGlashan previously developed and managed the Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa, which under his leadership was recognized by Condé Nast as the “Best Hotel in the World,” with the culture and guest experience delivery replicated today in their worldwide portfolio.

Harpeth Square, unprecedented both in scope and finish, spans an entire city block from Main Street to Bridge Street and First to Second avenues, including 12,000 square feet of retail space, 6,500 square feet of Class A office space and a 591-space, five-story parking garage. The projected completion of the $105 million development is slated for July 2019 on the hotel side, with the apartments and retail components opened starting in the Fall of 2019.

At the end of 2018, Harpeth Square announced the first retail space to be leased to A Moment’s Peace Day Spa. This will be their second location in Franklin, with the first one located on Carothers Parkway. The 5,800 square-foot Harpeth Square location of A Moment’s Peace will occupy 180 feet of retail storefront along First Avenue, which will face Puckett’s Boat House and the riverfront.
