A collection of historical and genalogical records
Douglas Corner Cafe, a premier Nashville venue that has hosted performances by artists as varied as Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Guy Clark, Kevin Costner, Jon Bon Jovi, and Neil Diamond, closed its doors for good after 33 years. A key destination in the city’s Eighth Avenue South neighborhood, the club has been shuttered since March 15th 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Nashville’s subsequent stay-at-home order.
Douglas Corner owner Mervin Louque, a one-time recording engineer who initially partnered with businessman Rick Martin to open the cafe in 1987, announced the permanent closure in a Facebook video. Martin, who was also the longtime road manager for late singer-songwriter David Olney, died in 2015.
