Ever since closing his successful Branson theatre in 2006, Ray has dreamed of building a Vegas-style Showroom in Nashville reminiscent of favorite venues he worked in his early career. He wanted to create an intimate setting where fans could enjoy a nice dinner and cocktails while up close and personal with their favorite artists.
When visiting the CabaRay, patrons will immediately experience Ray’s attention to every detail, from the impressive custom lighting piece in the lobby, to the built in trophy cases displaying memorabilia from Ray’s iconic career, to the elegant crystal chandeliers, Ray’s personal touch is evident in every corner of the building.
The Showroom walls are covered in vintage black and white photographs honoring the producers and musicians who turned Nashville into “Music City”. Ray also designed six custom red leather corner banquettes each honoring legendary Nashville producers who were impactful in Ray’s career – Chet Atkins, Owen Bradley, Shelby Singleton, Fred Foster, Jerry Kennedy and Billy Sherrill.
Come to the CabaRay and enjoy the food, the shows and the fun, but also be sure to take in all of the history and memorabilia that surrounds you in this remarkable place!
