Food & Good Vibes Meant for Sharing

Butcher & Bee opened our first location in Charleston in 2011 with the simple mission of serving sandwiches made with flavor combinations and food quality usually reserved for fine dining. In 2015, Butcher & Bee expanded to Nashville and set a new goal of creating world-class experiences for guests and team members. The East Nashville location is now the only Butcher & Bee, though our mission and company have grown to include multiple concepts in Atlanta, Charleston, and East Nashville.

Besides Butcher & Bee, HTG Hospitality also operates Redheaded Stranger and Fancypants in East Nashville. The Stranger is a casual, Texan inspired taco shop, while Fancypants is a delicious and irreverent take on fine-dining.
