with Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse Nashville

A private rehearsal dinner at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse exudes style and sophistication. Tastefully appointed with Art Deco details, our three luxurious private spaces provide the perfect backdrop for everything from intimate gatherings to large dinner celebrations.

The Speakeasy Room is ideal for gatherings of up to ten guests. As its name implies, you’ll be transported back in time as you enter the room through an authentic Speakeasy door – don’t worry, no secret knocks needed here! Featured inside the room are a century-old antique apothecary cabinet housing our premium liquor selection and a round glass tabletop with an iron base made of Roman numerals from a London clocktower.

Our namesake Jeff Ruby Room, rich with burgundy tones and velvet accents, features a long, wooden antique table suitable for fourteen guests. A white marble fireplace anchors this space as a true focal point providing the perfect background for photographs.

The Music City Room features soaring ceilings with glistening chandeliers and décor that celebrates what the Music City is all about. One-of-a-kind items like Al Capone’s fireplace facade, and artifacts from country music’s biggest stars like Conway Twitty and Tammy Wynette create a setting rich with history and elegance. Spacious at approximately 1,300 square feet, parties of up to sixty-six guests may celebrate in this room.

Each of these spaces have an attached semi-private patio that can be added to your package for enjoying the occasional cigar, breath of fresh air, or colorful Nashville sunset.

Our professional Sales & Relationship Manager will expertly guide you through the entire planning process to make it effortless for you. Prix-fixe menus include everything from hors d’oeuvres to dessert and can be customized to fit your tastes, needs and theme. 

Our Beverage team is blessed to be guided by our very own Advanced Sommelier and will provide you with wonderful wine selections from our wine list. We’re proud of our achievement of being honored with Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence for 2020. We recommend choosing two red and two white wine varietals to complement your menu choices and offer your guests variety. Many brides and grooms choose to feature a specialty cocktail for the evening and our team can customize a cocktail named just for your event.

Next, a rehearsal dinner cannot be perfect without our amazing service team. Our Servers and Servers Assistants take pride in providing the pinnacle of Nashville dining: The Jeff Ruby Experience.

We’ve long believed that live entertainment is essential to the ambiance of every dinner; so much so that we have our very own piano man playing live music while perched on the stage above our bar. In addition, we have extensive playlists curated by our Director of Hospitality creating the perfect mood and keeping the vibe lively for your night on the town. Additionally, guests in all of our Private Rooms have the option of connecting to Bluetooth speakers to stream your very own playlist. Each room also has either a flat screen or drop-down screen with laptop connection to play a photograph slideshow of you and your loved ones through the years.

Finally, we want you to feel as if our spaces were created just for you and your guests - we will happily customize the floorplan to your party size. We often recommend round tables topped with fine white table linen for a neutral palate to showcase your special colors. You may bring personalized décor and we are happy to assist with place-cards, flowers, candles and more to complete your perfect setting.
