Indoor And Outdoor Plaza Set To Open In Nashville Friday

An indoor and outdoor plaza like no other opens Friday in Nashville. 

A Nashville couple has spent years turning an old South Nashville grocery store into what they call "an indoor city within a city." 

The one stop shop for food, shopping, and entertainment is a 100,000 square foot indoor and outdoor mixed-use space called Plaza Mariachi.  It is set to open to the public May 12th at 5 pm.

As soon as you walk through the doors of what was once the Kroger on Nolensville Road, you will be transported to a Latin American City. 

The portion of the center that is the indoor plaza has five "street" that are filled with shops, a market, an arcade, and even radio stations and a stage.  The details will have you entranced as the entire center is full of Latin flair with 180 different colors of paint and 24,000 handmade tiles.

This project includes 10 restaurants and cafes to choose from and has created 200 jobs for Nashville. 

Owner Dian Janbakhsh said, "Every business will have a different feel, a different home, and we thought it would just be appropriate to have them with different details, some of the different structures you would see if you’re walking in Puerto Rico or Venezuela or Mexico, and really bring that authenticity to Nashville."
