The award-winning rehabilitation of Woolworth on 5th at 225 Fifth Avenue North helped preserve the history of this building in the Fifth Avenue National Register Historic District, a significant place in Nashville’s Civil Rights Movement. The former F.W. Woolworth five-and-dime store, with its segregated lunch counters, was home to some of the first landmark sit-ins in the 1960s. The restaurant and event spaces, including the mezzanine and basement, feature many original details, including gilded handrails, wall accents, and hand-laid tile. Elements that could not be preserved were carefully recreated to match the original.
