About Us

House of Cards is Nashville’s newest and most unique dining and entertainment experience.

Located underground in a one of a kind 10,000 square foot space, the venue offers an evening for guests unlike any other in the history of the South.

Once guests arrive, they begin a journey via secret tunnel which leads to a magical world that has been characterized as indescribable by anyone who’s visited. From the beautiful handcrafted bar, to the multimillion dollar collection of art, European antiques and magic-related artifacts, the interior is the result of four years of design, planning and artisanship resulting in a one of a kind ambience not found anywhere else in the world. 

House of Cards celebrates the art of magic, classic American cuisine and fine hand-crafted cocktails under one roof. Guests are encouraged to explore the dining room to enjoy the rare collections and be entertained by some of America’s top magicians who are stationed throughout the venue to provide mind boggling illusions and tricks all evening long.

To further enhance the experience, House of Cards has a dress code and no-photography policy to ensure the privacy of guests. Reservations are encouraged, walk-ins are welcome subject to availability and dress code. Complimentary tickets to magic performances in the showroom are included with purchase of an entrée.

Please, no outside bottles.
