Party Fowl Opens in Cool Springs

Music City’s favorite one-of-a-kind hot chicken restaurant has announced plans to bring its fiery fowl to Franklin. Party Fowl—famous for its unique hot chicken dishes—will open at 1914 Galleria Blvd in Cool Springs this month, marking its fourth location to open in just five years. The restaurant, which opened its flagship location in downtown Nashville in 2014, also operates locations in Donelson and Murfreesboro. 

Located in the former Kona Grill at Cool Springs Galleria, the 7,077-square-foot restaurant will offer indoor seating for 240 guests, plus a patio that will accommodate an additional 70 guests. The space will also boast Party Fowl’s signature wall-to-wall big screen TVs, a large private event space and a massive, full-service bar extending more than 45 feet. 

Guests of the Franklin location will have the opportunity to enjoy all of Party Fowl’s signature hot chicken dishes, which are available in five heat levels ranging from mild to “Poultrygeist,” all created by Executive Chef Bart Pickens.
