Sinema is housed in Nashville's historic Melrose theatre. The theatre opened in 1942 and quickly became a local hotspot throughout the 40s and 50s. Our goal was to keep the essence of the old theatre, while updating it to reflect the modern dining service we provide. Whether you're looking for a private, intimate space for a few friends in Music City or a place to host a corporate cocktail party, we have the space. We have several options, including 3 intimate private rooms, cozy seating nooks and rock-and-roll inspired lounge areas that can be rented privately, to bring a dramatic flair to your events. Enjoy creative American-inspired custom menus from Executive Chef Kyle Patterson, filled with seasonal influences and inspirations. Options range from passed appetizers to family-style dinners and private tasting menus. Planning a large event? Ask about a full venue rental!
