Tin Roof, a chain of bar and restaurants with live music that originated in Nashville, is moving into the spot where Cheli's Chili Bar used to be.

Located at 47 E. Adams just a stone's throw from Comerica Park, Ford Field and Little Caesars Arena, Tin Roof boasts a "Southern-inspired" menu with items like biscuit sliders, a shrimp and andouille sausage grinder and dressed up macaroni and cheese. 

Tin Roof is expected to book local, regional and national musicians to perform. 

"Detroit is such a great city with a great musical heritage and it has been on our radar for a long time," said Tin Roof CEO Bob Franklin in a press release issued this week from Olympia Development. 

Tin Roof opened in Nashville in 2002 and since then has expanded to more than a dozen locations throughout the country including restaurants in the South, Midwest and California.
