New Electric Jane offers live entertainment, breakfast plates, and Cannoli-Topped Espresso martinis

The Electric Jane, a new collaborative restaurant and live entertainment experience from hospitality veterans Jason Scuba and Sam Bachchandpur, opened over the weekend between Nashville’s Gulch and Row areas.

Located at 1301 Division Street, the new lively restaurant and entertainment venue promises to serve up a “high-energy” brunch along with extensive à la carte dinners and late-night menus. Chef Ryan Costanza’s menu is inspired around the world, with dinner options like tuna crispy rice, tartare steak, edamame falafel, and Parisian gnocchi.

The brunch menu offers French omelettes stacked with caviar, cinnamon rolls, crab Benedict, and funfetti donuts, and breakfast bars designed for both carnivores and vegetarians alike. And of course, there’s a brunch of avocado and Kale Spa toast plus build your own Mary. The late-night menu veers in a completely different direction, with Detroit-style pizza, burgers, fries, and Gifford’s bologna sandwich. And of course, there are afternoon-to-evening cocktails, ranging from espresso martini crested cannoli to maple bacon.

Not to be confused with other Nashville restaurants/bars Jane’s Hideaway and the newly opened East Nashville pub, Plain Jane, Electric Jane is named after Scoppa’s grandmother, and the owners say the interior design and overall tone of the venue are inspired by her “piercing” blue eyes. The interior of Electric Jane spans 7,500 square feet and was designed by Scoppa, who has spent decades programming scene-defining spaces in Southern California such as Bardot and The Green Door. A teal tufted banquette surrounds a hexagonal rod of Carrara marble, complete with a luminous display halo.

“Jane’s eyes were electric, they were very blue,” co-founder Jason Scuba said. “I’ve spent my childhood tagging along with low-light dinners at fun clubs on Saturday nights. We often end up in the same spot the next morning for lunch. The Electric Jane offers a contemporary look here, evoking nostalgia in a modern way through design. food, drinks, and programming.”

Scoppa and Bakhshandehpour previously teamed up to launch Hollywood’s iconic Sayers Club, which combined a quality house band with emerging and established singers in an intimate and luxurious setting. The Sayers Club has produced weekly shows from legends like Prince, Slash and Stevie Wonder, all in front of an intimate audience of just 300 guests.

Electric Jane is open for dinner at 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, and for weekend brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can make reservations on OpenTable here.
