Nashville feeling the pinch.
Restaurant adjacent to arena looking at 50% loss of business (from non-games).
While some of that impact has been buffered by other events that have lured people downtown, bars and restaurants on the popular strip have their fingers crossed that the dispute will end before the slower winter months.
In recent years, Predators games have been a boon for restaurants and bars in the area as visiting teams and fans have flooded the area with business. The games generate an annual economic impact of about $410 million in job creation and spending, according to a study commissioned and paid for by the team. Those games and other arena events such as concerts pump $91 million a year in spending at retailers and restaurants downtown, the study showed.
