About the Venue

Tucked away in West Nashville, OZ is a contemporary space that has been designed to house modern art installations and host the city’s most elite events.  Located in the former headquarters of CAO Cigars and owned by brand founders, the Ozgener family, OZ has been deemed by Nashville Former Mayor Karl Dean as, “the hidden jewel of the city.”

OZ features five distinctly unique spaces for truly memorable events.  From the dramatic Ultra Lounge Patio with retractable glass doors, majestic views, and romantic fire pit area, to the magically peaceful Zen Garden with exotic foliage–OZ contains one-of-a-kind spaces to create unforgettable moments.  The venue also boasts one of the world’s largest walk-in cigar humidors, The Escaparate, which held over 100,000 premium cigars.  The 9,000 square-foot Grand Salon provides a sizable blank canvas to create the original environment you envision accommodating up to 850 people.

OZ prides itself on its staff of creative, helpful, and customer-friendly people.  Our team will provide you with attentive, one-on-one service and has a variety of professional resources at your disposal.  Our goal is to assist you in creating an event they soon won’t forget.
