Built in 1883, The Cannery was originally a flour mill and later a place to grind coffee. The building earned its name when the Dale Food company bought it in 1957 and began processing food. Owner Perry Dale eventually opened a restaurant in the building and named it "The Cannery" in the early 1970's. The building housed a country music theatre in the late 70's and evolved into one of Nashville's primary music venues in the 80's and early 90's.
Today, ONE lives on the third floor of the historic structure, nestled among Nashville's iconic music venues, Mercy Lounge, The High Watt, and The Cannery Ballroom.
