A new West End restaurant and music venue is ready to take the stage.

The Tin Pan will open for business Feb. 14 at 8982 Quioccasin Road in Quioccasin Station shopping center.

Owners Lisa Harrison and Kevin Liu have converted the 5,000-square-foot former Don Pedro Mexican Restaurant into a space that can hold 150 and has what they call cabaret-style seating.

Harrison said she’s lined up a mix of national, regional and local acts to perform at The Tin Pan. Ticket prices range from $5 to $35.

Performers scheduled for The Tin Pin span the genres of classical, jazz and Americana and include Tom Paxton, Iris Dement and the Dixie Power Trio.

“We’ll have to give it some time of course, but I’m hoping I’ve tapped into what people want,” Harrison said.

Renovations on the space cost between $75,000 and $100,000, Harrison said. Stinson Williford built The Tin Pan’s bar and stage.

In addition to the tunes, The Tin Pan will be cranking out food and beverages for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

A grand opening event will be held in March.

I am super excited to see activity in this area continue to expand. McCormack’s Big Whisky Grill is open at Regency, add this venue and we are talking! Can’t wait to see you open and come visit! Hope there is a dance floor…
