William Collier's Room at Marathon Music Works

The William Collier’s Room at Marathon Music Works is an ideal combination of rugged and refined. Once a part of the Marathon Motor Works manufactory, William Collier’s is rooted in history. Our logo is the signature of Marathon Motor Cars chief engineer, William Collier, who was responsible for crafting luxurious automobiles a century ago. Embrace with industrial feel with the roll up windows and polished concrete floor. Take note of the custom touches that make this bar unlike any other.

Nashville and New York resident artist, James Willis, hand-sketched the bar top design from original Marathon Motor Car blueprints. The base of the bar itself is constructed from reclaimed wood salvaged from the manufactory. Custom lighting around the room is best showcased by our locally designed steel chandelier with Edison bulbs.

With almost 1300 sq. ft. of indoor space and 550 sq. ft. of outdoor patio space, William Collier’s has a max standing capacity of 100. Contact our Event Director to learn about hosting your event at The William Collier’s Room at Marathon Music Works.
