Douglas Corner Cafe began in 1987 when Recording Engineer, Mervin Louque, partnered with businessman, Rick Martin, to create a music venue aimed at showcasing new singers and songwriters in Nashville. It soon grew to become a well known Home Away From Home for Nashville's top songwriters and future music stars. It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music. At Douglas Corner, you will often be entertained by future hit songs long before they are even heard by the artists who will eventually record them. It is also where one might often witness an impromptu jam session with legendary artists, players and writers.
