Overlord is Melvil Arnt's newest East Nashville Project.
Born and raised in Paris, France and moved to East Nashville in 2015, he opened the Family French bistro "Once upon a time in France" with his father at 1102 Gallatin Avenue in 2019.
The original idea of Overlord was to open a European Inspired Bar with a good selection of Beers, Wine, and Cocktails, all reasonably priced in a friendly and stunning 1940's interior, with free pool table, and live music from the past.
Overlord came from the love of history, the love of Europe, and the love of these classic elegant establishments of a time long past.
Arnt will is to open many unique businesses in the Eastside.
After finishing the work at Overlord, Arnt started to work on another project called "The Authentique", a small neighborhood Wine bar.
About the name Overlord here is Mel's Explanation:
In June 6th 1944, Operation Overlord was launched.
American soldiers, along with British and Canadians, fought with extraordinary courage
a battle that changed the course of history and saved the world against the tyranny of Nazi Germany
With my bar Overlord, I want to give an homage to these soldiers, who left their family and friends, the comfort of their homes, and their country to liberate Europe and the World.
As you sip a cocktail in our establishment,
As you enjoy the sweet kiss of that drink, the comfortable seat, the warm ambiance and the friendly people around you,
As you enjoy the mostly peaceful era we inherited,
may the bravery of these soldiers be in a corner of your head.
May their courage never be forgotten
May we never forget those who fought,
and those that gave their life to ensure a generation bathed in freedom and love.
315,501 Tennesseans served in World War 2.
Cheer to them!
Cheer to us!
Cheers to Freedom!
Cheers to Peace!
Melvil Arnt, owner.
