The popular Commodore Café, in Linden’s historic Commodore Hotel, is smartly tapping into Tennessee’s No. 1 export –music, and rebranding as the Commodore Music Café. Proprietors Kathy and Michael Dumont, known for their contribution to Linden and Perry County’s tourism developments, will enhance the Commodore Music Café by featuring local and regional music performers. A redesign of the space now features photos and art depicting local musical artists as well as musicians from across the state.
