A Look Inside: 12th and Porter

March 14, 2016 | Advertising Disclosure | Our Partners may be mentioned in this article.


12th and Porter, one of Nashville’s most iconic music venues, will reopen for business on February 5, 2016. The space underwent extensive renovations in 2015, including improvements to atmosphere, sound, and production. Infinity Hospitality Group, the company behind other top Nashville venues such as The Bridge Building, is leading the revitalization. 

“We are thrilled to reopen such an iconic space in the Nashville music community and provide the city with another elite venue,” said Infinity Hospitality Group’s founder, Nathaniel Beaver. “We look forward to working with the musicians and artists to host events that really make this city special.”

The new 12th and Porter will be open daily from 4pm to 3am. Music lovers can expect to see national and local acts seven nights a week. The restaurant will also feature a fresh menu and extensive beer selection that will be available until 3am.

12th and Porter has been a Nashville favorite for over 30 years, featuring notable acts like Neil Young, Kings of Leon, Run-DMC and John Prine. Concertgoers will finally be able to enjoy this music venue once again in 2016.

12th and Porter’s redesign is exactly what the space needed. It feels like a fresh version of the original venue. When you walk in, you see a large L-shaped bar with TVs throughout, which will feature the band’s performance in the other room. There are several tables and a small stage in the main bar area, too.

The concert hall, which is separated by a soundproof door, has a large upstairs section, standing room, and its own full bar.
