INFINITY HOSPITALITY GROUP LAUNCHES ICONIC MUSIC VENUE: 12th & PORTER
NASHVILLE, TN (December 15, 2015) – 12th & Porter, one of Nashville’s most iconic music venues, will re-open for business on February 5th, 2016. Concertgoers looking to attend events will now have the opportunity to experience the recently renovated venue and its calendar of events.
Since its creation, 12th & Porter has been a quintessential space in the Nashville music scene. Because of the eclectic mix of artists it attracted and its prime location in the heart of Nashville, 12th & Porter quickly became one of the Southeast’s most distinguished concert venues.
For over 30 years, fans and artists have gathered on a nightly basis to experience live music in an environment that truly appreciates the music that is being created on stage. Acts who have appeared on the 12th & Porter stage over the years include: Neil Young, Vince Gill, Kings of Leon, Run-DMC, Townes Van Zandt, and John Prine.
Lead by Infinity Hospitality Group, 12th & Porter underwent extensive renovations throughout 2015 to improve the guest experience. The facility now features state-of-the-art sound and production equipment that is rarely found in venues of its size.
Infinity Hospitality Group is headed by native Nashville entrepreneur Nathaniel Beaver and culinary expert Tabor Luckey. The company has a track record of running top-tier Nashville venues including The Bridge Building Event Spaces, The Bell Tower, The Harding House at Belle Meade Plantation, and Bria Bistro.
12th & Porter will be open daily from 4:00pm to 3:00am and will host an array of local and national acts seven nights a week. The restaurant will feature a brand new menu and extensive beer selection that will be available until 3:00am every night.
While the venue spares no expense in creating the ultimate concert experience for its guests, the new 12th & Porter strives to create an atmosphere that is equally enjoyable for its artists. “We are thrilled to re-open such an iconic space in the Nashville music community and provide the city with another elite venue,” Beaver said. “We look forward to working with the musicians and artists to host events that really make this city special.”
