[Updated]: Nashville Music Venue 12th & Porter To Reopen in February 2016

12th & PorterLongtime Nashville music venue 12th & Porter will reopen its doors on Feb. 5, 2016, with a performance from Chuck Mead & His Grassy Knoll BoysJP Harris, and The Howlin Brothers.

12th & Porter has nearly two dozen shows slated through May 2016, including performances from Anthony Smith, Coolio, O-Town, Skid Row, and Andrew Ripp.

The venue is now owned by Infinity Restaurant Group, which took over ownership of 12th & Porter in early 2015. The venue closed for remodeling, including improvements to sound and production, as well as interior remodeling and an expanded menu for customers.

Infinity Hospitality Group co-owner and Executive Chef Tabor Luckey worked with the culinary team to develop a menu featuring everything from regular bar fare to more unique offerings including fish tacos with chipotle Crème fraîche, the meatloaf sandwich with caramelized onions, and Jack Daniels chocolate bread pudding. The menu will also feature bone and boneless wings with a number of flavors including mango habanero, dry rub, green onion sriracha and other house specialties.

12th & Porter’s upper mezzanine has been expanded to provide a better view of the stage for guests. They have partnered with 4Wall Entertainment to install an upgraded sound/lighting system throughout the entire venue. The new remodel includes a five-camera HD video setup with recording and streaming capabilities. The bar in the restaurant has been adjusted to provide more room for guests.

“We are thrilled to re-open such an iconic space in the Nashville music community and provide the city with another elite venue,” says Infinity Hospitality Group’s president and co-owner Nathaniel Beaver. “We look forward to working with all types of artists to host events that really make this city special.”

Since its opening in the 1980s, 12th & Porter has welcomed performers including Vince Gill, Neil Young, John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Run-DMC and more.
