|12th & Porter|
Anyone who has seen a show at 12th & Porter will probably tell you it is one of the best sounding rooms in Nashville. What they will also tell you, if they have been in Nashville for more than 24 hours, is that the club is not only Nashvilles’, but also one of the country’s premiere and legendary clubs. The home of classic live recordings dating back to Townes Van Zandt’s Live and Obscure, the stage at 12th and Porter has hosted to some of the greatest touring artists and songwriters ever to play. Ryan Adams dropped 12th and Porter’s name in the lyrics of his Demolition record. Over the course of the thousands of shows and bands that have played at 12th and Porter, the club has experienced countless once in a lifetime moments.
It’s doubtful that Ralph Petway knew he was starting a tradition when he opened his Beer Garden at 1022 Woodland in 1949. However, over the last 55 years, this spot at the crossroads of East Nashville has continued to be a meeting place for the neighborhood. All these establishments provided the community a place to kick back, share a drink and visit with friends. Whether you enjoy sitting by one of the big, roll up windows and watching your neighbors go by, playing a game of darts, watching the game on TV at the bar or perhaps a quiet conversation under the stars on the Ralph Petway Beer Garden Patio, our goal is to make you feel at home.
