This origin story is rooted in friendship. In late summer 2017, on the eve of the Pilgrimage Festival, an idea was born at a barbeque down in Lieper’s Fork.Sam Fox, the 12-time James Beard Award Nominee and Founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts, along with new friends and old friends, enjoyed a long night of storytelling, collaboration and camaraderie. They
would take the best elements in hospitality, music, design and entertainment and bring it to iconic lower Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee. The spirit of the original supper clubs is woven into every aspect of The Twelve Thirty Club – a multi-faceted venue located at Fifth & Broadway, the crossroads of Nashville’s rustic roots and cosmopolitan style. At The Twelve Thirty Club, not only is everyone welcome, everyone is an honorary member.
A progressive three-story experience, headlined by food and music. We welcome you on the first floor with an elevated Honky Tonk vibe; then up a striking staircase, first landing at our intimate 50-person cocktail lounge, aptly named Honorary Member, where killer cocktails and small shared bites delight. Then, onto the star of the show: an iconic, 400-seat, dapper-as-hell Supper Club designed to deliver an unforgettable dining and drinking experience where live music performances fill the room with soul, and dinner should last an entire evening. Finally, complete the affair by taking in a commanding view of the city from our posh rooftop terrace, where lush greenery and outdoor fireplaces create the perfect spot for midnight cocktails with friends.
A different menu will meet you at every level of The Twelve Thirty Club. From playful yet refined bar fare to upscale dining with simplicity and style, expect craveable American Classics with a touch of Southern influence and unexpected whimsy. While the first floor offers cold local beer and inventive cocktails, the champagne and wine program will steal the show in the Supper Club.
Seven nights a week, music enlivens The Twelve Thirty Club with original performances on the massive Supper Club stage. Undiscovered acts, household names, DJs, or an impromptu jam can happen night. Our only standard is that the music is unforgettable; and when the music is curated by one of Tennessee’s favorite sons, you never know who might show up.
New York-based architecture and design company whose designs are characterized by a unique convergence between the ideals of the past and an off-beat, forward-looking sensibility; the perfect match to realize the vision for this multi-level dining, cocktail, and music experience.
