Venue Features
The Scene:

Built in 1874, The Bell Tower was one of the first churches built in Nashville by freed slaves after the Civil War. Most of the neighborhood was demolished following World War II, and The Bell Tower is one of the last remaining original structures. The building has since been transformed into a modern, open floor plan venue.

Design:
The renovated space maintains much of the building’s history and character. The original beams and downstairs stonework remain, as well as the original sub-flooring, which is comprised of salvaged wood from homes destroyed during the war.
Standout Venue Features:

We have a Tasting Room which resides within the actual bell tower of the 140 year old building. This one of a kind bar is home to over 100 hand-picked bourbon, whiskey, and scotch selections. Bottles line the shelves on all four walls. The Tasting Room is the perfect location to sample well known favorites or try some unique small distillery spirits.

Extra Perks:
250 mahogany padded folding chairs and 25 round tables
