OUR STORY


Photography by Patrick Sheehan

We are bar people. When we go out to a bar, we go not to be seen, but to see our friends. We go for a beer list that is not only extensive, but designed to showcase beers of only the highest quality.

We are restaurant people. When we go to a restaurant, we go not just to eat but to share something special with our friends. We go to eat food made with love, forethought, and personality.

But as we found out, sometimes to get what you want you have to build it yourself.

So we did.


Opened in June 2006, The 12 South Taproom & Grill has been committed to providing the 12 South Neighborhood in Nashville, TN with quality food, drink, and atmosphere. With an ambiance as eclectic as its patrons, the Taproom serves as an inviting home to all the residents of 12 South and beyond.

Our made-to-order culinary delights, distinct libations, and well-informed staff create an experience that is simultaneously novel and intimately familiar. We are honored to pour our hearts and our beer out carefully for you, our friends and our family. Join us at our home away from home sometime.

Eats

Using the culinary prowess of head chef and owner Will Shuff as a road map, the Taproom has established itself as one of Nashville’s premiere casual dining experiences. The secret stems not only from talent but the quality of ingredients. From local, organic produce to grass fed, free-range Tennessee beef, the made-to-order meals at the Taproom will be sure to satisfy the most discerning of palettes.



Drinks

We are a beer bar by proclamation. With this in mind we take pride in presenting what we believe to be a line up with such variety, depth, and quality it can only be described as strong like bull. The list is a collaborative effort from the team here at the Taproom. We all love beer and we all have a distinct perspective. We want you to enjoy this timeless libation as much as we do because, after all, teamwork is dreamwork.
