Family Wash, 12th & Porter Among Music Venues Evolving to Stay Alive

Today’s Tennessean features Family Wash and 12th & Porter, two Bonelaw clients, in a cover story about Nashville music venues adapting and changing in order to stay afloat. While most of Music City is under construction with additions and renovations, a growing concern exists among residents that the city’s legacy and character will be lost with the new changes. These venue owners, though, believe growth is a good thing, if done correctly.

Family Wash, which opened in 2002 in a former laundromat in East Nashville, closed Feb. 21. It will reopen in late spring/early summer in a space three times bigger that includes more seating, standing room space and new audio/visual recording and streaming capabilities. Read more about the plans here.

12th & Porter, a venue known for hosting showcases of superstars like Keith Urban and Kings of Leon, closed Feb. 28 and will reopen under new ownership May 1. Infinity Restaurant Group has a renewed focus on the food they will serve and plans to create a spot where people can regularly go to be entertained. Read more about the plans here.
