Nashville’s Newest Downtown Event Spaces.  This historic church location, dating back to 1874, has been transformed to a modern open floor plan venue.  This church was the first church built in Nashville by freed slaves after the Civil War.  Part of the original sub-flooring is comprised of salvaged wood from homes destroyed during the war.  The location functioned as an african american church until the late 60s (St Paul’s AME).  After that time it served as a night club, warehouse, and most recently housed the EOA Architecture offices.The property was purchased by Singer/Songwriter Brett James at the end of 2012.  After entertaining different concepts and options for the space, he partnered with Infinity Events & Catering and their vision for an event and concert venue.  The newly named Bell Tower opened in November of 2014. Exposed beams, natural light, upper level mezzanine, full on site kitchen, bridal lounges, and state of the art light and sound are sure to make this venue one of the most desired spots in downtown Nashville. Accommodating seated dinners for up to 400 and cocktail style receptions for 700, this location is the single largest free standing downtown venue.
