About the Taproom

We are a family friendly neighborhood taproom founded by the owners of the Nashville staple, 12 South Taproom and GrillAfter serving the 12 South neighborhood since 2006, Nashville natives, Jamy Borda and Will Shuff searched for the perfect location for a new taproom and finally found it in The Nations. We enjoy the energy of the growing neighborhood and appreciate the walkability and proximity of other great restaurants, bars, coffee shops and retail shops—including our neighboring gift store Hostus House—that will continue to make the Nations a must-visit destination for both locals and visitors alike.  

51 North Taproom is a craft beer focused bar and restaurant with 30 constantly rotating taps and 75 bottles/cans of craft beers and ciders from near and far that can appease or challenge the most discerning of palates. In addition to beer, we offer wine options and a carefully curated cocktail menu featuring high-quality, fresh ingredients crafted with love by our bartenders.  A variety of fine liquors offers the opportunity to fashion your favorite classic cocktails as well.  

We love food and the feeling of joy that joining our friends and family around the dinner table brings. At 51 North Taproom, we use the freshest ingredients in our house made recipes and have created a menu focused on some of our favorite foods and cultures from around the globe. We take great pride in making items from scratch to bring you homemade taste while you relax and enjoy the time spent out having fun. 

We support local vendors whenever we can, like our delicious breads from Charpiers Bakery and our 100% grass fed beef from Gourmet Pasture Beef. We have something to satisfy everyone including the most discerning palate or dietary needs as well as children.
