Nathaniel Beaver grew up in Nashville, Tenn. A strong work ethic was at the foundation of his youth, watching his mother work as a nurse administrator in women's health and  his father, a special education metro school teacher. Beaver began his own job path at the age of 12 and was managing at the famed Fox's Donut Den by the age of 16. A diploma from Montgomery Bell Academy in 1999 set the tone for his educational future, and he went on to receive his bachelor's degree in Legal Studies from the University of Tennessee in 2003. Beaver continued his education and received two Masters degrees in Education and Paralegal Studies, all the while working as general manager of multiple restaurants.

In 2006, Beaver became owner of Whitfield's Restaurant and Bar and in 2009 he opened Bria Bistro Italiano. Tabor Luckey joined forces with him, becoming partner and the executive chef of both Whitfield's Restaurant and Bar and Bria Bistro in August of 2010. With their combined 40 years in the restaurant industry, the two started The Harding House Restaurant at Belle Meade Plantation in May of 2011. This allowed Luckey the opportunity to highlight his catering passion and Beaver the opportunity to further his business minded outlook on the industry with the launch of Infinity Events & Catering under the Parent Corporation, Infinity Restaurant Group. Whitfield's was sold in January of 2012 to their long time business partner in order to pursue other exciting opportunities.

In August of 2012, the two opened up the company's flagship project at the historic Bridge Building in downtown Nashville. The Bridge Building Event Spaces has become one of the most popular event venues in town and is consistently voted by the Nashville Scene as having the "Best New View of Nashville." In 2014, The Bell Tower opened as one of the largest, historical event spaces in all of Tennessee. A state of the art renovation of a 140-year-old church has created an event space like no other.

Beaver and Luckey take pride in the company they started. Comprising of over 100 staff members, two restaurants, an events and catering company, and six event venues, their vision does not stop there, as multiple new projects are currently in development in the Nashville area.
