Owner & Entrepreneur Matthew Charette

Matt Fell in love with the Restaurant and Bar industry at a very young age.  With his uncle owning Night Clubs and his Dad a Chef, Matt was exposed to the behind the scenes and inner workings of the industry all through out growing up.  One of Matt's favorite memories is going into one of his Uncles places during a bright sunny day and rememebering how dark it was inside, with all the people sitting at the bar "hanging out" and watching a Baseball game on the small TV's.  Matt was left with the "Bar Flies" (shhh - don't tell his Mom) as his Dad and Uncle went into the Back Room.  "I was always Captivated by the behind the scenes and inner working that few people ever got to see.  That Coupled with my Dad's love for providing and enjoying the "Guest Experiance" fueled a passion inside of me too."


Opening Beyond the Edge's doors in 2003, Matt has been one of the most influential business owners in the rise of the Five Points area. Today, Matt owns multiple restaurants in the area, but Beyond the Edge was his first endeavor and has remained a staple bar and grill of East Nashville since in inception. His bars and restaurants have all received various awards and he himself has been named one of 2015's East Nashvillian's Entrepreneur of the Year!
