Atlanta’s Fox Theatre is just about ready to show off its $10 million expansion with the grand opening and ceremonial ribbon-cutting for the Marquee Club scheduled for May 17. 

The 10,000 square foot club, which is taking over the northwest corner of the building that was previously leased retail space, represents the largest one-time revitalization of the venue since its 1929 grand opening. 
The Marquee Club presented by Lexus features a multi-level interior and climate-controlled rooftop terrace, offering public access to the theatre’s roof for the first time in nearly 50 years. Bring your appetite because the Marquee boasts five stationary bars, with passed and displayed hors d’oeuvres throughout. The club also includes a dedicated lobby elevator, private restrooms, concierge guest services and self-parking access for select members. 
The club is only open during ticketed events at the Fox Theatre, with members able to enjoy the amenities pre-show and during intermission, as well as post-show on select days.

“This is a momentous day for the Fox Theatre, as we are thrilled to unveil the Marquee Club for the very first time,” said Allan C. Vella, President and CEO of Fox Theatre, Inc. “With the assistance of dedicated partners, such as Lexus and Regions Bank, we are able to introduce the Marquee Club to our patrons, who have long asked for the Fox Theatre to offer more amenities, more food and beverage offerings and a heightened ‘Fox Theatre experience.’ This is our largest revitalization effort to date and a huge undertaking for our staff, as we took great care to select a team of historic preservation experts, luxury designers and artisans to ensure the Marquee Club will stand as an equal to the Fox Theatre for decades and generations to come.”
