Gold Room to fill spot vacated by Gold Club
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
More gold is coming to Buckhead next month.
It’s the Gold Room, a nightclub and lounge scheduled to open at the site that was once home to the Gold Club. The Atlanta strip bar was shut down by the feds eight years ago after its owners confessed to federal racketeering charges. Ironically, the next tenant was a church. The property became a vacant eyesore once the church moved out.
This time, the building at Piedmont and Lindbergh is being renovated by new owners Jonathan Clay and John Frasier of F&C Buckhead Inc.
The exact opening date has not been determined, but a soft launch of the Gold Room is planned for Halloween.
While the history of the building and its impact on Atlanta are undeniable, “We’re not celebrating it, but we can’t ignore it,” the new owners said in a statement released Monday.
