The Fox Theatre has announced that the new Marquee Club will have its opening on Thursday, May 17 with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting for inaugural members. The $10 million expansion includes the northwest corner of the building and part of the rooftop, which hasn’t been open to the public in 50 years.
The Marquee Club will feature 10,000 square feet of event space, including food service and five bars. Members will enjoy the Club’s multi-level interior and climate-controlled rooftop terrace overlooking Peachtree Street.
“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., in a press statement. “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.”
Individual, Corporate or Broadway Across America membership tiers offer year-round access to the Marquee Club, in association with ticketed events at the Fox Theatre. A recent addition, members also will receive a number of club access passes for ticketed guests, as well as an allowance for membership transfers. Non-members may access the Marquee Club starting with the Saturday, May 19 show “Live From Here with Chris Thile.” Staring April 16, Fox Theatre ticketed guests may purchase Marquee Club access passes for select events. Marquee Club access passes are limited and may be purchased on a first come, first serve basis on designated shows via the Fox Theatre website.
Guests may enter the club before and after events, as well as during intermission. Additional amenities will include priority pre-sale ticketing notifications, private restrooms, dedicated lobby elevator, concierge guest services and for select memberships, self-parking access to an adjacent lot.
