About this Vendor

Historic Grand Ballroom in Downtown Athens!

Constructed in 1908, historic Georgian Hall has a rich history as a prominent special events venue. The grand ballroom served as the “social focal point” for Athens and surrounding areas for much of the 20th century. In early 2016, it underwent major renovation in an attempt to restore it to its original glory. This 4,000 sqft space is excellent for larger professional or personal private events such as weddings, rehearsal dinners, business meetings, sorority/fraternity formals, or simply a gathering of friends. The Grand Ballroom and Lounge comfortably seats 180 guests, but can hold up to 250 for more social events and cocktail receptions or parties.

We couldn't be happier with our wedding reception at the Georgian. Located in Downtown Athens, the Georgian is proximal to everything and gave our family and friends a true Athens experience. The historic charm was the perfect compliment to our art deco inspired wedding. Lindsey...

We could not have been happier with our wedding reception at the Georgian Hall last June. From the beginning, Lindsey was extremely helpful and willing to answer any little question I had. I also feel like she totally understood what I was looking for, and went above and beyond... Read More to think of every detail while working with my wedding coordinator as well. To chose our menu, we were invited in for a tasting (which was wonderful) and we were even able to taste the wine choices for our bar. Many of our guests mentioned afterwards how wonderful and attentive the staff was during our reception, and we could not agree more. Plus, the restoration they have recently done to the place is amazing...those wooden doors! We would highly recommend the Georgian Hall for a classic and timeless downtown Athens wedding venue.

Not only is the venue completely classic, but the A+ staff that supports you makes this place stand out above the rest.
