Renovation and expansion plans for the Lost Dog Tavern remain underway and as Owner Marshall Whidby explained, the popular nightclub will essentially take on a new identity.
“We’re going from a nightclub to a restaurant with a huge emphasis on food and will be open seven days a week,” he explained.
Originally opened in 2012, renovation work for the Lost Dog Tavern first started in 2018 but was delayed heading into 2020.
With the vision of opening in the spring or summer, Whidby decided to push the construction to next January.
“We hope to be open by May or June 2022,” he said.
Renovation work to the existing space will be extensive.
Whidby plans to incorporate a full-service restaurant and bar. It will have an outdoor patio area with a stage for live music and will be putting in a parking garage.
“We’re going to triple the size of our existing courtyard,” he said.
The existing two-level structure will be renovated with a rear porch and a new upper-level terrace along with new dining options, a bar, and restrooms, according to Liveable Buckhead.
A graduate from the University of Georgia, Whidby has always liked the Buckhead-area and hopes to draw in more diners with his new vision of Lost Dog Tavern.
