The “Shops At Metropolis” are mourning another loss.

Aurum Lounge, the ultra-nightclub laced in all-things gold, quietly closed its doors for good in May with a “Grand Closing Celebration” (we didn’t get an invite either.)

The nightclub housed in the street-level retail space at the Metropolis Condominiums joins several other closures in the past few years at the Midtown high rise including: Silk, Drew Lewis, Solarium, and La Tagliatella.

The condo building, at 939 Peachtree Street, is forever covered with “Pardon Our Progress” signage.

I think it’s great for the neighborhood. Area residents were a tired of the noise and vibe along 8th street in the evenings. And while it’s a shame to see upscale boutiques like Drew Lewis leave the building, new openings like Newk’s, Sweet Hut, and Orange Theory Fitness are turning it into a real neighborhood, with services the growing number of residents need.

It was not so quiet at all. They had the word out everywhere and I even emailed you to make sure you were aware. At the closing hosted by Jimmy Jones Atlanta’s own their was an announcement of what would come in its place.

Aurum (a club) should never have been located in a residential building in the first place. Aurum was a nuisance tenant, causing disturbances for the residents of the building weekly. Upon closing (usually between 2 and 3 am), the rowdy patrons created a parking lot on 8th street, fights often broke out, loud antics typically ensued – at times devolving into gunfire. Most Metropolis residents were happy to see them FINALLY close. We hope a tenant more suited to the building will replace them.

How about a nice quality men’s store, like the one’s on the Westside. No urban wear, but appealing more to the young business professionals, who live in these high rises. And a quality shoe selection also.

I am a restaurateur who is putting together a specialty grocery and farm to table concept. Would this space be compatible with a scaled down Whole Foods/Fresh Market styled presentation and vibe?

Also, who is the best person to contact for leasing info at Metropolis?

Do you know if the Aurum space in the building is still available?
