Across a five-month span, Osman Sak went from crowdsourcing suggestions for a retail space between Georgia Tech and Cheshire Bridge, to landing and leasing a 1960s standalone for what will be The Goat Club nightclub and lounge.
Permitting for the project, seeking to convert a former retail space, at 2200 Cheshire Bridge, into The Goat Club, is now underway.
Key construction to the 6,494-square-foot space includes a new front door and the addition of a bar and is expected to cost $125,000.
Barring any permitting issues, contractors working on the re-fit shared with What Now Atlanta over the phone and email said they expect an end-of-January 2020 permit issuance.
Once the permit is issued, construction can begin, and tracking toward an early-summer 2020 completion is likely.
Sak has previously been affiliated with Blue Buckhead Hookah Lounge and DS17 Lounge, a concept by former Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Shroeder, that closed in 2016.
