Tongue & Groove grand re-opening tonight

The venerable Buckhead nightclub Tongue & Groove is holding a grand re-opening tonight, as noted in today's Peach Buzz. But the AJC item makes it sound as if T&G is just opening its doors. Actually, the club opened last spring in the space formerly occupied by Lotus Lounge in the Lindberg City Center complex.

As owner Michael Krohngold explains, he sold his leasehold for T&G's original location at the corner of Peachtree Road and Buckhead Avenue earlier this year, but had planned to re-open the club within the rapidly redeveloping Buckhead Village. He considered several sites in and around the planned Streets of Buckhead retail district, but ran into zoning and licensing issues, so he instead opted to take over Lotus' lease.

In the intervening six months, Krohngold and his decorator wife, Patti, completely renovated the interior, hiring graffiti artists to give the space an urban street art motif, and installing digital projectors, new furnishings and other design touches. They also opened a new room with a high-energy dance floor.

Tonight's grand re-opening kicks off at 9 p.m. and will feature breakdancers, go-go girls and aerialists.
