Giving a nod to its origin as an iron foundry, The Foundry is rooted in the concept of craftsmanship and attention to detail with fresh hints of Southern flare and fare bringing the space to life.

Dating back to the 1850's, The Foundry at Graduate Athens has been re-purposed, offering a multi-tiered concert hall with four additional historic venues fit to host special events, meetings and weddings.  In The Foundry, exposed brick walls and high beam ceilings tell stories of past artisans who once inhabited the space, while contemporary finishings and enhanced acoustics lend a refurbished stage to new musicians. Dishing up an original spin on Southern comforts and stocked with local brews (including one of our own-"Iron Maker" anyone?) our historic music venue is the perfect spot to gather the gang or catch a gig.
