Blue Room

Blue RoomThe Georgia Railroad Freight Depot was completed in April of 1869 and is one of the oldest buildings in downtown Atlanta. The building served as the main freight depot for the Georgia Railroad, and was restored by the Georgia Building Authority in 1981 for public use. Most of the original brickwork and freight bays remain in place to give the facility a unique setting for special occasions. The Blue Room is a quaint catering and meeting facility within the Freight Depot used for mid-size gatherings. The Blue Room's hardwood floors and two fireplaces give it an antique look that creates a beautiful setting. The Blue Room seats 150 guests and can house 200 people for a standing reception. The Blue Room is often used for breakfasts, luncheons, dinners, fundraisers, meetings and receptions.
