LADYBIRD MESS HALL & MUSIC GROVE was an exciting project for Chandlee Construction Company. It is part of the BeltLine Atlanta revitalization project. Owner, Michael Lennox, chose this former cotton mill consisting of several rental lofts to be converted into a beautiful eco-design. Seth Chandlee, CEO of Chandlee Holdings and Founding Partner of Chandlee Construction, and the Chandlee crew were responsible for the evolution of this very old brick building into a light-filled restaurant and bar with inside and outside areas for dining, drinking, music and games. Joshua Charles was the architect/designer who initialized the project with Michael Lennox.
This wonderfully eclectic restaurant and bar is located at 684 John Wesley Dobbs Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward district on the Eastside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine. This area is a very active part of the beltline with walking and cycling events, and activities of art and music. (More details are available at www.beltline.org.)
