Improv comedy club finds new home in Tower Walk Buckhead

The Atlanta Improv comedy club has found a new home in Tower Walk Buckhead, less than a mile away (as the crow flies) from its former location at the East Andrews Entertainment District in the West Village.Improv club logo

At the end of 2015, landlord Edens shut down the original Improv along with several bars and restaurants in the East Andrews Entertainment District. Stephen de Haan, who ran East Andrews, found the slightly larger space at Tower Walk Buckhead.

The club will seat 350, up from about 300 in the old space. Tower Walk, off Piedmont Road, is home to RuSan’s Sushi, Twin Peaks sports pub, Farm Burger and AMC Dine In Theatres. The new Improv will be upstairs from the theater.

De Haan had said he was seeking space that was near major hotels and highways. This particular locale is in walking distance of several major hotels such as the InterContinental and the Grand Hyatt. “I’m excited by the accessibility to (Ga.) 400,” he said, “and parking is improved.”

He plans a more comfortable seating layout with better sight lines, elevated areas and banquettes. He also wants better acoustics. “We are investing heavily in the audio,” he said.

Given the build-out schedule, de Haan hopes to have the Improv open in the winter of 2017.

      I hope they put some outdoor seating up there. That big space walking through there seems way too empty. Perhaps it will look better when the spaces become occupied though. Either way – cool location with a cool view.

      I guess it wouldn’t really make sense for a comedy club to have outdoor seating though. Unless they serve food as well.
