After 38 years in business, The Georgian Club has shuttered its doors. Former U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson made the announcement in a letter posted to the club's website.

“There are numerous factors that have gone into this decision, but in the end, the impact from the coronavirus, both now and in the future, necessitates the permanent closing of the club,” wrote Isakson, the club’s chairman, in an April 28 letter to members.

Formed in 1982, The Georgian Club was Atlanta’s first suburban city club and was comprised of roughly 30 community and business leaders.

Isakson said the management team is looking to find other opportunities for employees, many who had worked there for more than 20 years and some 30 years.

“Saying goodbye to them is not going to be easy,” he said. The club is also in talks with the landlord, Childress Klein and building manager, Piedmont Realty Trust. “We will continue to work with them to ensure a smooth transition at the property.”
