The Melting Point is the Foundry Park Inn & Spa’s music venue, pub and restaurant.  Playing host to a variety of acts most nights of the week, The Melting Point has been dubbed Athens most intimate music venue.    

This space has a great mix of Athens history as it was used as the original ‘melting point’ when The Foundry Park Inn was once a true Foundry where blacksmiths crafted fine works such as the UGA Arch and the Double-Barreled Cannon. Exposed bricks and original masonry from the 1850’s survive to this day.

Couples enjoy the best of both worlds – they have both a soaring indoor space, with the option to open large glass doors onto the outdoor terrace.

Guests never miss a moment and despite its size the venue is more intimate. The variety of levels allows everyone to be part of the action – from the first dances to the bouquet toss.

Since the Melting Point is first and foremost a music venue, bands (and Dj’s!) have all they need to keep guests entertained.  The venue comes equipped with all sound equipment including a highly skilled sound technician.  What’s even better – all catering, planning and service is offered by The Foundry Park Inn.  We can even help you to book your band!

The space is great for parties both large and small.  Hosting events from 50-350, The Melting point is seemingly the perfect space for a variety of couples who wish to throw a true Athens, Georgia Wedding.
