The announcement was made in a post on the Paris on Ponce Instagram page, and La Maison Rouge is expected to open on March 1. According to What Now Atlanta, the 9,000 square foot event space at 57 Forsyth Street will have a French boudoir and artistic theme similar to the original. The space will be available to host weddings, parties and other events.
Paris on Ponce, known for its eclectic selection of artist studios and vintage shops, has been a mainstay in Virginia-Highland for for more than 25 years. The century-old former Colgate Mattress Factory sits along the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail near Ponce City is still undetermined. A fundraiser is still ongoing to save the building at this link.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
