Buckhead Theater

Central to Buckhead nightlife for more than 80 years, The Buckhead Theatre is steeped in the lively spirit of its history, yet fully modernized to accommodate today's multifaceted forms of entertainment and special events. The restored Spanish-Baroque architecture of the original 1930s movie house jewel is a seamless historical counterpoint to the updated state-of-the-art lighting and sound system, modern catering kitchen, event space, and other amenities.
 
Beyond the theatre's 10-foot LED marquee, original Art Deco doorways lead from the lobby into the 8,000 square-foot main theatre and orchestra and loge spaces. The Buckhead Theatre's revitalized interior plan increases flexibility for a variety of performances and events, including lectures, comedy, Broadway plays, rock-and-roll acts, and private and public events.

Most unusual food request

We were asked to bake a cake for a groom that resembled a Black Labrador Retriever - and we had to make it in the house of the reception! Then, there was a squabble: the bride wanted the cake outside, and the groom wanted the cake inside. We stood holding the 40-pound cake while they decided what to do!

My work philosophy

No excuses and make sure every guest is happy!

"I think of myself as a casual, comfortable guy. I truly believe that whether you are eating dinner at a wedding reception or picnicking in the back yard, the food that is produced should wrap you up, bring back wonderful memories or create new tantalizing ones. Food should be a desire and not a function".
