Savanna Hall

The destination


Atlanta’s newest event destination merges the majesty of the African savanna and its iconic wildlife with the storied elegance of one of the city’s most treasured historic buildings. Just moments from Downtown, this Atlanta event space is the newest addition to Zoo Atlanta and is in the heart of Grant Park, Atlanta’s oldest parkland and one of the metro area’s most popular and progressive communities.

  • Built in 1921 and revitalized by Zoo Atlanta for its new life today, Savanna Hall was the home of the Atlanta Cyclorama for more than 90 years. The building is famous for its grand scale and neoclassical architecture.
  • Reimagined as a magnificent gathering place featuring more than 25,000 square feet of event spaces, Savanna Hall still retains many notes of its past, including its famed historic façade; delicately restored, original interior terra cotta brick walls; and restored original light fixtures on its front terraces.
  • Savanna Hall is suited to functions of all shapes, sizes, occasions and moods, including corporate events, galas, weddings, rehearsal dinners, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, meetings, holiday parties and much more.
