The Melting Point was designed to honor the Foundry's roots, where blacksmiths crafted fine works such as the UGA Arch and the Double-Barreled Cannon. The Melting Point's atmosphere reflects this attention to detail and dedication to craft- now artisans perform their craft on stage.Exposed bricks and original masonry from the 1850's survive to this day. Our owners wanted to preserve this piece of Athens history and let it live on to inspire new artists. The multi-tiered structure offers a myriad of seating options fine tuned to meet the needs of each show. Soaring twenty-two foot high beams in the ceiling, play off the new garage doors along the mezzanine that invite the outside in. Music fans are never more than 53 feet from the stage with clear views and ideal acoustics.
