The Copper Fox Music Venue

A proposal for The Copper Fox, a 13,900 square foot restaurant and 330-seat live music venue, passed Alpharetta city’s planning commission last week. The next vote is March 26th by the City Council.

Co-owners Ben Lee and Mark Ferrara, owners of Brooklyn-Cantina (an American-Mexican Broiler) and Pig & Swig (BBQ & Moonshine) are excited about this new venture.

Ferrara said:

The Copper Fox is going to be a casual place where there will be tons of TV for games, a place for families, and a place for the casual Joe. The upstairs venue will have top-notch live music tribute bands after 8:30. It will be the place to be!

According to the AJC, in plans submitted to the city by developer Bob Rothman, described The Copper Fox as a “sports restaurant” and “live music venue” that will appeal to folks between the ages of 40 and 60 years old. The music will be played on the weekends only. The AJC states that Rothman wants to rezone two buildings at 10 and 37 Roswell Street from special use to commercial for this venture.

Seth Chandlee with Chandlee and Sons, the General Contractor, says that there will 4400 sq ft on the first floor with the balance of 9,000 +\- upstairs and the main floor is going to be a bar/restaurant with indoor/outdoor bars. The second level is going to be the music venue with DJ Booth, VIP Seating, a 40′ wide x 13′ deep stage and a huge bar. He said:

Literally a HUGE Octagon Bar with each section of the octagon nearly 20′ each!

Ferrara also shared that he plans to expand to the Johns Creek City Center in Johns Creek at the border of Forsyth County at the end of 2019.

Other live music venues such as MadLife in Woodstock and 37 Main in Buford are successful in bringing in the crowds. We look forward to sharing more about The Copper Fox once approved.

A crowd from a Yacht Rock Shooner Concert; this is the type of tribute band that Ferrara will have at The Copper Fox.
