Terri J. Vaughn and Rashan Ali hosted a private opening soiree for Vaughn’s newest concept lounge – The Green Room Actors Lounge last week in Atlanta. Inspired by the Samuel French theater and film bookshop in L.A., the Green Room Lounge’s atmosphere pays homage to vintage Hollywood, while offering up light bites, an actor’s bookstore, and a performance area.
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed was on hand for the opening event to make a special presentation to the ownership team and guests were treated to impromptu jam sessions lead by host band Quinn and the Jukebox along with live performances by national recording artist: Angie Stone, Anthony David, Alexa Lieberman, Nicci Gilbert (formerly of Brownstone) and Soul for Real. This event also benefitted two nonprofit organizations: Take Wings Foundation & Colored My Mind.
The Green Room is the creative vision of actress, producer and owner Terri J. Vaughn and is co-owned by Business Manager and Attorney Shannon K. Nash, Film Producer Roger Bobb (BobbCat Films) and retired NBA Player, Adonal Foyle. An actor’s haven, The Green Room Lounge will serve as a specialty theatrical bookstore and performance space .
Celebrity guests included: Mel Jackson, Jasmine Guy, Lamman Rucker, Rodney Perry (The Mo’Nique Show), Demetria McKinney (Meet the Browns), Chef G. Garvin, Lisa Arrindell Anderson (Madea’s Family Reunion), Clifton Powell, Soul for Real, Derek J, Lisa Wu Hartwell, Chef Jason Ellis (Hell’s Kitchen), Tommy Ford (Martin), Derek Blanks, Angie Stone, Derek Anderson and Malinda Williams.
