Yacht Rock Revue Crew Opening New Atlanta Restaurant & Venue

The two fronting members of cheesy ‘70s/’80s cover band Yacht Rock Revue are part of the team behind a new restaurant and music venue called Venkman’s opening in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood in mid-September.

Nicholas Niespodziani (right) and Peter Olson (left), who also head booking & promotion company PleaseRock, are teaming with chef Nick Melvin (center) of Doux South Pickles on the venture, housed in a former soda factory at 740 Ralph McGill Boulevard.

Venkman’s, which may or may not be named in homage to Bill Murray’s character in Ghostbusters, will be open seven nights a week, with a wide assortment of live music including local and nationally touring acts, along with DJ sets from Niespodziani and Olson on Tuesdays during opening month (and, one assumes, whenever their busy schedules allow for it in the future).
