A Closer Look at The Epicurean Theatre

Apr 12, 2021

The residents of 40 West 12th boast an exclusive connectivity to the generous offerings of the Epicurean Atlanta; The Epicurean Theater is described as the ‘pinnacle of the hotel’s amenities,’ according to general manager Marc Bauer. 

Inspired by the culinary legacy and teachings of Epicurus and the genius of Bern Laxer, founder of Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, Florida, The Epicurean Theater is a means of connection for the local community of Atlanta and the Epicurean’s long and tasteful history. 

Designed to be utilized by overnight guests, visitors, and 40 West 12th owners alike, The Epicurean Theatre will present both educational and entertaining forums that foster open communication of cultural trends, cooking techniques, to the art of mixology, wine-tasting, and more. Attendees will experience immersive demonstrations, tastings, and pairings that are led by notable local and regional chefs and beverage professionals.

All theater programming will be championed by Chef Wardhaugh, and the team at Epicurean Atlanta has enlisted local Atlanta experiential agency Southern Culinary & Creative to develop supplementary events and classes that are both unique and exciting. 

Southern Culinary & Creative has over 50 years of collective knowledge that awards them the expertise in creating and executing memorable experiences. Combined through the efforts and expertise of Elizabeth Feichter, Kelly Campbell and Rebecca Lemelin Gann, the masterminds behind the legacy of the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival and other culinary and cultural experiences throughout the Southeast, The Epicurean Theater will be nothing short of excellence.

“We’re exploring meaningful and thoughtful themes as we are planning out the events calendar at Epicurean Atlanta and cannot wait to reveal what’s in store later this summer,” says Southern Culinary & Creative Partner Elizabeth Feichter. “Both hotel guests and local residents will be able to do it all with top-of-the-line technology at their fingertips – it’s going to make for a fantastic experience.” 

This thoughtfully designed, 1,964 square foot space will be fully equipped with a state-of-the-art kitchen that is beautifully complimented by Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, the very same found in every 40 West 12th home.
