Zoo Atlanta Tickets Will Let You See This White House-Style Party Spot

As one of the oldest and most popular attractions in the entire city, Zoo Atlanta has always been an Atlanta staple. The animal haven, which is already massive, continues to grow with all new exhibits and interactive experiences. The newest addition is a gorgeous, massive White House-style event space, so next time you grab some Zoo Atlanta tickets, you may want to check this out.

The all-new glorious Savanna Hall at Zoo Atlanta, which opened for business on February 5, is part of the organization's renovation project, Grand New View.

The first phase brought the incredible, hyper-realistic African Savanna habitat and now it's introducing this awe-inspiring event hall.

According to a Zoo Atlanta press release, the entire transformation costs roughly $55 million, representing the most ambitious reimagining in Zoo Atlanta history.

If you're an avid animal lover and want to feel like royalty at your next celebration, this is definitely the place for you. Whether it's a wedding, a bachelorette party or a birthday bash, this elaborate mansion has everything you need to please your guests in ways you'd never imagine.

The concept, which is comparable to the the actual White House, is an elegant revamp of the space that once housed the iconic Cyclorama painting, The Battle of Atlanta.

Although the 25,000-square-foot expansion is new and improved, the zoo has held onto historical elements of the 1921 neoclassical building, including the original facade and terra cotta walls. Originally only two stories, the venue now has four floors with event and administrative space.

One of the most awe-inspiring features is the Michael & Thalia Carlos Ballroom, a two-level grand ballroom with both a covered terrace and an open-air terrace, offering panoramic views of the African Savanna. 

The immersive party house also has The Savanna Vista that sits in the center of the actual African Savanna and the Delta Savanna Terrace with views of Grant Park.

No matter where you look, you'll blown away by amazing observatories of both wild creatures and awe-inspiring architecture.
