About The Solarium at Historic Scottish Rite

The Solarium at Historic Scottish Rite, one of Metro Atlanta’s more unique event facilities, is housed in one of the community’s finest architectural gems.

Designed in 1919 by Neel Reid, one of Atlanta’s most renowned architects, the building housed the original Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital, operational until the mid 1970’s. Vacant for almost three decades, this historic structure is now a mixed-use facility with over 3,000 square feet of space for special events and community gatherings, thanks to the efforts of the community and the City of Decatur. The Solarium is operated by the Community Center of South Decatur, a non-profit organization which spearheaded efforts to preserve the historic building.

On the National Register of Historic Places, The Solarium’s white stucco exterior, red Spanish tile roof, and copper pipes have been carefully restored to their original beauty. Banks of windows line the entire front of the building, and clerestory windows grace the two main rooms, allowing natural light to flood into the space. The interior has been refurbished with oak hardwood floors, beautifully detailed paint-work, and period-style lighting fixtures.

The Solarium can accommodate up to 200 guests for standing events, up to 150 for buffet-style events, and up to 170 guests for seated meals. A beautiful (and affordable) setting for a wedding and/or reception, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, corporate dinner or party, special birthday or holiday party, book The Solarium at Historic Scottish Rite for your next event!
