Since its founding in 1964, the Atlanta Press Club has had offices in prominent locations throughout the city, including CNN Center and Georgia Public Broadcasting.
In 2003, Tom Johnson, retired CEO of CNN and Commerce Club member, suggested that the Atlanta Press Club move its facilities to The Commerce Club to create a stronger alliance between the business and media communities.
For seven years the Atlanta Press Club enjoyed being on the top floor of The Commerce Club in the historic Bennett Brown Building in downtown Atlanta. In 2010 the Press Club moved into the new Commerce Club on the 49th floor of 191 Peachtree Tower in downtown Atlanta. The Atlanta Press Club relishes the comfortable, elegant and friendly atmosphere, which is very similar to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. and is a few blocks from some of the major media outlets including CNN, Atlanta Magazine, The Associated Press and Bloomberg News.
