Glen Burnie, MD – La Fontaine Bleue in Glen Burnie, Md., announced today that negotiations are being finalized with a local ownership group to purchase the historic event venue, leading a current renaissance in entertainment venues. The new owners plan to keep the name of the landmark venue through the end of the year and continue booking events. Additionally, the exciting new brand and management will be announced in early 2020.
The ownership group, an Anne Arundel-based real estate development firm, is taking advantage of the size of the location—a 42,000-square-foot freestanding building on 3.26 acres and a 171-space parking lot—to expand it as a full-service entertainment center. The renovated space will continue to host weddings, special events, and corporate meetings in the existing banquet rooms and will add an exciting new sports bar and high-energy club. High-end catering will still be offered both on- and off-site. Finally, the ownership group has hired a contractor to complete the renovation, in addition to finalizing a national live events partner
“I am thrilled be working with the new management of La Fontaine Bleue to bring a world-class entertainment and events venue into our space,” says Laurie Atkinson, Vice President for La Fontaine Bleue Lanham, Md. “The new ownership has many great plans to revitalize and rebrand our historic space and elevate the services of our center.”
