A Greenville private business and social club founded nearly 40 years ago is undergoing $1.75 million in renovations and rebranding.
Dallas-based BNG Hospitality, the owners of the Greenville Commerce Club on the 17th floor of the One Liberty Square building in downtown Greenville at 55 Beattie Place, said they will create a “brand new club.”
The exclusive yet inclusive club was formed and continues to operate so that members are in a comfortable setting that facilitates interaction and camaraderie while providing fine dining and personalized service.
The club currently features 360-degree panoramic views of Greenville, personalized dining and service experiences to include breakfast, lunch and dinner, coffee concierge service, an active array of monthly member activities and events, shared and individual workspaces, venues for weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversaries, business meetings, conferences and more, and protected self-parking.
BNG also operates clubs in Charleston, Tampa, Fla.; San Antonio, Texas; and Costa Mesa, Calif. Jim Coyne, founding partner and executive vice president of operations, said Greenville Commerce Club members also have access to several business clubs and social clubs around the nation.
BNG acquired the club a few years ago, and Coyne said they fell in love with the Greenville market.
“Greenville is such an up-and-coming city,” said Coyne. “It’s been a while since the club had anything done to it, and we wanted to update it to be more modern and relevant, to clean up the wear and tear of it over the years. We will be giving homage to Greenville’s past, present and future through the renovations.”
Coyne said they expect to start renovations in July with the hopes of opening it back up to members in the fall.
Although they are still working out the final details with designers and architects, DP3 Architects, Coyne said “every space in the club will be touched.”
Details of the renovations should be finalized within the next two-to-three weeks, he said.
