The Blue Room in Statesboro officially opened its doors August 16. A music venue that hosts live concerts and DJs, the nightclub entertains Georgia Southern students in a friendly and exciting environment.

“I’ve tried my best to build a music scene in Statesboro,” said William Bridwell, entertainment director at the Blue Room. “We’re all about giving back to the community in some way, shape or form. I had a vision for this place, and we’ve all come together as a collective to just try and make this as special as it can be.”

Bridwell started Air Bound Entertainment, another entertainment spot in Statesboro, in 2013.

Parker Newhart, general manager of the Blue Room and a recent Georgia Southern graduate, said that he “wants to give people something to be excited about.”

“We want them to really enjoy life and enjoy their time on the weekends,” he said.

The Blue Room is located on 1830 Chandler Road and opens at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
