Governors Club to start construction on outdoor patio

Praise the lord and pass the Macanudos: The building of the long-delayed outdoor patio in front of the Governors Club starts today (Monday).

Allison Ager, the club’s membership and marketing director, says the new “front porch” should be ready in about a month, under the iconic magnolia tree on the corner of Adams Street and College Avenue.

“The pavers being used are an environmentally friendly product that will allow water to flow straight through to the ground so the tree can thrive,” Ager says.

The project had been hung up in permitting with the city of Tallahassee for years.

All this means cigar aficionados will soon be able to puff with abandon during the day: Smoking is prohibited in the club, except on the second-floor balcony and in the lounge after 7 p.m.
