The Cam and CJ Newton-owned and backed Fellaship, ( an exclusive restaurant and cigar establishment located in the historic Castleberry Hill neighborhood announced its grand opening festivities and lineup beginning this Friday evening. Events will continue through Saturday night and conclude Sunday with a viewing party hosted by Cam and other high-profile celebrities in town for Big Game festivities.

The name “Fellaship” was developed by Cam and his family to reflect the many Sunday afternoons the Newton’s spent fellowshipping together, as well as a place for friends and family to gather and enjoy a good cigar, delicious cuisine and of course, good fellowship.

“This is a dream come true for me, my brother CJ, my dad Cecil and others in my extended family,” said Newton. “To be able to come back to Atlanta to such a thriving business environment and start a business is just one way that I want to start giving back to my hometown that gave me my start and has been so good to me and my family. I’d like to thank the City of Atlanta, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and others for helping this dream become a reality.”

Newton organized a group of all-stars to design and build Fellaship, including the world-acclaimed (and fellow Auburn alums) Meyer-Davis Architects and Gary Nix of Nix-Unger Construction, whose father coached baseball at Auburn.

Adding to the all-star roster of alums on the project, MELT Chairman/Founder/CEO ( Vince Thompson, Auburn University Class of ’84, is joining forces with Newton to co-produce the events for the weekend alongside Tony Conway’s Legendary Events.

“Working with Cam and CJ has been a dream come true,” said MELT Chairman/CEO and fellow Auburn alum Vince Thompson. “We look forward to having a great weekend of fun and activities with everyone who’s in town for the Big Game!”

Once opening weekend festivities are concluded, Fellaship will become the ultimate cigar lounge and restaurant destination for pre-game, post-game and other exclusive opportunities throughout the year for guests in the downtown area.
