DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

A new VIP hot spot with the best food, dancing and atmosphere will not open on Beale Street.

It will be right next to Beale Street. Inside the FedExForm.

Say hello to the Fly Lounge, the first club of its kind.

To know what's going on in Fly Lounge you'll have to be inside.

"We're trying to create an actual destination place within the FedExForum, a place people can go early on for dining, be here during the game, and of course after the game stay as late as they want," said Steve Adelman of Fly Lounge.

Though it's still under construction Adelman promises Fly Lounge will be open this week. The lounge is the first of its kind exclusive, VIP-oriented lounge inside the FedExForum.

VIPs will get special cards for express entry and advanced reservations. Everyone else will have to pay a cover to get in, likely around $10.

"A lot of people want an exclusive atmosphere before and after," Adelman said. "I think the way we designed the room with VIP areas we'll be able to provide that to them."

Adelman is partnering with Chef Kelly English, who will be designing a pre- and post-game dining menu.

"Then after late night dining it turns into more of a club atmosphere where the music picks up," Adelman said. "We've got a DJ booth and the whole thing."

Grizzlies fan Marcus Grandberry said the lounge will be a great addition to the game experience.

"Going to a Grizzlies game is more of an experience," Grandberry said. "You have the Lexus Lounge, you see friends.  But you go to the game for the total experience."

That's the idea for the Grizzlies. The organization wants the fans to make an entire evening out of coming to The Forum.

"Fly Lounge is an opportunity to get people here before hand and really keep them here afterwards," said Jason Wexler, Grizzlies COO. "It's going to be unique for the city."

Fly Lounge will be open for all Grizzlies and University of Memphis Tigers basketball games, and concerts.

As for the hours, Adelman said "as late as they want to stay."
