The Amarillo Club recently began its $1 Million renovations, remodeling and updating the main dining area of the 31st floor in the FirstBank Southwest Tower. The renovation, which began Tuesday, is expected to be completed by Labor Day.

Members of the club will be able to eat, drink and socialize on the 30th floor until the renovations are complete. After Project31 is finished, the 30th floor will also be renovated.
