The facial bar Clean Your Dirty Face, grill-it-yourself restaurant Iron Age Korean Steak House, and pet-centric retailer Unexpected Pooch Bistro & Boutique, are all slated to open summer 2020.

The Chicago-based Clean Your Dirty Face brand’s first foray into Georgia will carry its full collection of non-toxic skincare products.

Located behind Halcyon’s Market Hall and adjacent to Diesel Barbershop, the 760-square-foot franchise location is locally owned by Niketa Gandhi, an Alpharetta resident.

The Clean Your Dirty Face team is comprised of licensed estheticians who offer 30-minute treatments and facials. “I’ve been waiting for the right place and time to introduce Clean Your Dirty Face’s unique facial bar experience to metro Atlanta, and Halcyon is that place,” said Gandhi, who anticipates an early-summer 2020 opening.

“While the name and signature colorful storefronts turn heads and draw people in, our chic and easy facials will keep them coming back.”

Since opening in 2008 as an all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue restaurant, the Duluth-based Iron Age has expanded with locations in Sandy Springs, Kennesaw, and Toco Hills, as well as Maryland, Virginia and Thailand.

Using tabletop grills, guests are guided by staff to cook strips of pork belly, beef bulgogi and much more.

The 3,800-square-foot Halcyon outpost will be located adjacent to Popbar and feature 30 grills.

Another locally owned concept, Unexpected Pooch Bistro & Boutique, was created by Starla Pellegrino in 2018.

Unexpected Pooch offers healthy food and treats for pets as well as pet accessories sourced from all over the globe. 

Located across from CMX CinéBistro and next to Salata Salad Kitchen, the 600-square-foot Halcyon shop will resemble a French bistro, complete with black-and-white tile and outdoor seating.

Since Halcyon’s debut in Fall 2019, a total of 25 restaurants and retailers have opened at the mixed-use village. Land of A Thousand Hills, Never Enough Thyme, Salata Salad Kitchen, Holmes Slice, Frenchie’s Royal House of Frites and Meats, HOBNOB Tavern and Cattle Shed Wine & Steak Bar are coming soon, as well as Pharaoh Nails & Spa and new fitness concept, Joey.
