RocaPoint Partners Tuesday announced the addition of Eclipse di Luna Restaurant and Tapas Bar to its Halcyon development. With locations in Dunwoody and Buckhead, the third installment of Spanish tapas and salsa dancing hotspot is slated to open at the mixed-use development in April 2022.
At Halcyon, Eclipse di Luna will offer its well-known menu favorites such as paella, empanadas, patatas bravas, pitchers of sangria, traditional flan, and a daily fresh catch special of Spanish-style fish with a spicy chili rub, all in a “more modern, upscale environment.” Located next to HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern overlooking the Halcyon Trailhead for the Big Creek Greenway, the 5,015 square-foot restaurant will feature a pergola and outdoor patio space for year-round use.
“For decades, Eclipse di Luna has been known across Atlanta for its fun-loving environment, late nights and authentic cuisine, and we see Halcyon as a premier destination with the consistency and demographics we are looking for,” Eric Kline, principal and managing partner for Eclipse di Luna and Loca Luna restaurants, said in a prepared statement. “Our guests are eager to get back to gathering for celebrations, and after an extensive search across metro Atlanta, our team is certain there is no better place than Halcyon to add the next iteration of Eclipse di Luna.”
Founded in 1997 by Chef Paul Luna and Partner James Ehrlich, Eclipse di Luna offers live Latin music and salsa dancing, making it a destination for date night, ladies night out, or weekend brunch.
“Eclipse di Luna is an Atlanta favorite with a great reputation, and Halcyon’s goal is to be a place where people can come together and feel part of the local community,” Phil Mays, principal at RocaPoint Partners, said. “With their lively environment, and a need for tapas, music and dancing in the area, Eclipse di Luna makes for a perfect addition to the property.”
With the addition of Eclipse di Luna, Halcyon’s roster of independent businesses and first-to-market national retailers, restaurants and service providers span more than 35 concepts. In 2021 alone, Halcyon welcomed Derbyshire Mens, Board & Brush Creative Studio, Iron Age Korean Steakhouse and Cattle Shed Wine & Steak Bar. Morgan Stanley also recently selected Halcyon for its new trading platform hub, bringing 500 jobs. In a tri-party agreement with WeWork, the investment bank and financial services company has occupied WeWork’s 57,921-square-foot space beginning in October 2021.
Early next year BBQGuys will expand into Georgia with a new office, outdoor living design center and media production facility in the second phase of office space at Halcyon. Construction is now underway on the second phase of development, which will include a 60,000-square-foot office building and a 23,000 square-foot fitness center.
