Halcyon over the next two months with welcome six planned retailers and restaurants.
The Gibson Co., Salata Salad Kitchen, Joey, Unexpected Pooch Bistro and Boutique, and two Market Hall concepts, Holmes Slice, and CT Al Pastor, are celebrating staggered openings between June 20, 2020, and early-August, 2020.
“Thanks to the tremendous support from the Forsyth County community, Halcyon and our Market Hall continue to be a place where local entrepreneurs are growing their businesses and experimenting with creative ideas to serve guests in new ways,” Phil Mays, principal at RocaPoint Partners and developer of Halcyon, said in the release.
“Since opening last Fall, we continue to listen to feedback from our neighbors and are thrilled to see the village evolve with the delivery of more original and first-to-market concepts, which collectively create a modern, outdoor-centric gathering place unlike anywhere else in metro Atlanta.”
- Cumming-based home décor shop The Gibson Co. debuted its Halcyon location on Saturday, June 20, occupying a storefront across from the Village Green and Cherry Street Brewpub, next to Nina + Leigh boutique.
- Salata Salad Kitchen is bringing its first Forsyth County location to Halcyon on Thursday, June 25. The fast-casual restaurant is known for customizable bowls and wraps with the option of more than 50 ingredients and signature dressings. Located across from CMX Cinébistro and next to Unexpected Pooch, Salata will be open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
- Pilates and dance cardio studio Joey is offering private and duet Pilates sessions with limited capacity starting Monday, June 29. Group fitness classes will commence on July 13, including reformer Pilates, mat Pilates, and dance cardio classes.
- Halcyon’s CT Cantina Taqueria is expanding into Halcyon’s Market Hall with a new quick-service concept this July called CT Al Pastor. Named after the spit-grilled style of cooking pork, CT Al Pastor will serve a curated menu of Mexican-style tacos and bowls, as well as imported beers, CT’s classic margaritas on the rocks and frozen cocktails including frosé, piña coladas and more. Situated between Gu’s Dumplings and Sweet Tuna, the colorful design of the stall will be reminiscent of CT Cantina Taqueria while offering a grab-and-go option for guests on the Village Green.
- Holmes Slice, a chef-driven pizza concept coming to the Market Hall from Taylor Neary, the owner and head chef of Restaurant Holmes, is opening in July. Holmes Slice pulls inspiration from the old-fashioned pizza parlors found in New York and Naples, Italy. Each pizza is handcrafted with made-from-scratch dough and locally sourced produce in a custom-made, wood-burning oven, all on display for guests to view through a window to the kitchen. The food stall is located to the right of Gu’s Dumplings.
- Hosting a grand opening on August 8, Unexpected Pooch from Owner Starla Pellegrino and first created in 2018, is a pet boutique and French bistro, complete with black-and-white tile and outdoor seating. Store hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday by appointment only.
