Hattie B’s Hot Chicken Opening Second Atlanta Restaurant, This Time In West Midtown

News of the new location arrives on the one-year anniversary of eatery's entry into the market.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, a family-owned-and-operated Nashville-based eatery, is opening a second Atlanta location, according to a press release Thursday.

It will be situated in a standalone storefront, at 711 10th Street, NW, owned by Kim King Associates.

The West Midtown Hattie B’s is expected to open in spring 2020.

News of the new location arrives on the one-year anniversary of Hattie B’s entry into the Atlanta market with an outpost at 299 Moreland Ave. (opened July, 2018.)

“It’s a good spot in a bustling part of town,” Nick Bishop Jr., co-founder of Hattie B’s alongside his father Nick Bishop Sr., said in the release.

“When we were looking for our first Atlanta location, we were looking in this area back then. It’s a part of town we’ve always had our eye on.”

The West Midtown location will be the largest Hattie B’s Hot Chicken restaurant with about 4,800 square feet and will seat 200 guests, inside and outside.

Unlike the Little Five Points location, originally a prototype of a 1950s Phillips 66 gas station, the West Midtown building does not have historical features, but the “structure and lot were immediately appealing,” according to the release.

“The part I fell in love with was the front of the building” Nick Jr. said.

“It has this protected feel to it with several beautiful mature trees, and it’s slightly elevated. It was easy for all of us to envision a recessed patio there, providing a little getaway in the middle of the high rises being built in West Midtown.”

Hattie B’s West Midtown will be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 12 a.m., Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
