The mall's food court will soon be 'open container' to accommodate the new beer-on-tap concept.
Lenox Square Mall will soon be home to Peachtree Pint, a beer-on-tap concept like those seen at Atlanta-area food halls.
The Buckhead mall will allow "open containers" in its Fashion Cafe food court to accommodate the new concept, according to Peachtree Pint Owner Farshad Arshid.
"Lenox Square wants a food hall-feel versus a food court," Arshid in a telephone interview Tuesday told What Now Atlanta.
"Peachtree Pint is the first step in making that a reality."
Arshid is a Lenox Square veteran of 22 years. The entrepreneur has been involved with the mall as a vendor, manager, and business owner on-and-off the past two decades.
He owns the Standard and G Star Raw in the Buckhead mall.
"Over my 22 year relationship with Simon Property group, I've always seen an evolution. They're very, very innovative."
Peachtree Pint will open in a 320-square-foot space previously occupied by Which Wich. The design of the space will be "clean with a bit of a classic look."
Think poured concrete, different types of tile, and possibly some wood accents, according to Arshid.
Peachtree Pint will offer over 30 international and domestic beers on tap and pre-packaged snacks created in partnership with local chefs.
"Georgia has some of the best craft breweries in the country right now. We want to focus on these amazing local breweries and then branch out to national and international."
But Arshid understands that craft beer isn't an "everyday thing" so some typical domestic offerings will also be available.
"We just want to provide something everyone enjoys. A nice cold beer with lunch."
Peachtree Pint is scheduled to open winter 2017.
