Atlanta Entrepreneurs Lee Bradshaw and Jon Johnson next week will open Oodazu in Buckhead.
The “totally modern and fresh LA-inspired haven for kids” will debut June 3, at 800 Miami Circle NE.
Oodazu touts itself as a “multi-activity and party venue for kids unlike any we have in Atlanta,” according to a press release Thursday.
“When we first started visiting LA, we stumbled upon so many great spots for children that we didn’t have [in Atlanta] that we saw our kids gravitated towards time and time again,” Bradshaw said in the release.
“So, we decided to bring together some of the best features of our LA favorites along with activities and brands I knew Atlanta mothers were craving for their kids such as easily accessible and expertly-taught kids’ yoga, well-executed birthday parties and unique labels.”
Oodazu will offer a full yoga program led by Elysse Killin (offered three times a day), gaga ball, the “swurfer” swing, scaling towers, climbing walls, a donut slide, virtual reality stations and more.
The space also houses a retail area featuring kids apparel and accessories from brands like Sol Angeles, Tiny Whales, Chaser and K-DEER.
A parent’s lounge will give adults access to a live feed of the yoga room, laptop stations, TVs, and a food bar with an array of drinks and snacks.
Oodazu also has two private “celebration areas” for parties and offers decorations available as both a la carte and theme package options.
Guests have the option of purchasing unlimited membership packages or paying per drop-in visit.
The exterior of oodazu will be minimalist and white with a sunset-inspired logo and California horsetail reed aligning the pathway.
Inside, stripe/wave artwork will run along the white walls.
The company’s credo is “We have fun and play hard, but know how to find our chill; we stay present, but work for a better future; we jump high, but stay grounded. We are spirited and unabashedly ourselves. We believe in joy over perfection and that kindness is always rad.”
Its tagline is “play. jump. stretch. throw. zip. climb. slide. om. swing. celebrate. shop.snack.”
Bradshaw and Johnson founded and operated Dog Days Atlanta until selling all locations last winter after a 17-year run.
