Just today, Painted Hospitality has officially announced the location for their newest, “one-of-a-kind” entertainment concept Painted Pickle. The 32,500 square-foot pickleball facility is described as an industrial indoor/outdoor warehouse featuring a full-service kitchen and bar. The venue will open at 279 Ottley Drive at Amour Yards in Q4 2022.
“Painted Pickle will be a high end hybrid concept combining pickleball (one of the fastest growing recreational sports in the country that combines elements of table tennis, tennis, and badminton) with other socially active entertainment options, games, and amenities,” Painted Hospitality President & CEO Justin Amick said in a press release. “The full service kitchen will boast a menu featuring sushi, signature charcuterie, cheese and pickle boards, salads, bowls, sandwiches, and share plates. The bar will highlight signature and classic craft cocktails, local and craft beer, and a vast offering of wines by the glass.”
8 indoor boutique pickleball courts will offer year-round access, as will expansive front and rear patios directly adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine. The press release notes that pickleball is one of the country’s fastest-growing sports. A 2019 Pickleball Participant Report by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association says there are more than 3.3. million players in the United States, and the sport has seen a 650 percent increase in numbers over the last six years. In fact, pickleball facilities are popping up all across the country.
Located at the purposed future intersection of the BeltLine’s Buckhead Northeast and Northwest trails, Painted Pickle will find itself in the company of neighbors like East Pole Coffee, Fox Bros BBQ, The Atlanta Track Club, Indie Studios, Coyote Logistics, Atlanta Spirit Works, The Stave Room, and Sweetwater Brewing Company.
Painted Hospitality is behind other Atlanta-area entertainment-driven concepts like The Painted Pin, an upscale boutique bar and bowling venue, as well as The Painted Duck, a “distinguished drinkery”, duckpin bowling alley, and gaming parlor.
