Poke Bar Secures Inman Park Lease, One of 12 Atlanta Locations Coming Soon

A 'wave' of Poke Bar restaurants will open end of September, early October.

A ‘wave’ of Poke Bar restaurants will open end of September, early October.

California-based Poke Bar this month inked a deal in Inman Park, possibly the company’s last Atlanta-area location.

The Hawaiian-style eatery, at 870 Inman Village Parkway, will be situated in a 1,700-square-foot space sandwiched between Amara Restaurant and Bar and In Focus Eye Center.

Daniel Kim, franchise controller for the Georgia market, in an email Friday confirmed the news with What Now Atlanta.

The restaurant could open late November, early December “depending on the process with the city and county,” Kim said.

The Inman Park Poke Bar was the company’s fifteenth Atlanta lease, the magic number before reaching “market saturation.”

A “wave” of Poke Bars will open end of September, early October in Alpharetta, Buckhead, Duluth, Midtown, Peachtree Corners, Perimeter, Swanee, and Vinings.

Kim would not confirm the exact locations of those outposts.

“There is a lot of analysis that goes into” picking locations, Kim said.

“It’s not a gut feeling.”

Poke bar Monday will open in New Zealand, the company’s first international location.

In the Atlanta-area, the company has existing locations in Edgewood, Johns Creek, and Sandy Springs.
