UPDATE (December 24, 2017): Knock Down Duckpins at The Painted Duck Westside Starting Dec. 27
Justin Amick and William Stallworth, founders and principals of Painted Hospitality, are moving forward with plans to open The Painted Duck in the Stockyards Atlanta mixed-use development on the Westside.
Amick and Stallworth this week filed a building permit application with City of Atlanta to build-out the 24,500-square-foot 18 lane duckpin bowling and gaming venue, at 976 Brady Ave NW.
The Painted Duck is expected to take the space from the landlord late January, early February 2017, Hannah Amick, a company spokesperson, told What Now Atlanta in an email Tuesday.
The buildout process of 90 to 120 days puts The Painted Duck’s opening sometime in May or June, a similar timeline to sister concept The Painted Pin, which opened in Miami Circle June 8, 2014, Amick said.
An estimated $750,000 could be spent building out the “distinguished drinkery, duckpin bowling and gaming parlour” located in the new Stockyards Atlanta development on the Westside at the intersection of 10th Street and Brady Avenue.
The Painted Duck would include 18 full-service duckpin bowling lanes, indoor deck shuffleboard and horseshoe pits, Belgian feather bowling, two full service private karaoke rooms and other competitive group gaming options.
The cuisine is being slated as “backyard barfare” and would center on shareable small plates and wood-fired meats prepared on a show-stopper grill. The beverage program would focus on “signature and classic cocktails,” artisanal wines by the glass, local and craft beer, and an “extensive” list of bourbons and whiskeys.
Chef Thomas Collins (TROIS, Parish, The Painted Pin) is creating the menu and mixologist Trip Sandifer (Restaurant Eugene, The Spence, The Painted Pin) will craft the cocktail program.
Co-owner and advanced sommelier Justin Amick will curate the wine and beer program and oversee day to day operations of The Painted Pin and The Painted Duck. Co-owner William Stallworth will continue to focus on driving the company wide private events business.
