Justin Amick and William Stallworth, founders and principals of Painted Hospitality, an Atlanta-based company that creates and operates entertainment driven concepts, announced the opening of The Painted Duck. The Painted Duck is a drinkery, duckpin bowling and gaming parlour located in the new Stockyards Atlanta development on the Westside at 976 Brady Avenue. The Painted Duck follows The Painted Pin, an upscale boutique bar, bowling and entertainment venue in Buckhead that opened in June 2014.

The Painted Duck will play host to unique competitive group gaming options, and food and beverages from a seasoned hospitality team. The gaming area of the business will have 16 full service duckpin bowling lanes, 2 Belgian feather bowling lanes, 2 indoor horseshoe pits, knuckleball, toad in the hole, 2 indoor deck shuffleboard courts, 22 ft. table shuffleboard, a basketball 3 point and free throw shoot out, air hockey, snookball (a hybrid sport that blends pool with soccer) and other games.

Chef Thomas Collins is serving up cuisine he is dubbing “backyard barfare”. The menu offers shareable small plates, dips, sliders, sandwiches, salads, and skewered wood fired meats and proteins called “quills” prepared on a custom grill. Items such as the House Cracker Jack, Westside Beef Jerky, Duck Phat Fries and Duck Nuggets will provide plenty of small bite options. For those with larger appetites, there are salads and sandwiches such as the Smoked Beef Brisket Sandwich with pickled red onions, chili mayo, and cilantro on a brioche bun, the Shaved Vegetable Salad with yellow beets, kohlrabi, carrots, radish, apples, bitter greens, blue cheese and apple cider vinegar, and the Sausage & Peppers made with Pine Street Market spicy Italian sausage, sauteed onions peppers served on hoagie roll. The aforementioned “quills” include Hawaiian Pork & Pineapple, Spicy Chicken Thighs, Thai Ahi Tuna, Sesame Shrimp, Seasonal Garlic and Herb Vegetables, Peruvian Filet Mignon and King Crab Scampi. The menu’s piece de resistance is the Whole Roasted Peking Duck that must be ordered one hour in advance and is served family style with peppered bacon, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions and King’s Hawaiian Rolls.
