Painted Pickle will open in an industrial indoor/outdoor warehouse in between the Buckhead and Midtown Atlanta, Ga. areas. The 32,500-sq.-ft. space will house an indoor pickleball “courtyard” with eight individually contained courts with permanent nets, a cottage clubhouse, an elevated central seating area overlooking center court, and one signature outdoor court.
Painted Hospitality, an Atlanta, Ga.-based company that creates and operates entertainment-driven concepts, bars, restaurants, and hospitality ventures, will open their newest concept—Painted Pickle—this winter. The company is already known for their concepts The Painted Pin and The Painted Duck.
Painted Pickle, a high-end pickleball “compeatery,” gaming and entertainment venue, is located in an industrial indoor/outdoor warehouse in between the Buckhead and Midtown Atlanta areas. Painted Pickle will offer an expansive front and rear patio directly adjacent to the new Northeast segment of the Atlanta Beltline, which just last month landed a $25 million grant to bring it to completion.
“In short, a compeatery is a place to compete, eat, drink and be social,” said Justin Amick, President and CEO of Painted Hospitality. “We were successful in bringing a fresh perspective to boutique bowling with The Painted Pin and re-introducing duckpin bowling to the mainstream with The Painted Duck. Now, we look forward to putting our stamp on pickleball—the fastest growing sport in the nation with Painted Pickle.”
The menu will cater to the active lifestyle and aims to revitalize, restore, and comfort. Items will include shareable small plates, salads, bowls, sushi, charcuterie boards and paninis. Beverages will include signature and classic cocktails, local and craft beer and artisanal wines by the glass and bottle.

Painted Pickle has engaged Ivan Vizcaya as the Athletic Director. Vizcaya is a former member of the University of Georgia tennis team, a certified PPR pickleball instructor and he boasts multiple 5.0 gold medals and five wins in two professional pickleball tournaments.
In addition to the unique pickleball programming, Painted Pickle will also have a stage for live music and other competitive pub games and social amenities—all complimentary—including an indoor putting green and gaming lawn, ping pong, bucketball, subsoccer tables, cornhole, table shuffleboard, darts, strategy and board games, beach and lawn games and other unique competitive gaming options.
Painted Pickle is targeting a December opening.
