Painting the Town (exist) - 6

Austin Holt | July 9, 2014 | Articles

Contrary to first appearances, The Painted Pin is not your momma’s bowling alley. Tucked away speakeasy-style, off the beaten path of Buckhead’s Miami Circle, the cavernous space includes 20 theatrically trimmed bowling lanes, overstuffed Chesterfield couches (where you can sip craft cocktails between turns) and a standout bar dishing out finger-friendly fare (don’t miss the waffle dogs). As if that wasn’t enough, a collection of old-timey games pulled directly from the pubs of Old England makes this buzzin’ destination the perfect double-date night. “We wanted to bring hospitality to bowling,” explains co-owner Justin Amick (of The Spence notoriety)—“a modern English aesthetic, upscale alley fare and craft bar competency with dive-bar nostalgia.”

So what does this mean for your night of 10 pin? Walk in and sign in at the front counter. While the lane is being prepared, grab a Moscow Mule slushie (though the wine selection is also top-tier), and put in an order for a wood-fired pizza. Have a go at Skee-Ball, bocce, Ping-Pong, shuffleboard, basketball, Skittles—you name it. You’ll get a text when your lane is ready, where you’ll find your shoes and balls waiting. Oh, and did we mention there are laneside beer taps? Hospitality, indeed. 737 Miami Circle NE, 404.814.8736, @thepaintedpin
