Bowling allies and arcades are filled with little kids running around everywhere and usually only have cheap alcohol or none at all. At The Painted Duck, you will find no kids, a bunch of games, and a whole lot of drinks. This underground adult playground in Atlanta will be your next party destination.
The Painted Duck is located in downtown Atlanta and is a little hard to find. It is hidden in an alleyway and the entrance is two neon green doors that will lead you down to a hidden paradise.
The entire location is 26,000 square feet. This gives you a lot of room to play!
The number one game at The Painted Duck is the famous duck bowling. It is just like regular bowling, but miniature. There are 16 lanes, but you might want to get there right at 5:00 p.m. because it is first come first serve.
The lanes, bowling balls, and pins are tiny, but that does not mean this game of bowling is easier.
On the weekends it is $35 per lane, per hour, and on the weekdays, it is $25.
While you are waiting for a lane, you can grab a drink, or a few, at the large bar with hundreds of bottles on the shelves. There are all different types of drinks, and you can even order a cocktail that has glitter in it.
The cocktails range from $8 to $12, and you can pair your drink with something off of their unique food menu which includes pulled pork sliders, sandwiches, and even a full Peking duck for $100.
Relive your childhood with giant games of horseshoe, shuffleboard, and knuckleball.
The Painted Duck is a great place to celebrate any occasion or to just have a fun night with your friends. It is a place you can let loose and feel like a kid again.
