The Duck

The Painted Duck is a distinguished drinkery, duckpin bowling, and gaming parlour located in the Stockyards Atlanta development on the Westside at the intersection of 10th Street and Brady Avenue (976 Brady Avenue). The Painted Duck includes 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 unique competitive group gaming options.

Sidenote! Duckpin bowling is a variation of traditional ten-pin bowling where the balls and pins are smaller and players get 3 rolls per frame vs. the traditional 2. Belgian feather bowling is a game played with a wooden “cheese wheel” that is rolled down a trough shaped alley towards a feather. The object is to get the ball as close to the feather as possible.

The cuisine is “backyard barfare” and offers shareable small plates, dips, sliders, sandwiches, salads, and skewered wood fired meats and proteins called “quills” prepared on a custom show-stopper grill. The beverage program focuses on signature and classic cocktails, artisanal wines by the glass and local and craft beer. Valet parking is available during all hours of operation.
