The 3rd Spot pairing giant entertainment complex with global small plates at The Works

A 26,000-square-foot entertainment complex that will feature a “globally-inspired” menu is slated to open early next year on the Upper Westside.

Located at 400 Chattahoochee Row in a revitalized industrial building, the 3rd Spot will offer bowling, an arcade, billiards, shuffleboard, pingpong and curling, as well as a 4,000-square-foot patio with lawn games. Guests will have the option to take a slide to the indoor/outdoor “Uncommons” level from the mezzanine level (stairs and an elevator will also be available).

The 3rd Spot space will function as a combination of bar, restaurant, cafe, beer garden and social club. The menu will offer a variety of small plates, handhelds and sharable items. While dishes are still being finalized, customers can expect items like Brazilian cheese bread, crispy rice salmon tartare, French onion Wagyu sliders and Karaage fried chicken.

A full bar will also include custom cocktails and nonalcoholic options.

A mobile app will “streamline the experience and shorten wait times, while making ordering, payment, and connecting pain-free,” according to a press release.

AMP Up1 Hospitality, the Atlanta-based, employee-owned group behind the 3rd Spot, plans to announce a second location in 2021, with a goal of opening 10 more within the next five years, three of those in metro Atlanta. Other planned locations include Illinois, North Carolina and Florida.

The Works, an 80-acre adaptive mixed-use development by Selig Development, is already home to several food and beverage concepts, including Dr. Scofflaw’s brewery and the Chattahoochee Food Works food hall. In the coming months, the Waffle Experience, as well as an unnamed concept from the owners of The Select, and Brash Kitchen will join the tenant roster.
