Interested in getting the lowdown the newest restaurant and retail additions to Atlanta? From a place to enjoy barbecue to a cycling studio where you can burn off those calories, read on for the newest hot spots to open their doors around town.
Wood's Chapel BBQ
New at 85 Georgia Ave. SE in Summerhill is Wood's Chapel BBQ, a barbecue spot, offering sandwiches and more.
Wood's Chapel BBQ is a project of the partners behind the popular General Muir deli restaurant, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The sprawling new restaurant in the Carter redevelopment serves up all the expected favorites — pork, brisket, turkey and ribs — plus barbecued salmon in platters and sandwiches. There are also sides and appetizers like greens, creamed corn, Brunswick stew, beet and jalapeno cole slaw, smoked wings and boiled peanuts. And for non-carnivores, there's a banh mi made with celery root.
Rukus Cycling Studios
Rukus Cycling Studios is a spot that holds cycling classes. It recently opened at 670 DeKalb Ave. NE, Suite D, in Inman Park.
Part of the new Edge on the Beltline development, the studio's third Georgia location offers a variety of themed classes every day in a screen-lined "CycleArena" where power, mileage, heart rate and more is displayed alongside what the company's website says is a points-based leaderboard. Mood lighting and music set the tone. There's also resistance training.
Lacquer Nail Bar
Head over to 661 Auburn Ave., Suite 140 in Old Fourth Ward and you'll find Lacquer Nail Bar, a nail salon.
Also new along the Beltline, the women-owned, dog-friendly salon offers nail services, such as powder-dip manicures and a deluxe pedicure, featuring extra massage time, a leg mask and a hot towel wrap. Other services include waxing and eyelash enhancements. There are also complimentary beverages.
