The Battery Atlanta announced the openings of Pepper Boxing, Gio’s Chicken Siciliana and Lush Nail Bar.

Pepper Boxing, a Nashville-established boxing gym, opened June 15 in a 4,800-square-foot studio. It will be home to a fitness studio as well as the first P.B. Boutique, a collection of boxing-inspired athleisure wear. The classes feature a three-part workout focused on boxing and weight training in a circular “ring” bag layout for unobstructed instruction.

As a part of the summer Family Series at The Battery Atlanta, Pepper Boxing will host Pepper’onis, a free youth boxing clinic, on June 19, 26 and July 10, 17 and 24 at 9:30 a.m.

Gio’s Chicken Siciliana, an Italian concept from restaurateur Giovanni Di Palma, will open in the next few weeks in a 3,000-square-foot restaurant on Battery Avenue across from Cru Food & Wine Bar. This is Di Palma’s second restaurant to open at the Battery.

Lush Nail Bar will open at the end of the month in a 1,790-square-foot luxury nail spa located on Heritage Court, across from Wahlburgers. Services offered include beauty care, ranging from organic nails to eyelash extensions.

Other upcoming openings include The VOID, a critically-acclaimed global leader in immersive virtual experiences, opening later this summer; and PH’EAST, authentic Asian food hawkers, opening in the fall.
