Lemont Bradley, owner of the popular car detailing venue and restaurant hybrid Auto Spa Bistro, announces the opening of Eco Car Spa and Amazing Salads and Smoothies on Friday, Sept. 6 at 900 Northside Drive, NW. Eco Car Spa offers waterless car washes that save both time and environmental resources, plus the opportunity for clients to enjoy health-conscious dining options such as salads, smoothies and Italian ice.
“Eco Car Spa and Amazing Salads and Smoothies is a one-stop destination for those in search of a quick and healthy pit stop,” says Bradley. “We wanted to make the act of getting one’s car detailed less boring and more efficient while also offering a more sustainable alternative to traditional car washes.”
As a 20-year veteran of the car wash industry and the owner of nearby Auto Spa Bistro, which will celebrate a decade in business next year, Bradley was attracted to the high-traffic area of West Midtown due to its proximity to several apartment units and workout facilities, Georgia Tech, Atlantic Station and other local attractions. With Eco Car Spa, he has created a destination for Atlantans on the go, who are in search of a car wash that isn’t toxic to the environment and a friendly atmosphere where car detailing is less of a chore and more of an experience.
The waterless car wash method at Eco Car Spa uses biodegradable products that are less environmentally harmful than traditional car detergents and create a longer-lasting shine due to the wax finish. Eco Car Spa offers packages ranging from a basic exterior wash starting at $15 to a full detail for $275 and up. Window tinting and additional services such as buffing, headlight restoration, claying and paint correction also are available. The basic exterior wash can be done in 15 minutes or less for those who prefer an express service and aren’t looking to linger.
The car spa’s interior showcases a West Midtown-meets-SoHo vibe featuring vibrant local artwork from Micah Eubanks (@Mike_Meezy) and Jacques Rozier (@therealques), a lounge area with tables and booths that seat 20 people, and an outdoor seating area for guests who want to watch the car cleaning magic happen.
While waiting for car services to be completed, guests can take advantage of menu options that include smoothies, juices, salads, soups, sandwiches, wraps and Italian ice. Prices range from $3.50 for juices to $6.95 for prepared salads with protein options such as grilled chicken, salmon and turkey. Guests getting car services early in the day will appreciate the egg and cheese croissant and breakfast burrito, while those stopping by after the gym can take advantage of a post-workout smoothie ($4.95), wheatgrass and ginger lemon shots ($1), or the many other healthy snack options. Hookah also is available at Eco Car Spa, offering guests an additional way to relax during the car detailing process.
Eco Car Spa and Amazing Salads and Smoothies is located at 900 Northside Drive, NW in Atlanta’s West Midtown neighborhood. Operating hours are 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 8 a.m.-8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit theecocarspa.com.
