Some of you have already visited, but for those of you who haven't yet ventured into Flight Beer and Music Hall, you're in for an uptown treat! Flight offers 90+ local craft brews on tap, 90% of which are North Carolina beers, and a few domestics for the rest of you. With crafty selections also comes a full-range menu, which seems to be their best kept secret. Every Monday, $35 all you can eat crab legs, potatoes and corn. On the regular, homemade mac and cheese, "garbage plates," and most importantly: build your own bomber brat menu, specially made from Flynn Farms in Concord, NC.
On stage Friday and Saturday nights, you can find very diverse musical talents, which is simply refreshing about the weekend scene uptown! Hosting local bands each week, they also invite national acts each month, and open mic nights in between. Different musical sets range between country, rock, reggae and even some throwback 80's and 90's cover bands! (Blue Monday, Aug 18th)
The newest summer event is the Drunken Spelling Bee! It's truly great. This month, a local charity helping to provide school supplies for underprivileged children and teachers is teaming up with Flight in efforts to collect more.
"Those who bring in school supplies receive one complimentary drink, courtesy of our sponsors," says Event Manager, Stephanie Marrero. "We have our spelling bee the last Friday of each month, from 7-9pm."
Other weekly events include Music Bingo every Tuesday from 7-9pm, and coming up in August, Battle of the Bands every Thursday until the grand finale at the end. The winners will receive a $2K music video prize!
Lastly, football season is finally approaching, and it's time to highlight this beer garden as the home of Charlotte's Gamecock Nation! Friday, September 1st, Flight will be hosting the best Carolina kickoff party in Uptown! Patrick Davis will be performing, the talented Cheerleaders with mascot Cocky will be pumping up the crowd, and other surprise guests will pop in with special announcements. This is will be an open event to fans, and a great tailgate time! Saturday, September 2nd, USC vs NC State will be in Charlotte for the Belk College Kickoff Game, and of course it will be aired, audio sound included.
Located in the heart of Queen City, the atmosphere and space is described most often as “rustic." The patio includes a extra long picnic tables and Jumbo Jenga and cornhole for those who aren't occupied with Skee-Ball, Ping Pong or NBA Hoops inside. The partners behind this successful project also own familiar restaurants and popular spots such as Libretto’s Pizzeria, Draught, Prohibition, and Angry Ale’s.
