You know those places. The ones that have been around forever, you might pass them on the regular going to and from your normal grind, and each time you do, you say to yourself, “Man, I need to get back there.” Then, once you do remember to get back there, you’re standing at the bar and say to yourself, “Yup, this is the moment I start to become a regular here.” You are having the absolutely best time, drinks are flowing, music is jamming and you are just vibing with the people and the place. All of a sudden, the next time you get there, it has been over a year since you vowed to yourself to become a regular.
For those of your racking your brains, because you know the exact places I am referring to, but just cannot seem to remember them, search no further! Today, I am happy to remind you of ten of those spots in and on the cusp of Uptown!
French Quarter – Servicing Charlotte for over 25 years, this restaurant/bar serves comfort food with a Cajun twist, along with outstanding drinks!
Courtyard Hooligans - Normally the top of people’s minds during World Cup time, this spot is great for even more than to catch a soccer game.
Valhalla Pub &Eatery - Letting a secret out, these are some of the best mixed drinks, specifically margaritas, in the city.
Belfast Mill & The Cotton Room- An authentic Northern Ireland Pub with plenty of Irish beverages on tap and ready to be mixed! Check out The Cotton Room located in Belfast Mill for a swank Speakeasy vibe.
The Wooden Vine - If a wine bar is more your scene, the Wooden Vine feels like you could be cuddled up in a little bistro in Europe.
Corner Pub – Your favorite neighborhood bar you never knew you needed in your life. Whether it is to get wild on a Saturday night or grab a quick cold one and throw some darts after work on a Tuesday, Corner Pub can give you just that.
Crave - Desserts are just the best and Crave offers some fantastic ones. They also have some really fun mixed cocktails with both sweet and savory undertones. The best time to hit up Crave, though, is for their daily specials.
Shophia’s Lounge - Being transported back into the Victorian age is how you will feel when hanging out at Sophia's.
Infused Bar Charlotte- Serving infused cocktails, as well as your standard offerings, this neighborhood spot has been low-key loved for over 15 years in First Ward.
Tin Roof - Tucked in on the second floor of the Epicentre, there is great food, plenty of drinks, and live music every single night!
