Drinks & Nightlife
This is a fantastic Irish pub that does everything well; service is unmatched in any bar in Charlotte, they do great with their food, and the atmosphere seems to perpetuate conversations with strangers. The fireplace in the back makes for an amazing date night when it gets cold.

This bar opened in the mid 90's long before Plaza Midwood was what it is today. Their patio is unmatched to this day in the city with outdoor ping pong ("stadium seating"...no joke) and cornhole. The vibe is very chill and you'll see one of the most diverse crowds in the city.

Great place for a date or to get high end cocktails, the atmosphere is eclectic/chic/rustic all in one and the small plates focused menu is considered one of the best in Charlotte.

Food is standard meh bar food, but the rooftop patio offers a stunning view of downtown, especially as the sun sets on the other side. If you want to watch a football or baseball game or whatever, this is the place to go.

This is a legit pool hall dive bar with four or five dartboards as well.

"The Freaks Come Out at Night" would be a good theme song for this place, and I wouldn't have it any other way. If you're looking for a total departure from the generic Charlotte bar scene, go here. It's a total dive where you'll feel a little out of place without tattoo sleeves and piercings, but it's good to get out of your comfort zone...I do.

Food Scene
You wouldn't expect to see what you will inside this restaurant on the end of an old brick strip mall; the ambiance is stunning, and the food never disappoints. Reasonably priced dinner menu for the quality you get. The brunch in particular is a standout in Charlotte but I will say, you can spend a pretty penny in the mornings here.

Comfort food at its best, they were featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and are well known for their chicken n dumplings. I recommend the pot roast. Regardless of what you order, everything comes with a buttered biscuit and a deviled egg. You won't find more bang for your buck in the city than here.

This building was four different restaurants in the time I've lived here until Moo & Brew opened up. The burger is one of the best in Charlotte and it's a good bar atmosphere as well.

This place opened in mid 2018 to rave reviews, I haven't been but I know they didn't spare a penny building the place out. High end cocktails and an expensive menu for a fancy date.

This bakery has been around for years now for good reason, I recommend the Morning Glory Muffin or a bacon egg and cheese cheddar biscuit.

Classes can be up to 100 and you'll sweat your ass off. If you want a workout, go here. If you want actual yoga with meditation, it's not ideal.

If you're a musician, you have GOT to go here...but don't expect to buy anything if you're budget conscious, the cheapest guitar might not even be $1000...it's like a museum, but so worth it.
