Entertainment & Nightlife
A cityscape full of possibilities keeps ACC fans on their toes. Venues with everything from boisterous rockabilly tunes to sophisticated wine lists are sure to have a night out with everyone in mind.
In Center City, the animated scene at The EpiCentre is home to a handful of hotspots all within the confines of one very cool Center City address. Pick up a spare at the chic Strike City, saddle up to the belt-buckle trimmed bar at Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Whisky River, or savor global-inspired cocktails at Mez. Nearby at the NC Music Factory, this signature stroll district is breathing new life into Charlotte’s music scene with two venues that include the chandelier and red-velvet adorned Fillmore and the alfresco Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre. Beyond Center City, neighborhoods like NoDa and South End boast off-the-beaten-path venues that tout musical genres ranging from jazz to alt-rock and gallery crawls that show off masterpieces by local artists.
In addition, performances for every persuasion entertain the masses. Traveling Broadway debuts courtesy of Blumenthal Performing Arts, the high-flying ballerinas of NC Dance Theatre and the captivating concertos of the Charlotte Symphony are just a sampling of organizations that keep Charlotte’s cultural scene on the cutting edge.
