The owner of nightlife giant Raleigh Beer Garden now has his eyes set on Charlotte.
If you’ve ever spent any time in downtown Raleigh, you’ve certainly been to Raleigh Beer Garden. If not, ask your Triangle friends.
Owner Niall Hanley is expecting to bring that same vibe to a new project in South End — to be named Charlotte Beer Garden.
Hanley has an eye for design and a mind for what people want. Currently, he says Raleigh Beer Garden is the world record holder for most beers on tap with 350+. He could top that with Charlotte Beer Garden.
In addition to the beer, there will also be plenty of delicious food and crafty cocktails. If you’ve ever been to the Raleigh Beer Garden, you know it has flair.
The giant tree is a major centerpiece, and look for that design aesthetic to be a part of Charlotte Beer Garden.
The space — at 1300 South Tryon — is still being fleshed out. But expect it to reflect somewhere cool to relax, but also to party hard. Somewhere you can bring visitors to show off what Charlotte has to offer, not uptight, but welcoming to anyone.
They are still in the design process so it is certainly still early in the process.
With the emergence of South End as a legitimate night life district, look for Charlotte Beer Garden to set the bar ever higher.
