I guess you could say I’ve always had an affinity for quirky streets lined with the perfect proportion of booming bars, carefully crafted cocktails and midnight bowling — where you actually bowl.
As a new Charlottean (that’s the correct word, right?), I’ve made it my mission to find an area that gets my Virginia Tech roots. It has to have the appropriate amount of college bars and late-night greasy French fries that can cure just about anything.
Trivia nights, wings (I dare you to have just one) and $3 mimosas on Sundays – I mean, can you go wrong?
Oh, Brazwells, from your generous pours of sangria to your cozy fire pit and patio combo – you’ve really won my heart. Pro tip: Their Kickin’ Chicken Kabobs are everything. You need them in your life. Right now.
The Roasting Company
Comfort food and craft beer are calling your name.
10 Park Lanes
Bowling and brews. This place will take you back to those years of telling your parents you were midnight bowling and well, not. Just me? I digress.
Good Food On Montford
Grab a Moscow Mule and snag a cozy seat early, it’s always bustling with Charlotteans.
