What’s a patio hop?

It’s when you drink a cocktail at one patio, then walk to another patio to drink your second cocktail. Yes, this term is cheesy – I just made it up.

As patio hoppers say, the only think better than one great patio, is two great patios. Actually, I’ve never heard anybody say that.

Here are your top five patio hops in Charlotte.
