Charlotte's nightlife scene continues to boom with new bars and clubs being unveiled every month. Here's an update on the latest venues set to open.
This House of Blues-type bar/restaurant next to Prevue in NoDa will host live music and comedy acts. It is tentatively set to open Oct. 17, and will have a capacity of about 1,000 people.
An upscale restaurant and nightclub is slated to open at the end of the month in the location that Eden once occupied (corner of Elizabeth and Charlottetown avenues).
Part of the Silos Subdistrict on South Boulevard, Dharma Lounge will be a place where you can attend free yoga classes during the day and dance to an eclectic mix of music at night. Originally scheduled to open this month, delays have pushed its opening to early December.
Probably one of the most anticipated venues in the EpiCentre, Strike City promises to offer bowling in an upscale, nightclub atmosphere. Signs outside the uptown entertainment complex say it's “coming soon,” but it's unlikely anyone will be knocking down pins there until at least late December.
Not a new nightspot, but the martini bar and lounge is preparing to do some major remodeling as it expands into an empty space next door. A manager at Therapy tells me plans call for adding a full kitchen and a 40-foot bar in the bigger space. Currently, the cafe serves only sandwiches and salads, but with a full kitchen, it will be able to add steak and seafood to its menu. Construction hasn't yet begun; crews are awaiting approval from the managers of the Transamerica Building, Therapy says.
