What's In Store

Dessert and wine bar coming to EpiCentre later this year

Kandy Bar, an upscale, small-plate dessert wine bar and lounge is coming later this year to uptown Charlotte.

The 8,900 square-foot store will be located on the third floor of the EpiCentre next to the Vault and facing the pavilion stage.

It’s slated open in the fall or winter of this year, said Jordan Ryland, a designer at Andrew Osterlund, the Raleigh-based architect that is working on the project.

The lounge will have event space “for business meetings and things of that nature,” Ryland said.

Kandy Bar is the first of its kind from owner G. Vitale Enterprises Inc.
