Howl at the Moon
If you’re looking for a unique evening out, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Howl at the Moon, a total entertainment experience that includes live music, dancing, and drinks. It’s not your typical dueling piano setup – instead, two incredible performers offer up modern party anthems sure to get the crowd jumping.
If you’re looking for a concert and a bar experience where audience interaction is part of the fun, you’re sure to get your fill of frivolity. This venue is perfect for a fun night out or any special occasion, from birthdays and anniversaries to bachelor and bachelorette parties.
Upscale nightclubs are a dime a dozen. If you’re tired of sipping the same old somber Manhattans and Cosmos at the corner bar, venture over to Kandy Bar for a whole new nightclub experience – one that makes you feel like a kid again, but serves your adult sensibilities. This upscale Dessert Bar and Nightclub offers both bottle service and a menu of delectable desserts, from the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, to the colossal chocolate layer cake, to the liquor-infused Black Forest bourbon cupcakes.
With cocktails and confections galore, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy, but just in case you require more entertainment options, there’s also a dance floor and non-stop music performed by some of the best DJs in Charlotte. Are you and your friends looking for a reason to put on your party clothes and leave your Uptown Charlotte apartment for a night out on the town? You’ll find everything you need at Kandy Bar.
When was the last time you hit the lanes and picked up a spare? If it’s been a while, you’ve probably forgotten the fun of tossing back a beer and then tossing a ball down the alley. Events like Monday Mayhem and Taco Tuesdays make for a great reason to check out the fun, but you can stop by any time to bowl a few frames with friends or hang out in the arcade – come in on Wednesdays for half-priced arcade play. Strike City is also a great place to plan your next party if you’re looking for a night of retro fun where you don’t have to worry about yelling over the music.
Dancing to a DJ is fun, but there’s nothing quite like the intense and immediate appeal of listening to live music, which is exactly what you’ll get at Tin Roof. They feature local DJs some nights, but you can also check their calendar of events to find great live music from a rotating list of local musicians with their Unplugged and Live Concert Series nights.
You could even play a rock star yourself on karaoke night or test your music knowledge on music trivia nights. If you fancy yourself an audiophile or music aficionado, you’ll definitely want to head to Tin Roof for live tunes, tasty treats, a few brews, and the chance to cut a rug any night of the week.
Some discerning nightlife enthusiasts are on the prowl for the most exclusive, VIP experience, and Vault will not disappoint. If you’re tired of waiting hours in line only to be greeted by a crush of bodies once you get inside a club, it’s time to sample the upscale layout, skyline views, and VIP concierge service offered at Vault, which aims to deliver an elite experience that sets a new bar for nightlife.
There is no shortage of food options when you visit EpiCentre. Whether you’re seeking the wood-fired crunch of Urban Bricks pizza, you’re powering your way through the 50 beers on tap at World of Beer, or you’re looking for 24/7 greasy spoon fare at RedEye Diner, there are plenty of options to whet your palate.
