Char­lotte can’t get enough of craft cock­tails. Here are some of the new­est cock­tail bars, and two we have our eyes on.

Where Charlotte - - WHERE NOW | CHARLOTTE -


The Ritz- Carl­ton’s new con­cept lobby bar fea­tures jazz and Latin mu­sic nights, bites to share, and, most im­por­tantly, cock­tails—like the “Al­ways Have Peach- Other” made with limon­cello and Ciroc Peach Vodka, lemon juice, a red wine float and fin­ished with a flo­ral gar­nish. 201 E. Trade St., 704.547.2244


Mixol­o­gist Colleen Hughes has made this NoDa hang­out mod­eled af­ter a mill town South­ern kitchen, known for more than just fried chicken. Cock­tail of­fer­ings change reg­u­larly, but they al­ways have a twist, such as ball ice in­fused with herbs and flow­ers. 3106 N. David­son St., 704.817.1084

The Im­pe­rial

‘Clas­sic with a mod­ern touch’ is how to best de­scribe this bar. The Twisted Old Fash­ioned fea­tures gin­ger, and the Royal Ap­ple Mule in­fuses life to a clas­sic cock­tail that’s ‘been-there­done-that’ lately. 300 N. Col­lege St., 980.495.5822

ON OUR RADAR: Zep­pelin

Slated to open late spring/early sum­mer, this rus­tic­mod­ern bar that chan­nels the 1900s will spe­cial­ize in craft cock­tails, but will also serve small bites. 235 W. Tre­mont Ave.
