The newest edition to Charlotte’s already amazing line up of cocktail bars is a cocktail lounge and garden concept called Canopy Cocktails, a sister venue to the already established CLT Beer Garden in South End. They just opened at the end of July, and there’s already been quite a lot of excitement surrounding the cocktail bar.
The expansive venue has three different lounge areas (two inside and one outside) with a unique vibe to each. The outdoor patio is more on the casual side with white high top chairs, comfy couches made of rattan and plush white upholstery, umbrellas and plants. The inside has more of a speakeasy vibe with a live fireplace, candles, and elegant plush burgundy couches.
They’re doing their own spin on classic cocktails with fun names, like their Nori Old Fashioned and Panic at the Pisco, all crafted and garnished beautifully. Though they don’t have food yet, they’re hoping to expand to have a kitchen serving small plates to go alongside your cocktail. They’re very active on social media, so follow them on Instagram for any updates.
