Dram & Draught opened in 2016 with the promise of being an excellent neighborhood bar and now, this Raleigh-based spot will get it’s first location in Charlotte, hoping to recreate its success. Here’s everything you need to know about this Raleigh favorite.
Dram & Draught knows their whiskey–the original bar has 300 different types from around the world–but doesn’t skimp on other options, There’ll be non-alcoholic cocktails, creatively crafted, new and old world wine, and beers from popular, local breweries.
Just looking at their other location menus–Raleigh’s, for example–there’s quite a bit of everything for every palette. From spiced cocktails with mezcal to floral and citrus ones with vodka, there’s more than just whiskey, in case you’re a little adverse. For the whiskey fan though, there’s plenty of signature cocktails as well as elevated takes on originals like Whiskey Sours and Old Fashioned. The cocktail menu at the Charlotte location won’t be exactly the same and instead will match the neighborhood, just as the decor will, which is said to be contemporary and modern.
You can visit Dram & Draught in South End across from Charlotte Beer Garden, adding to the growing list of eateries and bars we’ve seen hit the city this year. They’re hoping for a November opening.
