Three Spirits Brewery
Three Spirits Brewery’s motto is simple – it wants to offer great beers in a great environment. An idea of a former ER doctor who was perhaps very inspired the “A Christmas Carol,” Three Spirits is spread across a 9,100-square-foot, 10-barrel brew house, whose interiors strongly resemble the story.
Started by a couple who are parents to elementary-attending children, Tabu and Jennifer have worked pretty hard to make sure that Three Spirits remains the most family-friendly brewery.
Not only does Three Spirits serve great drinks, they have a great food truck to go along with that too.
That said, there’s a lot you can do here other than the great drinks and food, such as taking part in the only escape room inside a brewery with Charlotte’s Cryptex Games, or playing classic arcade games. Now that’s really rare.
You cannot leave here without trying out the award-winning Red Moon Rising, Honey Porter and Agate Have It brown ale. All of these have won the U.S. Open Beer Championship.

If you value something simple yet impactful, then you should definitely give Rooster's Wood Fired Kitchen a try. Located in uptown Charlotte, practically everything about the place says that it’s simple and refined - a combination that is rare to find. The ambience is definitely a visual treat, with its candlelight-illuminated bars, and worn-wood booths and tables. Famous for its wood-fired grill, Rooster's menu changes with every season, and feature classic, no-nonsense, farm-to-table delicacies. Though chicken is the main highlight of this place, they do offer other mains such as steak, pork chop and duck. They also offer a wide range of sides, from fire roasted beets and succotash to buttery-steamed spinach. They even have a great cheese board that can never disappoint.
Yes, that's right. The erstwhile Passion8 is now Luca's Modern Italian Kitchen. Everything else, though, is still the same. Or rather, even better. Not only is Luca's one of the best Italian restaurants in Charlotte and its environs, it is also the best Italian restaurant serving food made from locally-sourced ingredients.
