New Restaurant and Another Hotel Coming to Uptown
- Graham St. Pub & Patio – Located at 400 S. Graham Street between Bank of America Stadium and BB&T Ballpark, Graham St. Pub & Patio is in a great location. On game days, expect this place to be packed with fans. Construction is underway now and the pub will have a large patio, interior space and rooftop deck. Plans are for the pub to be open initially for lunch and dinner with plans for brunch in the future. Current plans for the menu are inspired by street-food. Expect options like bahn mi sliders and curried chicken nachos. Opening should be in October of this year.
- AC Hotel and Residence Inn – This dual-branded hotel is currently under construction with plans to open in February of 2018. Located in a 22-story tower atop the EpiCentre, the hotels will total 300 rooms with a rooftop bar, retail space, meeting space, and a “super suite”. The tower will be split, with the Residence Inn having 116 extended-stay suites on floors 14-21. The AC Hotel will occupy floors 5-12 with 184 rooms. The “super suite” will occupy the 22nd floor, adjacent to the rooftop bar and will cater to high-rollers. The rooftop bar will be run separately and is partnering with Asheville chef Peter Pollay as consulting chef.
These two exciting projects join many others as Charlotte has been adding many new hotels, restaurants and bars to the skyline. They will join the Kimpton, Embassy Suites, Springhill Suites, and Ivey’s, all either open or soon to open in Uptown.
