I took a trip to Charlotte
over the weekend, always fun, always exciting, always great to reconnect with people I've been friends with for years.I hit up this martini bar/lounge called "Loft 1523
" on Friday night with a friend.
Maybe I just didn't get into this type of "scene" after I left NC, but Loft 1523 is great.
I didn't know Charlotte
had these types of bars.
It's the lounge-y type, played moderate house/trance music, cool colored lights, round couches, lovely environment, great balcony with the bar overlooking the street below, great great bar for some friends to get together for a drink or two. The drinks were more expensive than usual, both my friend and I had mixed drinks in tall glasses, and they were about $10 each. But I'm guessing that's the bar's way to keep this place the welcoming sophisticated environment it currently has, instead of having it taken over by people looking for cheap drinks.
Overall, I'd recommend Loft 1523 to anyone who's looking for a lounge bar to have a few drinks.
