Envision yourself sipping a cocktail as you gaze out at a starry skyline. While a favorite new song is playing in the background, another guest has challenged you to a game of pool. Seamlessly, you’ve managed to create the perfect social scenario without even leaving the hotel lobby.
Whether you’re playing pool, ordering a bite from the full menu or chatting up the bartender, you tune your ears to enjoy some of the latest music from Charlotte’s emerging talents. W XYZ bar hosts Live At Aloft Hotels, a series of acoustic performances featuring local artists. When live music isn’t on deck, a DJ spins top beats.
When the social butterfly within you wanes, retreat to the indoor pool, where conditions are always perfect despite the chill in the air outside. A dip in the splash pool, lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminates stellar views of the Queen City in its evening glory.
Towel off and satiate any lingering post-swim craving, day or night, at Re:fuel by Aloft. This quick stop is stocked with tasty and light grab-and-go meals.
