My first time at Fairweather was an amazing one. First, our service staff was attentive and friendly. Second, all the cocktails for my table were high quality and tasted amazing. Third, the foodI dont have a favorite because they all tasted amazing. If I had to pick one, I would say the mussels dish. The food elevated the cocktail experience. If you havent been to Fairweather yet, make your way. I have a feeling that it will get so busy with the cocktail enthusiasts who enjoy dining with cocktails, it will be hard to get tables. I hope to return soon to experience few more amazing cocktails and food to go with them.
Wow! What a fantastic experience. My wife and I went to Idlewild not even knowing that this place existed and were sent here when we joined the waitlist for Idlewild. The menu here is classic cocktails with a twist. I got the penicillin which was borrowing from its classic big brother to become by far the best penicillin Ive ever had. This fresh take was so delicious and so wonderful I got another. My wife got the drink with lemon and Prosecco. It was fantastic! No food for us this time as we had already ate, but I could not be happier and more excited that this place is here. The owner, Vince, also owns Idlewild which is a favorite spot for my wife and I for excellent cocktails in a up environment. This eclectic, dark, and casually elegant expression at the Fairweather is certainly a welcome addition to the Charlotte area. Excellently crafted cocktails. Also, gotta give a shout to our server Jess. From the moment she said hi she was just the right amount of high level service and casual energy. Amazing personality and EXCELLENT attention to detail. Ask for her if you stop by.
If you love Idlewild then youll definitely love their sister concept Fairweather. The cocktails are executed perfectly and they food is delicious (the oysters are a must). Cant wait to come back!
In my opinion, nothing can touch this place. The drink quality, freshness of the oysters and presentation, attention to detail, ambiance/atmosphere, the crew that makes it all happen is all excellent. Theyve really nailed the ambiance for an intimate atmosphere - not too loud, not too quiet, excellent lighting. my second visit and I will be back for many more.
Fantastic cocktails, delicious food, and outstanding service. Beautiful atmosphere. So happy to have a spot this great right in my neighborhood.
