Great cocktail bar! Probably one of the best. Only reason it doesnt receive 5 stars, its almost impossible to grab a table/drink. If you plan ahead, and make a reservation you will be fine. If you plan on stopping by for a quick drink good luck, it wont happen. Their idea is simple, great cocktails and no standing around. This creates high quality drinks and a comfortable atmosphere. A must try if youre around Charlotte.
This is absolutely the best cocktail bar I've ever been to. I love that there's no menu and the mixologist makes you a drink based on the ingredients you like. The atmosphere is chill and sexy. Great for a relaxing date night or to just hang out with friends. This is my new spot!! Oh and for ice lovers, THIS is heaven!
We were so happy to get a walk-in spot on beautiful, busy Saturday. All of the reservations were booked, but we had time for one drink before the next one. I dont like gin, so asked out server to make me something with gin I wouldnt hate and he picked the perfect drink! The Water Lily. The intimate, chic atmosphere was perfect for date night or a girls night out. Will definitely be back to try new drinks.
We had a great night here! The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. We loved the bartenders choice menu and got some delicious and fun drinks. Our servernot sure his name (idlewild b on the bill) but he had an awesome funky shirt and long hairwas warm and attentive. Looking forward to coming back soon and bringing friends.
The concept of a cocktail bar with no menu is fascinating and well-executed. Our waitress was attentive, asked thoughtful and specific questions, and chose cocktails for us that were completely divine. We got two cocktails each and both were things I likely would not have chosen off a menu, but enjoyed thoroughly. We ordered a charcuterie board as well to snack on. Cocktails were listed at $15, no matter what they brought you. This didnt happen to us, but the man at the table next to ours didnt like his drink. It was whisked away and replaced immediately with something he liked better. It has a moody, cool kids atmosphere and stellar service. We will definitely recommend Idlewild to all our friends and will certainly be back when we find our way back to Charlotte.
