Smokey Joe's Cafe
Best dive bar in Charlotte! Gem of a music venue , local and national music. Extremely eclectic bar with every inch of wall real estate covered with local and national music memorabilia. Over 100 beers and all the liquor, especially tequila! Two pool tables, Foosball, ring toss, ping pong Table on sand, great for bare feets. Darts inside and outside. Big covered deck with great nooks and crannies. Specialty jerky behind the bar and other snacks. Gourmet hot dogs outside at the hot dog stand, locally inspired. Great atmosphere for an after work drink or for a weekend of music! Tuesday night is open mike night...you never know who you may catch sitting in with the local artists.
Fun, great music, food cart outside with hot dogs for you nearwaters, great drinks, and get up and dance music!
Dive bar. Normally not busy. Good selection of bottles and cans. Decent amount of local brews on tap.
This is my man cave. Cool bar with a nice deck outside, sandy beach area with outdoor ping pong. A great place to watch a band and chill. There's usually someone grilling or smoking something to eat outside. You can also order fuel pizza and eat it inside.
Always a great time and cheep booze too. Live music and a great cozy atmosphere. A nice break from the trendy crowd.
