The Cotton Room at Belfast Mill
Just got voted NC's sexiest bar! Perfect for a date night or just a relaxed night with friends. The bartenders are amazing at what they do, and always great conversation.
Cozy cocktail bar with hand crafted, custom cocktails. No waitresses- you need to push though to the bar to get a drink. Wide selection of alcohol but a fairly limited selection on their custom drink menu. Most of the drinks were whiskey based. Would have liked a wider selection of custom drinks with other types of alcohol. Drinks were $10 to $15 each. The drinks did have were very good.
Took my wife here on a Saturday at 6:00pm. One bartender doing all the work. Great cocktail, but he was rude when I went up for a second drink. Asked me if I needed something. I told him Id rather just take my check than be a bother. Would be a MUCH better place if they had at least one bar back. Ive been to far superior speak easy type spots and have never been treated poorly. I dont think it was his fault because he was doing it all, making drinks, serving drinks, cashing out etc. But to be rude to someone for standing near the bar waiting to order another drink is totally unacceptable. I would never recommend going here unless you have 2 hours to spend and and only want one drink and dont mind being treated like a pest.
Incredible service, knowledgeable, and creative. Truly encapsulates the spirit of Charlotte. A must visit for anyone visiting uptown. If you're fortunate enough, Alyssa is amazing, one of the best bartenders you'll ever get a drink from.
A little gem in Uptown for a good cocktail. Cozy space with a decent drink menu.
