Inside Refuge, Charlotte’s Experimental Hybrid Hotel That Won’t Be Around For Long
On a quiet, unassuming corner where Central and Hawthorne meet in Charlotte’s quirky Plaza Midwood is a hospitality concept like no other. Co-owned by partners in work in life Nimisha and Jay Patel, and Anup Patel (Jay’s brother), Refuge is a five-room hybrid hotel that’s many things: a place to stay. A place to gather and work. It’s also home to Humbug, the highly anticipated bar pop-up by area industry veterans Larry Suggs and Andy Schools opening on August 3.
