Hey,

I'll be spending New Years in Charlotte with my buddy from the U.K and my girlfriend. I've only been Charlotte twice (panthers games) I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations as far as good places to spend New Year's Eve? Preferably a nice bar/irish pub type place

Irish pubs downtown? Ri Ra and Fitzgerald's come to mind. Only eaten at Fitzgerald's and never been to Ri Ra.

Just walk around and follow the crowds. I'm sure there will be some bar crawls going on.

If you don't have a hotel....stay the heck out of downtown.

If I was going to be downtown I would pay to be at one of those al inclusive parties.

CH speaks the truth it's pretty much a nightmare

dude downtown is for noobs (and morons) on NYE.

NYE is very amateurish drinking holiday in general

This is horrible advice.

Most places are going to have a pre-order ticket sale ($70-$100) for an open bar and appetizers. A lot of those places are probably sold out by now.

Any place you will be able to get into will probably have an outrageous cover and long lines for drinks. Not to mention the people inside of the clubs/bars that allow people in without a pre-ordered ticket are probably folks you don't want to hang out with if ya catch my drift.

My advice to you is do some research man. You might want to look at places like Kennedys and the Elizabeth area and jump on some of those NYE ticket deals. If you just go downtown and start walking around you're prob gonna have a disappointing night. You might be a subject to random acts of violence too.

Been to downtown once for NYE celebration. Will not go back ever again. Too many drunks, cops, and people who just want to break poo and get into fights. Downtown gets way to fuging overcrowded for me...

We're going downtown. I'm excited! All my other friends are going to WSP

Ifyou want Irish go Connellys or even Kennedy's but I'm sure they both have an all inclusive thing going on..

Don't go to Fitzgeralds unless you want to feel old
