New Years Eve in Charlotte

19 posts in this topic

They have that first night Charlotte celebration with usually crappy bands. I went probably 5 years ago and really didn't enjoy it because you are either stuck outside in the cold or trying to get into an overcrowded bar

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.

This^^

Lived in Charlotte 15 years and I used to go uptown for NYE years ago, but it progressively got worse and worse for all the reasons stated here.

IF you really really have to go up town for lack of options/imagination. Then hit Ri-Ra's or Connolly's EARLY EARLY, post up at the bar and stay there!

Ri-Ra's is pretty good. Definitely staying away from uptown on NYE

ok. go to montford. i may even buy you a beer. heck, i will even throw in an end of year stock tip. if you can get past an occasional Robert Goulet rendtion of We are the Champions then you are gold.

uptown is not that bad but im not expecting you to drive(2nd not so subliminal hint) but hit a bar or two and thats it.

Ended up going to Ri Ra's Irish Pub in uptown (downtown),.NYE was quite packed, and filled with drunks,...wasn't too bad. Thanks for the advice everybody. Will be helpful in the future when my girlfriend and I are back down for some Panther's games!

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...

That actually sounds like fun, or at least it did when I was young. Watching people get drunk and fight and break stuff and then get arrested use to be fun. ;)

why would an Irishman spoil his fun in the states by going to a phoney Irish pub?
