A Guide to Great Charlotte Bars

So you’re looking for the best bars in Charlotte? You’ve come to the right place. The Epicentre in downtown Charlotte is home to some of the best bars, events, nightclubs, and entertainment in the tri-state area! Whether you’re looking for a night of great live music at a bar, nightclub dancing, or just having a drink with friends, the Epicentre in downtown Charlotte is the place to go to for the hottest nightclubs in Charlotte NC.

If you’ve never been to the Epicentre, it might be hard to pick the best bar out. That’s why we’re here! For the best nightlife in Charlotte, head to Howl at the Moon! Howl at the Moon is a WORLD FAMOUS dueling piano bar. It’s a piano bar with a twist – you pick the music, we make it ROCK! Our Charlotte live music show is fueled 100% by requests. No we’re not the off-beat, doofy cover band your cousin hired for his graduation party. Our dueling piano band is stocked with professional musicians. We’ve got some serious talent on staff! You can trust us to take your favorite song and nail it. Any song! Try us. You and your friends won’t be able to stop dancing! Why head to a Charlotte nightclub that plays generic music with the bass turned up so loud that you can’t even order a drink, when you can dance to the music you like, not some lame DJ. That is what separates us from the rest and makes us the best bar in Charlotte! (Also we have two pianos, and they’re dueling. So there’s that.)

Not only do we have amazing live music in downtown Charlotte every night, we have some of the best drink specials in Charlotte! Whether you are a craft beer drinker, or if you want to down some mixed drinks, Howl at the Moon has got you covered with our huge drink menu!
