If you love to spend your evenings exploring the city for the best bars, live entertainment venues, and nightclubs, you will enjoy living within Charlotte city limits.
But you don’t need to live in Uptown to be close to the thriving nightlife scene. These Charlotte neighborhoods have plenty of excitement of their own. You may be surprised which ones made the list.
5. North Davidson (NoDa)
This popular neighborhood is just north of Uptown Charlotte and is known for its local arts and entertainment scene.
Modern nightlife spots have taken over historic buildings, like the Costner House (now home to Revolution Ale House), giving the community a unique vibe.
What’s Here: The Chop Shop, Crepe Cellar Kitchen & Pub, Free Range Brewing, Heist Brewing, and the Neighborhood Theatre
Dilworth gives residents the best of both worlds.

1. Fourth Ward
