My boyfriend and I will be meeting in Charlotte for Valentine's weekend (awwwww...right?) We are staying at the Hilton Charlotte City Center (the one that was just renovated). We are looking for some fun hangouts that are close to the hotel. We are much more into live music/PBR/cheap drinks/bar food, than into anything swanky. One of the last nights we had out that was a blast was drinking $2 bud lights and watching a Talking Heads cover band, if that gives you an idea of what we like.
Any suggestions on some cool bars with great drink specials, live music or an interesting vibe?
