There are always new restaurants, sights, attractions, and entertainment options coming to the Uptown Charlotte area. While this helps to keep the city fresh and vibrant, it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with all of the new favorite spots in the Queen City. To make it a little easier for you to plan your outings, following are some of the latest and greatest things to do in Uptown Charlotte.
Watch a Movie in Style at Studio Movie Grill
If you are looking for something to do for date night or going out with your friends, catching one of the latest movies is always a fantastic option. But why not take things up a notch? At Studio Movie Grill, located in the EpiCentre, you can enjoy more than just a great movie. Arrive early, and you can order a cocktail from the full-service bar. But the fun doesn’t end once you find your seat in the theatre. You can order appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks to enjoy throughout the movie. From pretzel bites to margaritas, there is something for everyone.
