The Belk Bowl kicks off Saturday, December 29th right here in Charlotte featuring the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Virginia Cavaliers. And if you’re looking for a spot to grab game-day food and drinks in and around uptown, our friend Nikki Wolfe with Yelp Charlotte has your fix.

Tilt on Trade – “One of my favorite watering holes in uptown, super chill dive bar type feel.”

Not Just Coffee – Packard Place – “Get your caffeine fix here.”

Murphy’s Kitchen and Tap “Must stop place. High level quality Irish fare, possibly the best Reuben in the city. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and brunch on Sundays.”

Connolly’s on Fifth – “No frills, great Irish pub in the heart of everything.”

JJ’s Red Hots (Uptown)  – “JJ’s newest location. Their flagship store (East Blvd) was featured on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives.”

Rhino Market & Deli  – “Craft beer and wine, breakfast burritos are hangover cures… Chicken Torta is their #1 sandwich. Lot of vegetarian options.”

The Cellar at Duckworth’s – “Super cool speakeasy located downstairs at Duckworth’s Grill & Taphouse. Fabulous food and handcrafted drinks. If you’re looking for a Bud Light, this is not your place.”

Town Brewing Company – “Just down the street from the stadium, one of Charlotte’s newest breweries. Grab food after at Rhino Market or Pinky’s.”
