Recognized by The New York Times and named by Garden & Gun Magazine as one of the “Best Bourbon Bars in the South,” The Crunkleton will open a second location in the historic Elizabeth neighborhood on Monday, December 17.
Gary Crunkleton’s cocktail menu features classic cocktails, crafted swills and rare liquors that you won’t find at any other bar in the South.
“It took us years to build a cocktail culture in Chapel Hill, and we are excited to bring this energy and experience to Charlotte,” said Crunkleton. “Our approach to cocktails and hospitality is a step back in time.”
Here are the cocktails at the top of our ‘must-try’ list when The Crunkleton opens in Charlotte on Dec. 17:
(1) Brock Landers
(2) Disco Devil
(3) Elderflower Sour
(5) Scarface Cohiba
(6) Sweet Chin Music
(7) White Negroni
The Charlotte location will add one more element to this widely-recognized cocktail bar: A full kitchen centered on an open-hearth, offering live-fire cooking for dinner nightly.
The dinner menu is designed to complement these exquisite cocktails, featuring adventurous appetizers, bold entrees and delicious shared items. Co-owner Zach Goodyear will lead the kitchen, sharing his two-time NC Barbecue Champion knowledge with the crew.
The Crunkleton Charlotte is a private club, and memberships are available online for $10 per year. The restaurant and cocktail bar is located at 1957 E. 7th Street and will be open weekdays from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. and weekends from 12 p.m – 2 a.m.
