Good Place in Uptown Charlotte for Bachelorette Dinner

My best friend is hosting a bachelorette party this Saturday (4/14) for her sister and about 8 other twenty something girls in Charlotte. All are travelling from elsewhere, and as I live in Charlotte I've been asked to help in the planning last minute.

I'm looking for a fun restaurant to host 10 girls on a Saturday night. They are not a rowdy group (no veils, lifesavers, etc. will be involved) Right now I have a tentative reservation at Town. Is this my best bet? Most of the girls are from Charleston, so I'm trying to come up with something unique to Charlotte that will allow them to still be in walking distance to go out after dinner.

We're looking for something fun, energetic and able to hold a group of 10 girls. (I know its last minute)

The other places on my possible list are: Mimosa, Zink, Cosmos, Sonoma, Arpa, Rock Bottom, Nikko (not walking distance, but I had a blast there for my birthday party last month).

The other factor is that most of these girls are seniors in college and some are on tight budgets.

Any suggestions or opinions would be very much appreciated.

  1. I'd recommend the Cosmos Cafe. It's hip and fun and colorful and has different types of food and plates to meet different budgets.

    I'm not familiar with Town so I can't comment on it. I have been to Arpa and that would also be fun for a group I think. It's tapas so you can get a lot of plates and everyone can try a little. If budget is a concern, then I would not recommend Sonoma or the Mimosa Grill.

    1. I also think Cosmos would be a good choice... as would Nikko. Blue would be a fun time and they have live music, great cocktails and good food.
      I would definitely suggest you steer clear of Rock Bottom, I've never had a good experience there.
