NYE 2012 in Asheville - Need Recommendations for Dinner and Nightlife

Hi all,
New to NC and will be going to Asheville from Charlotte for New Years Eve. We are staying downtown for the 31st, and out at a cabin on the 29th and 30th.

We are not wanting a stuffy or formal seating for New Years Eve, prefer a la carte vs. set menu and does not need to be super fancy. Consider ourselves foodies who honed our tastebuds in Dallas. Obviosuly reservations may be tough so we may have to go with a non reservation restaurant. Not interested in chains.
We love gastropubs, small plates, etc.

We are also looking for a fun spot from 10pm on. Would love dancing/dj/band if not super cheesy or black tie.

Help please????

  1. I'd suggest calling The Admiral today for a reservation. I'm not really sure if they'll still have any available, though. From what you've described, it sounds like it would be perfect.

    (828) 252-2541, and they ask that you call before 5:00pm

      Thanks! I am going to try to do The Admiral on Friday night because Thurs and Friday night we are driving in from a cabin. For NYE, so we don't have to drive, I was able to get into Zambra.
