Draught Charlotte Opens On Cedar

Draught Charlotte officially opens to the public today on Cedar Street in the shadow of the Bank of America Stadium just in time for tonight’s Panthers' preseason opener. It’s not only Charlotte’s newest upscale sports and craft beer bar which has 34+ beers on tap (owner Jason Astephen, who owns Prohibition in Charlotte knows his stuff), but also serves up delicious food from two Johnson & Wales alumnae, exec chef Tony Maiolo and sous Bruce Florio.

They offer lunch, dinner, game day and late night menus that go well beyond basic bar food. Their appetizers take some classics and turn them on their head like Root Beer or Cheerwine BBQ wings, or crab stuffed deviled eggs, but offer some new “soon to be classics” like an egg roll of the week or pimento cheese fritters. Want something healthier? Try a Cranberry Apple Salad with grilled chicken and maple cider vinaigrette or Warm Kale salad. Their entrees are definitely beyond what you’d expect from a bar: how about a Crown Royal Maple Glazed Smoked Duck Breast over a bed of wilted Purple Kale and Wild Rice or Hoisin Glazed Scallops over cucumber slaw and Orange Jalapeno Vinaigrette. At lunch, they offer lots of sandwiches and burgers including a lemon dijon salmon burger and Pulled Turkey, cornbread and cranberry sandwich. They also have a kids menu for the little people.

The space is rustic chic with lots of reclaimed wood and industrial light fixtures. They are finishing up furnishing their patio and downstairs room, which can be rented out for private parties.
