Charlotte is a Southern jewel whose one-of-a-kind attractions and unique beauty shine brightly. Home to a friendly, diverse and creative class of people, and constantly developing areas, tastes, sites and sounds, make this thriving city a place to visit. On this trip I visited the “Southend’ area. The Charlotte Rail Trail is popular with runners and cyclists and a walk along it will bring you to an array of entertainment options – a vibrant nightlife, craft breweries and laid-back pubs, plus buzzy restaurants serving elevated American and global cuisines.
Brokenspoke is a warm hearted distillery and brewery, serving up great light bites and beverages to spark the soul in you. Handcrafted spirits and premium beers pair well with their Charcuterie Board – (the wonderful in house) Chef Shiki’s Choice of Hand Sliced Artisanal Meats and Cheeses, Served with our House-pickled Cauliflower, Mild Cherry Peppers, House-made Rúa Whiskey Mustard, One of our House-made Salamander Vodka Jams, House-made Organic Granola, Figs, Dried Cranberries, and Toasted French Baguette Points.
Another favorite? Their Crab Cakes – Three Scratch-made Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes Cooked to a Perfect Golden Brown in Fresh Organic Lemon Juice and our Old Bay Infused Oil Served with our Wonderful House-made Cajun Remoulade. Try any cocktail with their RUA Whiskey or BAN Vodka to finish off you’re evening- and you’re set!
