Welcome to Essex Bar & Bistro, where the cocktail is king. Charlotte's newest uptown craft cocktail bar and gastropub, Essex is part bistro, part lounge, and part meeting place. We've put as much care into the craft of cocktailing as we do our menu of international cuisine, which are designed to complement our master mixologist's liquid creations. Located in the heart of uptown Charlotte at Trade & Tryon, and only steps away from the Spectrum Center, Essex is the perfect place for happy hour, evening cocktails, after-dinner drinks, or a late night rendezvous.

I went to Essex based on a recommendation from the Westin in Charlotte and they were spot on! Only a 10 minute walk from the hotel and this place delivered on all fronts! The food was absolutely amazing, the service was fast and on point and the patio was pleasant sound level for conversation while you can still hear the entertainment from inside, giving it a great restaurant atmosphere.
Pros: The specialty cocktails, the Bang-Bang Grouper, Lamb Chops and everything else about this place!
Cons: You have some noise from the busy streets.
