More than a convenience store but not quite a grocery store they have ice cream, bread, cheese and other perishable items but most relevant here, a significant focus on beer.
A local bar with regular specials and 10 taps, cocktails, encouraging shots. Located very close to Mikkeller and Friends Bottle Shop and Mikropolis.
36 taps as well as a limited bottle/can menu. All drafts and cocktails are provided at a fixed price (imports and macro beers are priced identically).
307 W Tremont Ave, Charlotte, NC 28203
Tap service is provided at either end of this large facility, but pull from the same kegs so don’t look for an alternate selection. The draw of course are their 12 mechanical duckpin bowling lanes, but there’s a lot more… There are about 16 pinball machines scattered about at $0.50 a game, but there are at least 30 other classic video games which are all free. Patio pong and giant Jenga are also free; ping pong tables and bocce ball courts are also available by the half hour or the hour ($6 and $10 respectively).
It is a very big place, but needs to be. The line to get in (they have registration kiosks where you need to sign in) and waits for games can be long when crowds build. All ages are welcome until 8pm; it’s 21 and only after that. A food truck or two are routinely parked out front.
Directly next-door to Common Market in South End.

This old building with gas lamps has been renovated to an impressive craft beer spot with 16 taps brewed on site.
604 N 4th St, Wilmington, NC 28401
This great bottle shop features mostly North Carolina breweries, 10 taps and a large seating area. Having been to over a hundred similar shops, I really feel like this is among the very best.

24 taps and a large 10 seat bar. There is one television and an open view of brewing operations. Shirts, glasses and hats available. An impressive selection; no flights are available but they do sell 5 oz pours if you want to try several.
