Alexander Michael's, or "Al Mike's" as it's affectionately known, is one of those special nightlife hangouts where you'll feel right at home the minute you set foot in the door. The low-key atmosphere and laid-back attitude of its patrons will ensure that your first visit won't be your last. There's a tasty menu available that features burgers, nachos and fried pickles, among many other delectable choices. And even though the kitchen closes early, the bar is open late, and that alone is reason enough to stay late at Al Mike's.

Charlotte, NC 28202   Directions Website

Ri~Ra isn't your everyday, run-of-the-mill Irish pub. This nightlife hot spot was actually once part of the officer's mess at the barracks at Dublin Park, so the Irish pedigree of this watering hole is unquestionably authentic. That authenticity is only augmented by the impressive collection of Dublin ledgers that date back to the 1800s. But, even though a weighty history anchors this charming place, the excellent beer selection and classic atmosphere make it a thoroughly modern favorite of visitors and locals alike.
