210 Trade | EpiCentre

Recommended Posts

Dale Earnhart Jr. has announced that he will open up a bar at Epicentre this December. Whiskey River will take up 10,000 square feet on the Trade Street side, facing the arena but won't be dedicated to NASCAR as some would think. It will resemble a basement bar that anyone would enjoy hanging out in. Think lots of wood and metal decorations, multiple TVs and a mechanical bull.

More information can be found at Charlotte.com.

All very nice additions to the uptown restaurant stock. We need some laid back atmosphere's, and I'm particularly happy that Cold Stone is going in, other then DD/BR theres no ice cream spots.

Now if Gahzi can pull off some clothing and regular retail options I'll be very happy.

So another venue that isn't going to North Carolina Music Factory?

So it looks like Fox Sports Grill will be coming there after all? I know there was some discussion on here as to whether or not that would happened. I'm excited about this list too. I think having a late night Wine & Coffee bar will fill a void too.

There's a PJs in Atlantic Station down in Atlanta, pretty cool place - coffee house by day - wine bar/lounge at night. Part of the Raving Brands (moes, shanes rib shack, smoothie king, etc) if I'm not mistaken.

This is a very great, and very surprising line up of restraunts and retail. Number one- Wild Wing Cafe is one of my favorites. I remember there being a topic of conversation a little while ago about wanting to see a Buffalo Wild Wings downtown. Although two different products, Wild Wing Cafe is really great. Since WWC has a sports bar in it with many TV's, it looks like theres will be a few bars as part of the complex and places to watch our sports.

Also surprising me is all of the cheaper restaunts, or more friendly to a wide variety of audience. I was anticipating higher end retail since it is downtown, to serve to the business people, but I am so happy that we are seeing places like Cold Stone, Jasons Deli, and Smoothie King.

I was one of the UP posters that brought up Buffalo Wild Wings. I can definitely settle for a Wild Wing Cafe :) This is going to be great. On a Friday night, head down to WWC for some pre-game dinner. Walk over to Bobcats Arena to catch a game. Then walk back and maybe go to Whisky River or Fox Sports grill. Can't wait!

I actually think laser tag downtown, and paired up with the other entertainment venues of epicentre would be awesome. The only other one I'm aware of is down Independence by Rock & Roll Emporium.

It would be awesome, I think there is a laser tag coming to Ballantyne in addition to a new bowling alley there.

Does anyone know how many screens there will be in the cinema or how many lanes will be in the bowling alley? I also read the the Earnhardt club will be ready in December. Does that seem feasable?

They were projecting an opening date of the end of October for the complex - I am sure one store in the complex would do to make that date, but I would think December would be possible.

I wonder how old some of the lists are that are circulating about what will be in the epicenter. I heard a long time ago that the bowling alley was out. I think the movie theatre has been reduced to 5 screens.

Any word on who will be the operator of the bowling alley...initially advertised as Lucky Strike, but we are not listed in their "upcoming locations".

I didn't think you could make bowling part of high society. Are they not going to let us poor people come play downtown?

From their website at http://www.bowlluckystrike.com/

Lucky Strike Entertainment is the nation's premier destination for dining, lounging and bowling. Opening our first location in 2003, Lucky Strike Hollywood - an upscale bowling lounge with gourmet food, plush seating, and signature cocktails, was an immediate and overwhelming hit. We've been recognized in national publications as a leader in our industry and 2006 saw our CEO named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young. Currently we have 12 locations nationwide with themes ranging from upscale lounges and bars to swanky billiard clubs.

Nice, but this still doesn't answer the original question of whether the bowling alley in Epi will be a "Lucky Strike".

Any news on Aloft? It looks like there is some activity on that side. There are some supplies in between the 210 storage area and the Aloft base. Could this just be overflow of 210 materials? I remember something about the developer/builder backing out. Has this been resolved?
