Falderal Winery welcomes guests into the oak-study tasting room twice a month to expound upon the scientific miracle of fermentation. Instructor and vintner Paul Kovacich, a native of the terroir of western North Carolina, wields his experience at Thistle Meadow Winery to aid the public during fermented endeavors. Paul's class covers the winemaking process, from the addition of yeast to bottling to making labels out of cartoons from the New Yorker. Reservations are recommended, as the winery caps classes at eight students.

At an hour when many bars and restaurants are busy closing up shop, Dream Nightclub lights up as a beacon to nocturnal wanderers from across the city. Custom-designed graffiti murals, pulsing LED lights, and energetic dance beats greet patrons as soon as they enter the after-dark dancehall and performance venue. The 5,000-square-foot club features ample lounge seating for bottle service or dramatically lit staring contests, as well as two bars and a full-service kitchen that churns out plates laden with chicken wings and french fries as late as 2:30 a.m. on most nights. A QSC sound system floods the dance floor with Latin, techno, or hip-hop tunes depending on the day, although the club also hosts occasional DJ sets and regular jazz-band performances.

Sankey's is the resident restaurant taproom and restaurant of Custom Home Pubs, which means the owners have years of experience building draft beer systems. They extend this knowledge to Sankey's with a rotating roster of 10 North Carolina beers on tap, but also accompany their drinks with a menu of hearty pub-grub. Texas caviar, crispy wings, and a host of burgers and sandwiches are served in a dining room filled with beer-themed artwork, from local labels to impressionist paintings of keg stands.

Jimmy and Steve DaPolito run Bisonte Pizza Co. And their 40 years of combined experience in the pizza business underscore its credibility as an Italian dining destination. They even use a special sauce that's been in the family for years. But beyond preparing their specialty pies, the two oversee a menu of wings, sub sandwiches, and salads.

Q&A with the Owner

Has your business won any awards?
Muddy River competed in The Big Sip Cup Drink Expo in Greensboro, North Carolina. We won Best Spirits in 2012 and 2013, first overall in 2013, and 2nd overall in 2012 to beat out many other breweries, wineries, coffee, and tea.
We also won Best Locally Made Spirit in the Best of Charlotte Awards by "Creative Loafing" Magazine in October 2013.

Do you adhere to any sustainable or eco-friendly practices?
Yes—Muddy River Distillery recycles the water used to cool down our stills to make our mash. We're glad we can reuse the water and not waste it.
