Crave Dessert Bar

Savory small plates, including gourmet flatbreads and sliders, and house made dips like pesto & tzatziki, pave the way to Crave Dessert Bar's main attraction—decadent desserts. The bar's sweet treats, which earned it Charlotte's best location for To Die For Desserts in 2012 by Elevate Lifestyle Magazine, include carrot and walnut cupcakes and chocolate fondue with seasonal fruits and marshmallows. Chocolate-swirled cheesecake rests atop a fudge-brown crust, and the red velvet cake, cream-cheese frosting, and toasted pecans of the Scarlet Letter layer cake pay homage to the only foods Nathaniel Hawthorne ate while writing The Scarlett Letter.

To complement the tapas and desserts’ flavors, diners can puff on hookahs in more than 16 fruit varieties, including peach and watermelon. Bartenders craft more than 40 signature cocktails, which make the bar’s photographs and canvases by local artists more and more appealing as evenings progress. The loft's hardwood floors, exposed brick, and comfy chairs and couches accommodate guests until 2 a.m. Tuesday–Sunday, and after 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, the bar transforms into a 21+ hot spot.

Customer Reviews

The slider sampler is a good plate to try the different selections. The beef empanadas were delicious and the spinach and artichoke dip was one if the best I've had. Kayle was our server...loved her spirit!
