Imagine a bar filled with pirate-themed decor, a beer fridge cluttered with stickers and a live music band playing 12 inches from your stool, and you’ve imagined the Snug Harbor. This hipster hangout sheds all the pretension that often goes along with Plaza Midwood, instead promotes community and camaraderie – and not just because the crowds are packed shoulder-to-shoulder most evenings. The Harbor hosts local bands of every genre, from neo-grunge to pop, and also offers weekly music specials. ‘Knockturnal’ features the best of underground hip hop and electronic artists, and ‘Bone Snugs-N-Harmony’ karaoke is a fantastic night to spend among friends. This venue is 18 and over except during the ‘Shiprocked’ D.J. set on Thursday’s, which is 21 and over.
Snug Harbor, 1228 Gordon St, Charlotte, NC, (704) 561-1781
