Charlotte’s downtown area, known locally as Uptown Charlotte, is a social and vibrant metropolis. The city, buzzing with creatives and professionals, is an energizing environment perfect for the discerning professional, foodie, artist or fashionista.

Waking up in Uptown means you have incomparable access to premier coffee at the city's amazing cafes and coffee shops, each with a distinctive atmosphere. A visit to Not Just Coffee on 7th Street means you get to enjoy the best lattes in town or Waterbean Coffee in Tyrone street for a refreshing pick-me-up and excellent selection of sweet treats. Uptown is pet friendly! Love cats, you must visit a couple cat cafes where you can enjoy a coffee, pastry, and maybe even adopt an available cat (or at least pet one while you are there).
