Elizabeth is in Charlotte.

Do

  • Visulite Theater, 1615 Elizabeth Ave., +1 704 358-9200, [1]. Long-lived movie theater-turned-music house on Elizabeth Ave. near Uptown. Hosts a variety of acts, and is well-reputed as one of the city's most intimate atmospheres.
  • Lava Lounge, 1420 Elizabeth Ave., +1 704 376-3347. Tue-Thurs 8PM-2AM, Fri-Sat 8PM-4AM. By far the hippest place to go for post-dance chillout. This is literally a lounge, though the small dance floor is often quite active. DJs play a diverse array of music while hookah smoke floats in front of live candles. A very low-key, exotic vibe. Cover charged only after 2am on Fri. and Sat. ($5).
