I seriously cannot believe that it has been over a month since DG and I visited Charlotte for his birthday weekend. I need to give you full disclosure, I still haven’t made the man a cake, that’s how hectic our lives have been this year. Our amazing date night at City Lights and Evoke at the Le Méridien Charlotte more than made up for it, though! We had the best time taking in the gorgeous view of the skyline from City Lights, and turning up the swankiness at EVOke for dinner.
City Lights Rooftop is the best place to have cocktails in Charlotte. DG and I loved the view and the drink selection was impressive. I tried the sparkle and pop with prosecco and it was the best cocktail for a warm afternoon on the rooftop! I loved the attention to detail, both on the menu and with the decor, including the market lights and the beautiful planters around the patio.
For dinner, we headed downstairs to the uber swanky Evoke. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Our server gave us great recommendations, and DG and I both ended up ordering the filet plus truffle pomme frites. I loved that the meal came with various seasonings to try with our entree. Evoke is truly a space to evoke your senses from the decor to the menu selection and the options to season the food to your specific liking. We were blown away with our meal and completely stuffed when we left.
What I Wore
I wore a short sleeve sweater from ZIA Boutique paired with my favorite booties and black jeans. I accessorized my look with my favorite pair of Sheila Fajl hoops, Twine & Twig necklace, tote from Nordstrom, Bourbon and Boweties bangles, David Yurman bangle, Ray-Ban aviators, and of course, Lincoln Park After Dark on my nails.
Have you ever been to City Lights Rooftop or Evoke in Charlotte? I cannot recommend these spots enough for the ultimate date night while in the city. We actually met friends for drinks who were in town from Buffalo and they fell in love with the two spots as well.
I hope you had a great weekend! Be sure to link up with Biana and me for Weekending!
