Our Story

Where It All Began

Friends have called us a Panther’s Game Day ‘gathering place.’ Third Ward neighbors like to call us their local ‘watering hole.’ Our ‘rustic meets industrial’ vibe pays homage to The Foundry building’s history and is the backdrop for two original murals by local artists Matt Hooker and Matt Moore.  We don’t necessarily bill ourselves as a sports bar in uptown Charlotte, but avid sports fans don logo-wear and root for their favorite team on our 27 HDTVs while digging in to our game day menu.

Our mission is simple – “Serve Good Food and Good Drinks to Good People.”

We have lots of craft beers on tap to choose from, daily drink specials for that happy hour get together, seasonal craft cocktails and a wine list that complements our lunch, dinner & late night menus.  Our Saturday and Sunday brunch menus have something for everyone – ‘foodies’ are delighted by our multiple ‘build your own’ options that cater to the whims of even the finickiest eaters! The Mimosa & Bloody Mary bars are a playground of amateur and professional mixologists alike!

Our downstairs, affectionately nicknamed ‘Down-Draught,’ is a warm and inviting spot where we host bands and local talent. It also acts as a private event space that can be reserved for private parties – from birthdays and holidays to corporate events – our space can handle celebrations of all sizes.  Since 2014, Draught was built by friends, for friends. Everyone is welcome. Please join us!

What People are Saying

Panther's Game Day Events Before and After Party

absolutely LOVE this bar/restaurant

I live in the area and absolutely LOVE this bar/restaurant. We walk here at least a couple of times a month. The menu continues to impress. Whether we are doing appetizers to share with the table, craving “bar food” or wanting nice date night meal the menu covers everything! The managers and wait staff provide fast and courteous service. Also, a great place for events….

Wanting a non traditional joint baby shower I decided to rent the downstairs area. The downstairs is quite large and open which was exactly what we needed for the big party. It was perfect all of our friends and family’s to mingle. This venue is definitely a hidden gem for events! Altogether Draught receives five stars from me.

“Threw a party here last night”

“Threw a party here last night for 150 people. We rented out the downstairs and setup food, a photo booth & had the full bar. Everyone was so friendly staff wise. Summer was absolutely on it all night long and Baren (not sure how to spell his name BUT he’s the GM there!) made everything happen… I mean everything! This place is amazing and I would highly recommend it for brunch, lunch, dinner, or a party! They are amazing & go above and beyond.”
