Rooftop Bar Spotlight: Merchant & Trade in Uptown Charlotte


We recently checked out Merchant & Trade, the newest rooftop bar in Uptown, and highly recommend it. It’s the perfect place to grab a drink while friends are in town for Thanksgiving.

It is located at the Kimpton Tryon Park hotel at the corner of Third and Church streets in Uptown. Its 19th floor view of the skyline, Romare Bearden Park and the Charlotte Knights’ BB&T Ballpark makes it an incredible atmosphere for a date night or a place to meet friends for a night out. In addition to a full cocktail menu, there are delicious food options if you’d like to try an appetizer or enjoy dinner while you’re there. Of the many creative cocktails on the bar menu, we’d recommend giving the Oh Clementine cocktail a try. It is just sweet enough without being syrupy, and comes garnished with a clementine wedge on the rim of the cocktail glass.

The atmosphere can’t be beat, with high-end swanky decor and comfortable lounge furniture. From the second you step onto the private elevator to take you to the rooftop, to the last sip of your custom cocktail, it will be an experience in Charlotte you’re bound to remember.
