Originally built in 1958 as the Charlotte Fire Station on South Blvd, this historic building is undergoing a remarkable transformation into a unique restaurant that will undoubtedly add life and vibrancy to Charlotte. We are creating a large, full-service bar with an inset fire circle, cleverly utilizing the former parking space of the fire department’s ladder truck. This stunning feature will be open to the interior restaurant seating housed within the building’s former garage. To provide a delightful dining experience, operable glass doors along the South Blvd side will allow for an indoor/outdoor ambiance whenever the weather permits. Additionally, we’ve added a spacious covered patio to the side of the building, offering even more outdoor seating options.
