 RSVP South End is a nightclub that offers options for everyone in the friend group.

The new concept, located across from Fairwood 226, opens Friday, Jan. 20.

What’s happening: RSVP South End is a one-stop shop with four different event spaces in one. The acronym for RSVP is a description of each space: rooftop, stage, veranda and parlor.

  • Co-owner Scott Jermyn says they strategically placed RSVP further away from the majority of bars and nightlife options in South End to provide an escape.
  • The Assistant General Manager of RSVP South End, Katie Beltran, tells us the different options will allow you to make the most of your night.
  • “There’s an option to not have to debate about different things. At RSVP you can have a cocktail and discuss where the night will go.” Beltran explains.

The vibe: Each space has a different mood that allows you to feel like you are in an entirely separate venue. 

  • Rooftop: The top floor has views to create the perfect atmosphere for a nightcap and new conversations.
  • Stage: This space provides an exclusive club experience with VIP options including a special entrance.
  • Veranda: The two-part outdoor space with a rooftop allows you to “vacation from the average South End brewery,” according to Beltran.   
  • Parlor: This section is located on the first floor and is designed to be an approachable elevated bar where you can ideally start the night. 

Menu: Signature drink options vary within the four spaces to cater to each distinct vibe. 

  • Rooftop features five signature cocktails with a vodka and tequila base.
  • Stage has craft cocktails and draft beers options. 
  • Veranda will have a frozen drink machine along with a small plate food menu.
  • Parlor offers a wide variety of bourbon and whiskey options.

The design: RSVP also features work from local business owners and artists to give an Instagrammable experience. 

  • Beltran tells us they worked with local artists like Kyle Mosher to paint murals and Plant House for a refreshing greenery aesthetic. “Charlotte has so much to offer so we want to incorporate what so many people are bringing to the city,” said Beltran.

Details: Rooftop, Stage and Veranda will be open to the public Wednesday to Sunday. 

  • Parlor will open daily.  
  • Beltran says there are also options for people to rent out the spaces for events.
