If you've lived in Charlotte for a while, you probably remember Mythos, a popular nighttime hangout in the 1990s and early 2000s. Maybe it was one of your go-to weekend spots.

What's happening: This year marks the 20th anniversary of its closing. To celebrate some of Charlotte's popular underground nightclubs, Mythos co-founder Andy Kastanas, a DJ and restaurateur who also owns Soul Gastrolounge, is hosting a few commemorative events this year.

Details: The latest Mythos reunion takes place tomorrow, at Blackbox Theater — 421 E. Sugar Creek Road, per a statement from Kastanas.

  • Same-day tickets are $30. Red Bull reserved seating area is available for $50. Go here for tickets and more info. Expect live DJs and dancing.

Flashback: Mythos opened in 1993 at 6th and College streets in Uptown. Over the years, the club hosted a range of big names, including Carl Cox, Tiesto, Frankie Knuckles, Danny Tenaglia, Paul Oakenfold and Paul Van Dyk.

  • "These spots cut the path and fueled the growth of the entertainment culture of Charlotte today," Kastanas said of Charlotte's OG nightclubs.
