The biggest party in Charlotte happens at All American Pub every time the Panthers play. The tall boys are flowing, the pool hall is bumping, and the dance parties during commercial breaks will get you hooked on game day.

5. Thirsty Beaver Saloon 1225 Central Ave, Charlotte, NC 28204 (Plaza Midwood)

Set in a boxy, orange cinderblock building next to the railroad tracks, this small bar with the giant beaver in a cowboy hat painted on its wall doesn’t look like much from the outside. But “The Beaver,” as locals affectionately call it, is a country bar with more character than most. Owned by two brothers, it’s filled with honky-tonk trinkets and colorful patrons who come for the free jukebox, live music, and cheap drinks. On Sunday afternoons you see crowds gathering -- often arriving by motorcycle -- for live bands and relaxing on the small front deck.

6. Selwyn Avenue Pub Selwyn Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28209 (Myers Park)

With its polo shirts and pastels, the crowd here can at times feel a little like an adult fraternity party -- especially on summer weekends. But the tree-shaded deck and flowing drink specials at this neighborhood spot have made it a longtime favorite for locals looking for a place to mingle over cold drinks. Much of the bar is outside, so go when the weather is good, but anticipate booze-filled crowds.

9. Hattie's Tap & Tavern 2918 The Plaza, Charlotte, NC 28205

Fans of craft beer, giant Jenga, and golden retrievers, alike, call this dive a stand-out favorite. The expansive covered patio is neon graffiti-clad and dog friendly, offering side-walk chalk, corn hole, and various other lawn games for those not steady-handed enough for Jenga. Each of these affairs is best enjoyed with one of Hattie's 24 rotating beers on tap (most of which are North Carolina brews), or a mixed drink from the fully-stocked bar (try the Moscow mule, made with beet kombucha). With weekly events ranging from bingo and karaoke nights to live musical performances, both you and your dog will have little reason to drink elsewhere.
