Bowling may be a fun, albeit cliché, date so why not take things up a notch? Does tossing an axe at a large wooden bullseye seem like a good time to you? Well, The Axe Club of America, formerly Luberjaxe, is Charlotte’s first axe-throwing facility. Lane rentals are $20 an hour and it is in the same building as Catawba Brewing. Nothing screams great first date, or safety, than axes and beer.
Do you love the crackling sound made when you put a record on? If so, head to Lunchbox Records on Central Avenue and look and listen to a wide selection of music available. Buy some new vinyl, grab a bottle of wine, and head home for what will be a date to impress.
Hear us out on this one. While we are not always the biggest fans of the crowds at the Epicentre, especially on the weekends, we do love a fun and inexpensive date. Dueling piano bar, Howl at the Moon, has no cover charge, cheap drinks, and some hysterical and talented musicians able to play your favorite sing-along worthy songs on demand.
Why rewatch the same show you’ve already seen 12 times when you can learn something new at the Charlotte Museum of History? The museum is the steward of the Hezekiah Alexander Homesite, which is the oldest house in Mecklenburg County. When you’re there, the entry fee is $12, check out the Unforgettable Music Venues of Charlotte exhibit, which beautifully and sadly features Charlotte’s lost music venues.
