The team behind 5Church (Alejandro Torio, Patrick Whalen and Top Chef Alum Executive Chef, Jamie Lynch) have joined up with Charleston Master Mixologist and Sommelier Patricia Smith to open a luxurious cocktail bar, Sophia’s Lounge, on the ground level of the upscale The Ivey’s Hotel on 5th Street in the heart of Uptown Charlotte.
Named after Queen Charlotte, the proprietors describe the gorgeous space as, “opulence meets a vintage, artsy touch and vibrant European flair.” Each of the sections in the lounge are named after one of Queen Sophia’s daughters and is unique in style.
The drinks menu features beer, wine, and specialty cocktails, such as the Higher Education, and the food menu highlights small plate options, such as Lamb Tartare and Butter Poached Clams.
The elegant vibe makes it a comfortable place for a romantic date or a relaxing night enjoying food and drinks with friends.
