If you want a glimpse of old Charlotte architecture and style, a tour through historic Plaza-Midwood neighborhood is a good start. Developed in the 1920s as a streetcar neighborhood, the began its rebirth as a Charlotte hotspot when local residents formed the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association.
This neighborhood is as serious about preserving its character as it is about food, drink and entertainment. Many of the Queen City’s most popular restaurants can be found along the streets of Plaza-Midwood’s including Bistro La Bon, Diamond Restaurant and the Peculiar Rabbit (don’t miss the amazing view of the city from the rooftop). Take in late night at Thomas Street Tavern and Workman’s Friend and when you finally get up the next morning, catch Zada Jane’s for brunch. This classic neighborhood with a classy edge might be just the right place for you.
