No-one Parties Like the Irish

We may not have invented the “Party”, but here at Rí Rá Charlotte in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, we sure have perfected it.

The Downstairs Pub

Perfect for those informal gatherings

In the beautiful relaxed surroundings of a bar built from salvaged materials and under the watchful gaze of St. Patrick, the Victorian bar is the prefect space for informal gatherings and after work drinks. With seating at high top tables and bar stools to cozy up to the bar-tender this space can hold up to 60 people.

Spaces

Tired of stuffy restaurants or impersonal hotels for your social activities? Then Rí Rá Irish Pub in Uptown Charlotte is the perfect space to hold your next event. Be it family, friends or business colleagues, “the Craic will be mighty”.

We also have a variety of options to meet your entertainment and Audio/Visual needs. We have multiple flat screen TV’s on which we can run your slide shows or play your videos. There is also a stage upstairs and downstairs, we can set up a band, a DJ, maybe Karaoke or even host a pub quiz for your group. Should you need help finding or booking a band or DJ, we can do that too!

The Whiskey Room

Perfect for smaller groups

The Whiskey Room, decked in copper and soft lighting, features one of the most extensive ranges of Irish whiskeys in Charlotte, including a number of rare bottles you’ll find only at Rí Rá. The whole experience is a treat for both the whiskey aficionados and those new to Irish whiskey. The Whiskey Room is perfect for smaller groups, something more impromptu, or those seeking a truly unique atmosphere and experience. To accompany the whiskey collections there is an extensive draft selection consisting of both local and import beers. The space can be used privately or shared. AV facilities include a drop down screen, projector, wireless mic and dedicated audio.

The Music Room

Need more space?

Show posters of famous and infamous bands adorn the walls, making this a unique space for your event. Featuring a stage and a DJ booth the music room is perfect for larger occasions, with seating for up to 50 people or over 150 standing.

Our adjoining Whiskey Room can also be reserved for larger parties of up to 300 people. The entire top floor, including the Patio, can accommodate up to 400 people. AV facilities include a wireless microphone, dedicated audio, stage lighting, and a drop-down screen & projector for presentations or slide shows.

The Patio

For those who enjoy the outdoors

Nestled amongst the skyscrapers that make Charlotte the banking capital of the south, this hidden gem of a patio will delight, whether for after work drinks, dining al fresco or summer time soirees. Seating for up to 30 people, high tops crafted from whiskey barrels and space for up to 100 people for a more informal event make this the perfect outdoor event space. A dedicated audio system is available.
