No-one Parties Like the Irish

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

Private Party & Corporate Event Spaces

Tired of stuffy restaurants or impersonal hotels for your social activities? With a series of interlocking spaces set over 2 floors including a rooftop patio, and no room fees, Rí Rá Irish Pub in Uptown Charlotte is the ideal setting for every kind of party or event, whether it is with family & friends or a corporate event.

We have multiple flat screen TV’s. There are also stages both 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 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.

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 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

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 75 people.

Our adjoining Whiskey Room can also be reserved for parties of up to 35 people (seated). The entire top floor, excluding the Patio, can accommodate up to 110 people seated. 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 38 people.
