First trip to Morehead Street Tavern can be a bit perplexing. The driveway can be easily missed and parking is limited around back. Upon entering the front door, one suddenly seems whisped into a bygone era of resplendent drinking establishments. The heavily wooden motif found throughout the cavernous interior, suggests that they were sodden in fine cognacs and smooth, scotch whiskeys. This haven of spirits certainly has a "Cheersesque" demeanor. The layout is simple and brilliant. There are three distinct areas, each having its own purpose. The first is "the bar." Several pub-style tables greet you as you sally up to order a drink. Stepping through an open-way to the right, this small tavern opens to a more cavernous dining area with tables, booths, and even a romantic sofa seating area. Beyond this threshold lie two billiard tables, a game area, and more seating. Centrally traversing all of this, your gaze is drawn toward the floor as banisters and balusters envelop a balcony view of a parqueted dance floor below.Stairs from here descend, a set in the bar wind down, and an outside entrance gives way to a whole other level awaiting discovery. On Wednesday and Saturday nights, the floor is filled with those gyrating to beats of Salsa and Latin music.
Now I have only eaten two different appetizers from the kitchen. I highly recommend the prime rib chunks served in a delicious Roquefort cream sauce. The hot wings (my personal favourite) are the best that I've had in Charlotte, to this date. I know that I should try the rest of the menu, but I just cannot seem to let go of those wings. The prices are very reasonable for the portions you receive.My biggest complaint is there seems to be a more "coarse" patronage stymieing the later hours of the evening. Hey... "It's a bar..." there's going to be the occasional shoving match and porcelain worship, but the last three outings produced incidences of concern. The first was a scuffle that nearly caused me to spill my beer. Next, I was solicited for money, which was the 2nd time this had happened here. Once on the sidewalk in front of the bar and again inside while I was engrossed in a virtual putt for birdie on Pinehurst's No. 2. Go to work people!! Lastly, I walked out to discover that a couple of vehicles had their window's smashed in. Glass was everywhere. The cops were nowhere.
I hope this is the exception and not the trend. I will continue to eat and drink here, but if a new sheriff is not found soon, I may have to find another saloon.
