CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is expanding, with another location set to open in south Charlotte next year.
According to Northwood Investors LLC, Old Meck will anchor The Bowl at Ballantyne. In the announcement, officials said the new location will be the largest brewery concept in south Charlotte, with almost 14,000 square feet of indoor space, a 7,000-square-foot patio dining area and a second-level mezzanine balcony.
Olde Meck’s new location is part of the larger Ballantyne Reimagined Project, which will be situated behind the Ballantyne Hotel.
The Bowl will be Ballantyne’s new living room, kitchen and concert hall, “filling the gap between work and home with opportunities for culinary exploration, shopping, entertainment and healthy living,” a news release stated.
Organizers said the new development, set to open in 2023, will be a walkable, 24-hour, mixed-use neighborhood focused on culture, food, community and sustainability.
“There is no better anchor tenant for The Bowl at Ballantyne than The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery,” said Jonathan Stewart, vice president of leasing at Northwood Retail. “When it comes to the local craft beer scene, OMB started it all and having an award-winning brewery plant its flag in south Charlotte sets the stage for all the exciting food and beverage offerings to come.”
