We’re inherently drawn to restaurants and brands and businesses that are looking to change the game, that take something familiar, and beloved, and reinvent it. We love this approach to business and life because it’s what we did when we started Alton Lane. Soul Gastrolounge in Charlotte is one of our favorite places to eat in Queen City because of its unique twists and updates on old favorites.
As the name implies, Soul blends the best parts of a gastronomic experience and a lounge. Small plates and an intimate vibe make it the perfect place for a date. DJ’s start every night of the week at 9 p.m.
Soul makes some pretty spectacular cocktails. The Cucumber Mule, (Absolut vodka, fresh cucumber juice, fresh ginger, lime, sugar) is a must for our Charlotte folks and the Smash and Grab (Bulleit Bourbon, fernet branca, fresh squeezed orange juice, meyer lemon juice, basil, mint) is a favorite.
Our Charlotte Showroom staff always order the Asian glazed pork belly tacos & the fried brussel sprouts when they’re planning a night out at the Soul Gastrolounge after a day at the showroom. We recommend a few Cucumber Mules before or after your next appointment.
