The Arts District/NoDa
From Mill Village to Art District, NoDa is now the entertainment hub of Charlotte.
With humble beginnings as a mill village for textile workers, NoDa (short for North Davidson Street) has gone through many changes over the past twenty years. Once known as the Arts District due to the number of artists and galleries who moved into the area, NoDa has morphed into an eclectic neighborhood teeming with restaurants, bars, and various fun and funky businesses. NoDa is historic, hipster and happening all at once.
Insider Tips: Why wait for the weekend for brunch? During the week you can eat brunch at Haberdish. Get a bartender’s choice cocktail at Idlewild, tasty yet potent sangria from NoDa Company Store, doughnuts from Reigning Doughnuts, coffee from Smelly Cat Coffee, and a delicious date night meal from Crepe Cellar. Head to NoDa Yoga to work off all your meals, and take the Lynx light rail to commute to Uptown for work.
