“Cute and Upscale Wine Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I met a local friend here for drinks and appetizers one evening. The decor is more upscale but the atmosphere is still very relaxing. Corey was our waiter and he did everything he could to make sure we had a good time. The staff in general was attentive and even the chef came out to explain the dishes we ordered. They take pride in what they prepare. Really enjoyed the wine flights and the cheese plate and shrimp dish were delicious. Will be back next time we are in Charlotte.

“Great relaxing place to have drinks after dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We were staying at the ritz and went up for an after dinner drink. Great relaxed atmosphere. No music the night we were there but enjoyed it none the less. Great scotch selection and reasonable wine list. Nice way to wind down at the end of the evening and very romantic atmosphere.

“Great for after dinner or after the show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This quiet and roomy lounge has an excellent wine selection and a good bar. Their well stocked wine bar uses the nitrogen replacement method to preserve the freshness of the wines. The decor is in keeping with the rest of the hotel, and the views of center city are nice. There is a menu of small plates to munch with your drinks. Great way to spurge for a special occasion or to cap off a special night.

“Nice Place to Hang Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Urban Sip is a great place to hang out if you want to get away from the crowd in the Lobby Lounge. We attended the manager's reception in the evening which featured a nice selection of wine, cheese and charcuterie. We also went back later in the evening after dinner to enjoy live jazz music and a night cap. Very relaxing spot with a wonderful selection of wines and cocktails.
