JP Charlotte’s fresh, lively space engages guests and locals alike in the heart of the hotel. New American cuisine with hints of local flair pair perfectly with a carefully curated bar program. Modern takes on classics—including buttermilk fried yardbird, giant wild shrimp and grits, and fries hand-cut to order—are complemented by a vibrant selection of world-class wines.
Pause in our lobby for drinks amidst the innovative, vibrant, and sophisticated SoCo Bar, awash in sunlight during the day and buzzing with an energy that cannot be compared. Decompress and switch gears as you enjoy a cocktail and light bite amidst the sleek pillars of this modern retreat, with the serene sounds of our soothing waterscape. Try a seasonal cocktail, or sample from the impressive lineup of martinis, wine, single-malt scotches, small-batch bourbons, tequilas, and microbrews alongside a selection from our well-calibrated menu as you admire the views of Uptown through floor-to-ceiling windows.
Among the SoCo Bar's signature menu items are our brick-oven flatbreads, with an array of delicious toppings to choose from, and tantalizing snacks like buffalo wings or fresh tuna tacos. Our refreshing Caesar Salad is served with crisp romaine hearts, cherry tomatoes, and aged parmesan. On game days, Carolina Panther fans frequently request the Certified Angus Beef Burger, an eight-ounce patty served with Yukon golden French fries. Guests at SoCo Bar can select from the full range of options offered on JP Charlotte's all-day dining menu.
Low lighting and subdued music entice you to relax and make yourself comfortable amidst ample seating options, ideal for groups of all sizes. SoCo Bar has multiple TVs so guests can stay up-to-date with the big game or breaking news.
Energize for the day ahead with a freshly brewed coffee from SoCo Café, conveniently located in the lobby. We proudly brew Starbucks® coffee and also offer refreshing juice drinks, delicious baked goods, and more.
