Break out of Your Norm with Davidson Street Public House

What do Marcellus Wallace, Gogo Yurabi and Alabama Worley have in common? If you said they’re all characters in Tarantino films you’d be correct.

Additionally, all three can be found on the menu at Davidson Street Public House.

Personality abounds at this NoDa establishment, and owner Chris Healy wouldn’t have it any other way. After years working in South End Healy felt it was time to make a move, and felt NoDa was Charlotte’s ‘Next Big Thing’, so he brought his expertise to the neighborhood.

The result is a spot that stands out while still fitting into an already eclectic hood.

When To Go:

Wednesday nights boast live jazz and a new cocktail creation plus allow you to avoid the rush of the weekend crowds.

Where To Sit:

NoDa is a great hood for people watching any day of the week; the patio and front window seating allow you to do plenty of that. You can’t go wrong at the bar, especially if Frances is working.

What To Drink:

They’re one of the few places I’ve found that always has a selection of sours and/or Goses available so I suggest you take advantage. They have a seasonal cocktail list curated by the incredibly knowledgeable Frances Jones that features **locally-sourced** and homemade ingredients.

If you’re in the mood for wine you can get a great rose (Raimat, Spain) for $8.50/glass but $55 for a bottle of real deal Champagne (Pol Roger, France) is hard to pass up!

What To Eat:

Snow Camp goat cheese - one of many great choices on the cheese list. It has the tartness of goat cheese but the creaminess of brie and best of all it’s local.

Healy says despite not neccesarily being an adventurous eater he’s a big fan of the Braised Oxtail.

If you’re a fan of mussels DSPH’s Free Will Mussels offer a unique twist.

Davidson Street Public House Promotions:

Live music Friday and Saturday nights, live jazz Wednesday nights, trivia Tuesday nights.

Give Davidson Street Public House a try. Break out from the norm and experience a true gem of NoDa and the Queen City!
