Whether live or DJ - are various genres of music represented in Charlotte's music scene? One of the things my husband and I enjoy about where we live now is the abundance of different bars/clubs/lounges or outdoor spaces in the summer that play various types of music: jazz, live bands at lounges playing 80s, pop, etc., reggae bands, clubs playing dance music, etc. Does Charlotte offer a good variety of these and other types of music scenes?

We went to the Cork Screw Friday night with friends and they had live music, they were good but it was too loud for that place. I was trying to have some wine and a converstion and I had to scream over them.

Charlotte doesn't have much nightlife but that isn't why people move there anyway. Check out Creative Loafing if you want to know what's going on.

That's funny - there seems to be a lot of nightlife options...

I guess that it depends on what you consider nightlife but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who considers CLT a trend setting city.

Not necessarily looking for "trendsetting". I'm no longer much into the "seen and be seen" thing anymore, just wanting to know if there are options if you just want to go have a cocktail and listen to some music or just get out for a night in a nice, upscale, bar/lounge atmosphere. From what I've been able to learn online it seems like Charlotte has at least that much in the way of nightlife.

Any 30-somethings have any comments?

Oh, also are there any restaurants or bars that have outdoor/patio seating during the spring/summer months?

Nah all of the above is wrong, ha-ha, no disrespect folks, a 30-something does have a comment.
for the 80th misic: Tempo and Breakfast Club
best hip-hop club: NV on lake Norman if you don't mind the fake Dj
(Dont' even try to go to the Forum, spare yourself your descency)
I'll give you some more hip hop but with a disclaimer.
Eden is best for Euro trance and such, if that is what you like, sometimes Scorpio and Velocity have some Major events...well because they are large, ok, they can accomodate a crowd for Tiesto, other than that they are known as gay clubs... which is not true anymore since they shut down Mythos and that crowd had to go somewhere, and other changes,
Best country club is Coyote Joe's.
Amos has plenty of live music, kind of modern rock of wich I know the least but there's been some celebrities play there.
In NoDa Neighborhood Theater has some serios reggie and funk legends to play, it is a little on the hippy side if you ask me, but, well, it depends.
