It’s officially February and we’re putting a twist on feature friday and going outside the neighborhood. This week we’re talking about a little hidden gem placed perfectly in the middle of Charlotte’s major neighborhoods, Camp North End.
This 76-acre historical site known for once making army missiles and Model Ts is now home to 31 different tenants from art galleries to coffee shops. The moment you step out of the car you realize you’re somewhere special. Once you’re done gazing up at the giant water tower, the old warehouses immediately catch your eye, covered in bright, incredible murals. Fire pits and plenty of seating are scattered throughout the Boileryard (including 2 giant tire swings!).
Camp North End really knows how to put on some great events as well. Head out to the Boileryard on Friday nights (March-October) for live music, drinks from NoDa Canteen, and a great time with friends. The first Saturday of each month (March-October) you can also head to Morning Markets from 9am-1pm. Besides the steady events, you can check out their event calendar for tons of different ideas for a night out. Think anything from food classes to art galleries (rumor has it that Paint Along with Bob Ross will be back for Valentines Day this year).
If you’re looking to step out of South End for a bit and have a truly unique experience, we highly recommend planning a night in the Boileryard! March can’t get here quick enough.
