In the past decade, golfing for fun has transformed from the childhood favorite "putt putt" into boozy outings at Top Golf. The trendy adult activity continues to face more competition with mini golf in Charlotte upping its game. Drive Shack is opening a new location soon and it will have everything you need for a good time.
Drive Shack is an indoor adult playground with golf bays, tons of games, yummy bites and a full bar with all the alcohol you'd want to drink. Orlando marks the first city to welcome the entertainment space. Since the Florida opening in 2018, Drive Shack has expanded to Raleigh, Richmond and West Palm Beach.
Business must be doing well in North Carolina because a new spot will likely be opening in Charlotte's South End. According to Biz Journals, the golf entertainment venue has filed permits with the city.
The current locations house private bays and a 200-yard field, but this location will be an "Urban Box" concept that focuses more on tech-enhanced experiences.
The prospective property cannot accommodate a full-sized venue, so this all-new mini golf experience will occupy around 20,000 square feet.
If the permits are approved, you can expect to find plenty of games like foosball, basketball and air hockey.
Other locations currently offer immersive augmented reality experiences including Black Jack, darts and "Monster Hunt," so you can anticipate similar concepts at the new Charlotte spot as well.
You can release your inner child-like wonder while throwing back some cotton candy cocktails or botanical garden-inspired libations.
In addition to unique signature cocktails, you can load up on margs, Bloody Mary's, mimosas, beer and wine.
You'll also find bar food with a twist, including several varieties of dips, wings, tacos, flatbreads, bowls, burgers, and even charcuterie boards (if you're feeling fancy).
Hopefully, soon you'll be able to ditch the dive bars and party in the place that lets grown-ups be kids.
