CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 16, 2017) – Corkbuzz Restaurant and Wine Studio in SouthPark today announced its sister concept, The Cellar @ Corkbuzz, opens directly next door today. A casual wine bar offering with a separate small plates menu and wine retail, The Cellar, located in Sharon Square behind Whole Foods, complements the original full service Corkbuzz restaurant.
"Whether you’re a novice or an expert, we want you to mingle, drink, laugh and indulge," said Corkbuzz Owner and Master Sommelier Laura Maniec. "This is the place to meet up with your best friends and make new ones."
The well-designed, intimate setting, just 850 square feet, features six 4-tops, bar seating and three TVs. Also available for wine dinners and private parties, the space can accommodate up to 60.
"In addition to a great wine retail selection with an expert staff, we’re offering wine profiles to help guests better understand and articulate their wine preferences," said Maniec. "The exercise, that takes about 45 minutes and costs $25, arms you with a wine cheat sheet that will prove handy in restaurant ordering and retail purchasing situations."
While The Cellar shares a patio and kitchen with Corkbuzz, the small plates menu is different. However, Corkbuzz favorites such as The Bourguignon Burger and Goat Cheese Dumplings can be found at both.
