Home to department store magnate William Henry Belk, the Elizabeth neighborhood features Charlotte’s first neighborhood movie theater, The Visulite, which thrives today as a popular nightspot featuring live music nightly. New shops, upscale restaurants and revitalization along Elizabeth Avenue have created a trendy Charlotte, NC hot spot that attracts visitors to the Elizabeth community, including the CityLYNX Gold Line Streetcar which brings riders to Uptown in just minutes.
As Trade Street comes out of Uptown it turns into Elizabeth Avenue where you’ll find a trendy assortment of restaurants as well as live entertainment venues including Carpe Diem, Luca/Modern Italian Kitchen, Earl’s Grocery, Viva Chicken and more. This area is also home to some of Charlotte’s top hospitals and medical centers including Novant Health, Carolinas Medical Center and OrthoCarolina.
Another happening Elizabeth district appears as you move down 7th Street away from Uptown where historic homes have been converted into a lively assortment of shops and restaurants. Here you will find such notable Charlotte eateries as Cajun Queen (with rooftop dining), The Fig Tree Restaurant, Sunflour Bakery and Kennedy’s.
Timbre 6 is also located within walking distance to one of Charlotte’s major landmarks, The Mint Museum of Art. Located on Randolph Road, the Mint Museum is full of rich history as well as unbelievable art and artifacts that attract visitors from all over the greater Charlotte area.
Pair these neighborhood features with its highly acclaimed schools – Eastover Elementary, Alexander Graham Middle and Myers Park High School – and you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to call home.
