Tavern coming soon to new hotel in University area

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Golden Owl Tavern is set to open March 31 at the UNC Charlotte Marriott Hotel & Conference Center.

The roughly 7,000-square-foot venue will seat up to 200 at full capacity. It will be part of the $87 million, 226-room hotel at the intersection of North Tryon Street and J.W. Clay Boulevard.

Denver-based Sage Restaurant Concepts is behind the tavern venture. That company operates more than 30 restaurants and bars in 11 states. This is its first restaurant in North Carolina.
