Whiskey and cocktail bar to open in South End

CHARLOTTE — Dram & Draught’s first Charlotte location is in the works.

That whiskey-focused bar has snagged a 2,800-square-foot space at Vantage South End. That $300 million project includes two 11-story office towers and encompasses 635,000 square feet.

Dram & Draught will feature more than 300 whiskeys from around the world, hand-crafted cocktails and mocktails, draft beer and an international wine list. It will have a corner patio at South Tryon and Catherine streets.

Drew Schenck and Kevin Barrett founded that concept in Raleigh in 2016. It offers a relaxing atmosphere with a neighborhood feel.
