Legion Brewing opened their brand new restaurant and taproom last week in the SouthPark neighborhood of Charlotte, NC. There has been a lot of excitement and anticipation for the newest brewery location. The actual building two-story building is located just behind the Piedmont Tower Center across from the Harris YMCA Express. The wood ceiling, walls, and brewery tanks give create an inviting atmosphere for customers. I really liked the attention to detail in the decor. Their restaurant area resembled a inviting home-like atmosphere that complimented their farm-to-table menu options.
The downstairs area of the location contains a taproom and full service restaurant. While I did not try their food, the large pretzels and dips were very popular. They offer a large selection of Legion beers along with some wine options. I also saw other local beers available in cans. The upstairs area contains a smaller bar with plenty of space for mingling. There is a back room behind the upstairs bar for private parties and general use.
A great outdoor patio circles the building for customers to enjoy. They had a few corn hole games setup for general use. I did not see anyone serving drinks or food outside. All of the customers outside had to go inside to order drinks at the taproom bar. The restaurant was very crowded and on a wait for a table. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of staff running the bars and serving in the restaurant area. The place looked well prepared for serving a large crowd. Once they have a grand opening in October, I would like to go back and try some of their food options. You should definitely stop by Legion Brewing's newest location next time you visit the SouthPark area. You will not be disappointed.
