I live within cycling distance of Plaza Midwood. It's a great little neighborhood - Central Avenue just northeast of the Metropolitan area serves as the heart of the place. There's a strip of vintage retail buildings filled with restaurants, shops, bars, and more. Plaza Midwood is home to some of Charlotte's best nights out; Soul Gastrolounge, Bistro La Bon, and Midwood Smokehouse are all within walking distance of each other. If you're interested in a cocktail with that food, look no further than Workman's Friend or Peculiar Rabbit (the Rabbit is also a great place to watch a game with your friends!). If you're more interested in a beer and some music, hit up Thomas Street Tavern or Legion Brewing.
Plaza Midwood is also home to a fantastic little library, the site of the original Harris Teeter (done over just a few years ago into a multi-level grocery experience), and host to a paint-and-sip studio, a used bookstore, and so much more.
