When does the new Bazal nightclub open in Charlotte, NC?

The highly anticipated opening of Bazal Gallery and Nightclub to AvidXchange Music Factory finally has a date.

Bazal, a concept by QC Social Lounge owner Noi Vong, will open to the public on June 25.

Here’s a look at what guests can expect from Charlotte’s newest nightlife spot:

Atmosphere

  • Bazal is both an art gallery and a nightclub. On the top floor is a bright and modern gallery while on the lower level is a dark and alluring dance floor.

  • The walls of the gallery are adorned with original works of art by local and foreign artists.

  • The nightclub downstairs is dark, stylish and nicely decorated. An intricate and sophisticated lighting system fills the club with a customizable array of strobes and vibrant hues.

Music

  • The music in the upstairs gallery will be deep, “sexy” house, according to Vong. It will be played by a DJ at a comfortable volume to allow guests an atmosphere that promotes intimacy and socializing.

  • The bottom music will be mostly Top 40 and Hip-Hop. Vong hopes to welcome local and global DJs to Bazal.

Drinks

  • The gallery’s beverage menu will include premium liquors, artful cocktails and unique spirits from around the world.

  • The drinks menu downstairs will cater more to partiers – this is where you can order Red Bulls vodka and tequila shots.

  • Guests will be required to adhere to a strict and upscale dress code. Yes, that means no shorts and no flip flops. Sorry, Adam Sandler.
