Good Eats

You guessed it… they have TAPAS, in the style of American-Asian food. Recess Charlotte describes their food as “American food with an Asian twist”. You’ll find everything from traditional bar food to experimental cuisine.

Some examples from their menu include:

  • Sliders
  • Tacos
  • Flatbread
  • Bar snacks


We did some research and found out that Recess Charlotte will meet all your favorite local craft beer needs!



  • Local craft beer on tap from breweries
  • Bottled beer (imported and domestic)
  • Cocktails and mixed drinks


Although Recess Charlotte is family friendly during the day, it’s mainly designed to be a place for adults to go out and have fun at, without having to go to a club or bar. It is a place for adults to go to for pure fun and play, while enjoying their favorite drafts or mixed drinks.

Owner, Markus Hunter said that he envisions locals in the neighborhood walking and/or riding their bikes over after work, to just have a drink and blow off steam (CLT Nightlife).
