This place is so cute! It's a very little bar but also has a downstairs that was not available while we were there. The staff is great and the decor is so nice. We will be coming back when we are in the area.

I don't like the hustle and bustle of the main lobby bar or the bars across the street. Since they have added a TV to Urban Sip this is my new spot to relax after a long day of work.

Both Matt and Corey in the lounge are amazing. Corey is typically behind the bar and Matt is the chef. Both are a wealth of knowledge and extremely helpful. This is one of the best kept secrets in Charlotte. I will go here even if I am not staying in the hotel.

We just stumbled upon this bar and we enjoyed it greatly. They had a really great DJ, better than the one we payed a cover to see previously that night. The bartender was really nice also. Great prices on drinks.

The Urban Sip bar and lounge is a great place to hang out before you go out on the town! The view is spectacular of uptown Charlotte! The drinks are cold, the music is lounge, and the customer service is A+!! (drink prices are $7 bucks and up so be prepared)You can get just about any reserve bottle of wine,... More

Amazing wine selection, great views....perfect for after a show. Everything was magnificent about the atmosphere. The staff out did themselves to accommodate our party. Excellence, as usual!

My significant other and I scored a 2 seater right by the window. Beautiful scenery and a beautiful view love was in the air. This is definitely a place to take that special someone if you want your night to continue. I ordered a glass of Far Niente and it didn't take long before we summoned for the check... Worth... More

This place is the best wine bar I have ever been to. They have a ridiculously huge list of wines by the glass. Additionally, the view is perfect and it's never really all that crowded.
