Second Ward

Home / About / Uptown Charlotte / Second Ward

Located in the southeast quadrant of the city, Charlotte’s Second Ward was once dubbed “Brooklyn” by its residents. After a huge renovation, though, the neighborhood took a turn for the chic, becoming the thriving business center it is today. Home to four large Wells Fargo offices and the Charlotte Convention Center, Second Ward is swarming with suits, keeping the city alive with economic excitement.

Of course, ties are optional at most after-work activities. At night, this part of the state’s banking capital becomes a vibrant hub for city-goers. Charlotte’s EpiCenter caters to the 18 and up crowd regularly, often visited for its dueling piano bar, nightclubs, and late-night bowling.

The Green, on the other hand, tells a different story. Keeping pace with seasonal traditions, this center city park hosts plays and concerts in Charlotte’s steamy summer and ice skating, the only outdoor rink in Charlotte, during its mild winter. Flanked by the NASCAR Hall of Fame and New York-loving bistros like FUEL Pizza, people of all ages gather in Second Ward’s center for some of the best entertainment and eatery options available in the city.

Likewise, a dose of heritage can’t be missed in any part of Charlotte, especially Second Ward. St. Peter’s Catholic Church, an 1850s construction, stands as a Victorian Gothic style monument to neighborhood history.

Flash forward to modern architecture, and the neighboring condominiums to this church, the oldest locally with Catholic roots, make for an interesting mix of old and new, modern and retro.

Second Ward, then, seems to prosper on duality. By day, it is a heart of business activity and by night it is busy entertainment venue. Visually appealing and historically rich, this Charlotte quarter gives its residents versatility on a daily basis, making living here an exciting urban experience.
