A new place…Delta’s

bar DeltasAfter a tough few weeks, I had a friend get me out after a long business meeting in uptown. We tried a new place neither of us had heard of or tried called Delta’s.

Delta’s, on Tryon Street, was packed at 5:30 pm. When we ventured in we realized quickly it was due to a Bank of America event. Maneuvering among the crowd, we found an empty bar table and planted ourselves. We were quickly informed by the waiter & hostess of the food that would be served soon, spicy wings for all! Unfortunately, it was my meatless day & I couldn’t enjoy Though I quickly learned I wouldn’t try since they weren’t boneless :0

The drink menu was very elaborate & we learned about their specials from a cute & flirtatious bartender:
Monday: All beers are $3, complimentary wings of the world buffet
“Tini” Tuesday: $5 specialty cocktails, $5 select appetizers
Wine Down Wednesday: 1/2 priced Glasses of Wine
“Champagne Room” Thursday: $5 Champagne Cocktails
Sunday: $5 Mimosas, Bellinis, & Bloody Marys

While it was Monday, neither of us was up for beer so cocktails were on the menu! The bartender was great in asking what we normally like & picked out a few drinks we may enjoy. And boy was he right on the $! Mine was on fire before the rest of the drink was strategically poured into the martini glass…oh my was it good! & Strong!

The drinks ordered for the evening:

The Cheetah:
Sweet, refreshing, with a hint of spice to keep you sipping.
Vanilla vodka, ginger root, fresh lime juice, pineapple juice, Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, aromatics & black pepper
Yum if you’re into sweet drinks!

Delta’s Sunshine 2:
There’s fire involved, which is always a good thing.
Light Rum with fresh raspberries, mint, orange, house-made grenadine, and a dash of angostura
Served in a martini glass with flaming Sambuca

Great presentation & will knock you off your rocker!

Being the carb lover that I am, I of course had to order some sides: fried mac & cheese & mashed potatoes topped with hot sauce. Oh my…authentic southern style & presented in sophisticated dinner ware. Finger licking good!

The atmosphere was great…the who’s of who of Charlotte were mingling & a great place for singles! In addition, jazz is played on several nights during the week and weekends.
A great place I hope to try again for fun/dinner soon!
