Charlotte offers a world-class variety of dance clubs. From country to all 1980s hits, you can find plenty of great dance floors here – no matter your taste in dance styles. – Steve Hartsoe

The Forum

300 North College Street
Charlotte, N.C. 28202

Featuring a roof garden oasis, The Forum is one of Charlotte’s most artsy dance clubs. This popular attraction features raised platforms, banquette seating, a large outdoor patio, and a mezzanine that allows patrons to overlook the action on the dance floor below. One of the highlights of The Forum is the reserved private seating, which lets you watch the excitement but keep some distance from the crowd for those times when you just want to watch rather than be in the mix. Hours vary.

Coyote Joe’s

Charlotte, N.C. 28208

If boot-scootin’ good times are your thing, you can’t beat Coyote Joe’s. Providing world-class country entertainment and dancing since 1991, Coyote Joe’s is a private club that guarantees the good times will roll. A massive dance floor, state-of-the art light and sound system, and live music nightly make this a premiere nightclub in Charlotte.

Breakfast Club

At Breakfast Club, the music and excitement is all about this magical decade. Breakfast Club features three levels of fun in Uptown Charlotte. The environment here is relaxed and pressure-free.
