What: Cosmos Café in Ballantyne

Vibe: After more than a decade of success in uptown, the owners of Cosmos Café recently opened a new location south of I-485. It's just as ornate as its forbearer, but with some modern upgrades and a suburban twist. The inside features a circular bar, colorful walls, and several flat-screen TVs. There's a spacious patio outside, perfect for listening to the café's up-tempo pop music (think: Rihanna and Black Eyed Peas).

Who's There: Ranging from their twenties to fifties, the crowd is casual. You might find a few in evening attire, but most are dressed in jeans, T-shirts, and sun dresses-with plenty of sandals and flip-flops.

What Sets It Apart: It's bringing popularity to the new Village at Robinson Farm complex, sandwiched between Dan Morgan's Cheese Mo'z (yes, the former Carolina Panther) and Sweet T's Diner. You'll find the same tasty food menu and the martini list Cosmos is known for. And, because this one is in the 'burbs, early in the evening is family friendly while those looking to mingle make an appearance late night.

Where: 8420 Rea Rd., 704-544-5268, cosmoscafe.com.

Hours: Mon-Sat, 4 p.m.-2 a.m.; Sun, 10 a.m.-2 a.m. ">
