5 Church

Map127 N. Tryon St.
Charlotte, NC 28202
  • Food


Since opening three years ago, 5Church has revitalized a strip of Fifth Street in uptown with its innovative American menu and craft cocktails. The restaurant has won numerous awards, drawn lots of celebrity diners, and its bar is just as much of a hot spot nearing close as it is at 8 p.m.—especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
