The basement level is due to open soon ...
The newest addition of Duckworth's Grill & Taphouse opened in March in uptown. But the giant eatery at Tryon and 7th Streets with tons of TV's, drafts, and food is about to get even bigger.
Technically two venues, Duckworth's will open the cellar portion of the eatery within the next few weeks, creating a 15,000 sq ft space between the "typical" Duckworth's and the new, basement-level restaurant. A smaller menu, speakeasy feel, specialty cocktails, and rare beer choices will make for a more intimate setting when compared to the amiable sports bar feel of Duckworth's. The eatery is currently hiring for servers.
The Cellar at Duckworth's, as it will be called, is on the lower level of the uptown space with only 77 seats available. There are no TV's, a rustic atmosphere, a large walk-in cooler featuring special release and hard-to-find beers, plus a separate beer bar rotating rarer brews.
In an interview with Charlotte magazine's Matt McKenzie, owner Rob Duckworth said, he's been “wanting to do something around an obscure beer bar for some time." The space will have its own executive chef with small plates and charcuterie among other dishes.
