Welcome to Essex Bar & Bistro. We've put as much care into the craft of cocktailing as we do our menu of world cuisine. Our Chef and Mixologist's bring in only the most fresh ingredients to ensure the very best for our guests. Located in the heart of uptown Charlotte at Trade & Tryon, and only steps away from the Spectrum Center, Essex is the perfect place for happy hour, evening cocktails, after-dinner drinks, or a late night rendezvous.

Spectacular World Cuisine

Executive Chef, Michael Curtis, brings his 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry. He is explicitly known for his creativity in the kitchen as well as developing new concepts for three restaurant openings.
