A new restaurant has been announced next to The Common Market’s new South End location.
The Zeppelin will offer Seasonal Small Plates, Craft Cocktails, Fine Wines, Local Charcuterie & Cheeses (think Dean & DeLuca meets Roosters). It will be set in a ‘Steampunk-themed’ interior that will attempt to highlight South End’s rich history.
“Zeppelin is excited to provide a much needed upscale casual dinner & craft cocktail lounge in the Southend Community. We are a proud addition to the West Tremont Avenue corridor which will grow into the central hub of Charlotte’s fastest growing neighborhood,” commented Zeppelin’s co-owner Jonathan Swope. “Zeppelin scouted locations for over a year until we found a building that preserves Charlotte’s, and specifically Southend’s, rich history which keeps getting torn down brick-by-brick.”
The new restaurant and bar will include about 80 seats in a 2,300 sq ft interior space with another 30 seats on a 750 sq ft outdoor patio.
The food and drinks will be created by a trained chef from Johnson & Wales (Jonathan said he didn’t want the chef’s name to be released yet).
