Where to Live

Cherry is largely a residential neighborhood with shops and restaurants along its borders and Cherry Park at its center. Historic homes are concentrated on the northwestern half of the neighborhood, built with a one-story, single-family style that features a gable roof and front porch. Further from Uptown, larger homes offer more rooms and a second floor. Modern condominium buildings can also be found in this part of town. Homeowners on the northeast edge of Cherry enjoy easy access to the light rail and bus routes that shuttle passengers to Uptown, though much of the neighborhood is within walking distance from the city’s center.

Where to Eat

There are many nearby restaurants available to residents of Cherry, from chain options to locally owned favorites. Many of these eateries can be found along Kings Drive, such as Mama Ricotta’s, where classic Italian dishes are enjoyed, and Dressler’s, an upscale steakhouse. More affordable, no-frills options are located to the north, such as The Original Pancake House.

What You'll See

Cherry is a historic Charlotte neighborhood home to many longtime residents, and the neighborhood’s proximity to Uptown has also made it an attractive spot for new commercial and residential developments. You’ll see residents in the heart of the neighborhood walking dogs and relaxing at the park, while on the outer edges you’ll find professionals unwinding at trendy bars and restaurants.

Friday Night Fun

While Cherry isn’t particularly known for its nightlife, the new Midtown developments just north of the neighborhood do offer a few spots to grab a drink. Of course, nearby Uptown also offers a multitude of nighttime options including gastropubs, sports bars, and rooftop patios. More casual options can be found to the west in the Dilworth and Brookhill neighborhoods.

The Perfect Sunday

In the middle of Cherry you’ll find Cherry Park, the neighborhood’s main green space. Families love spending their Sundays using the baseball diamond, playground, soccer field, and basketball court at this public park. The Little Sugar Creek Greenway, popular for biking or jogging, is also easily accessible from Midtown Park to the west. After getting some fresh air, Cherry residents might head north to the Metropolitan shopping center to pick out some new attire.
