HISTORIC CHARM, VIBRANT AMBIENCE
Set in the heart of Charlotte’s Historic SouthEnd Neighborhood, Flower Child will occupy a building originally built in 1921. Previously home to a variety of notable businesses including The Charlotte Post and New Big Village Diner, the building underwent a recent renovation, reinvigorating the property, while still preserving its historic charm.
The newest Flower Child location will have many of the same design elements that characterize the brand, bright murals, airy atmosphere, an open kitchen and one of Flower Child’s signature touches a designated area for yoga mat parking. Unique to Charlotte will be a fireplace facing a large patio space and the largest number of art installations of any Flower Child location.
