Great date night ideas near our Concord communities!

We all need to make time every now and then to just have fun.  Whether it’s a girls night out or a couples date night, we have come up with a list of fun local Concord restaurants and hangouts that are affordable and near our Concord communities, Bedford Farms, Laurel Park, and Overbrook Manor.

Enoodles Asian Bistro:  Enoodles is located in the shopping center of Afton Village.  Here you will find everything from the freshest sushi to Pad Thai and fish tacos.  They are also offering a seasonal menu,  and some nights you can get 1/2 price wine and BOGO 1/2 price on Maki Sushi Rolls.  Their large outdoor patio is the perfect spot to enjoy dinner on a warm spring night.

Party on the Plaza:  On the first Friday of each month (until October), the Afton Village tradition of Party on the Plaza returns.  Enjoy live music, good drinks, and your close friends at this fun seasonal tradition!

Wine Room at Afton Village:  Also located in Afton Village is the Wine Room.  This quaint wine bar offers a wide variety of wines, beer, and cocktails.  Stop in for a drink or stay and have dinner (their flat-breads are delicious)!  They also offer weekly events, from wine tastings on Thursdays to live music on the weekends!

Cabarrus Brewing Company:  Located behind The Depot at Gibson Mill, you will find one of the largest local breweries in Concord!  With over 48 taps, we are sure you will find something for everyone!  Not a beer lover, no problem, they also offer wine on tap! There are always fun events happening at Cabarrus Brewery.  This week alone you will find yoga club, trivia night, run club, live music, and Food Truck Friday!
