Leather & Lace - If you have to work the next morning, we bet a thousand bucks you're going to call in sick. That's because Leather & Lace, at [Address], is open all night.

Old Timers, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Old Timers

Matthews Ale House
(704) 846-7904
107 N Trade St
Matthews, NC
Description
Matthews Ale House - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Matthews Ale House is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)
