Walking into STIR Charlotte feels like taking a breath of fresh air.

With its open-air concept, the 6,100-square-foot space brightens from the natural light filtering through clear windows along the wall. But the clear panes are more than windows — along the front of the restaurant, garage doors open to blur the line between indoor and outdoor.

STIR Charlotte’s grand opening is set for July 20, and proceeds from the opening events will benefit the Isabella Santos Foundation, a local nonprofit that raises money and awareness for rare pediatric cancer research.

The grand opening event is just the beginning for STIR’s partnership with ISF. Through the month of August, for every Austin Mule cocktail sold, STIR will donate $2.
