A charming vintage mill village turned walkable arts district. A funky, eclectic neighborhood packed with local eateries, boutiques, art galleries, live music venues, and historic bungalow homes. Welcome to NoDa.
Located about two miles northeast of Uptown, you will find one of Charlotte's most unique communities. NoDa, short for North Davidson Arts District, is a haven for everyone from artists to young professionals. It is one of Charlotte's most walkable neighborhoods and also one of its most tight-knit. There is always a community event to attend, such as outdoor movie nights, softball games, trivia nights, block parties, and scavenger hunts. Due to COVID-19, some events are temporarily suspended. Check the website before you go.
Locally-owned businesses line the streets and twice a month, residents gather in town for art gallery crawls. Every street in the district oozes a creative vibe you will not find anywhere else in North Carolina. When they are not checking out the art galleries, residents are heading out to enjoy a drink at a local pub, catch some live music, or enjoy a delicious meal from restaurants offering an assortment of dishes from around the world. NoDa residents also take great pride in supporting their local businesses and artists.
NoDa's history dates back to the early 1900s when development began on what was farmland at the time. The city of Charlotte was a thriving hub for textile production at the time, and several businessmen decided to build a mill in the area, along with homes for the mill workers. As those mill workers moved into the community, others followed, and soon businesses, churches, and schools began popping up around the neighborhood. Unfortunately, those textile mills began to close in the 1960s and 1970s, and workers began selling their houses and leaving. Sadly, the area suffered a bit of a decline in the years that followed. However, as the city of Charlotte began to grow into a major banking center, a few local artists decided to make the NoDa area a popular place to live again. They bought and renovated homes and buildings, and others began to follow. Today, the area is thriving once again, though residents work hard to help the neighborhood retain its historic appeal.
The neighborhood is just a quick drive into Uptown, which means residents have access to dozens of sports venues, museums, theaters, concert venues, and more, but for a night out on the town, it is not necessary to leave NoDa. The community has a vibrant nightlife which includes restaurants, bars, breweries, live music venues, and a theater. There are also a few noteworthy parks, gardens, and historic sites scattered throughout the area. If you prefer to shop in local, eclectic boutiques instead of big-box stores and malls, you are in the right place. The community's walkable streets are lined with shops, galleries, and restaurants, offering something for every taste.
In NoDa, new residents will find a variety of housing options made up mostly of single-family bungalows and condominiums. Many of the Craftsman-style bungalows date back to the early half of the 20th century when they served as homes for local mill workers and still maintain their historic charm. Some have undergone renovation, while some are waiting for your personal touch. A number of condos are located in NoDa, including some old warehouses that were converted into hip living spaces.
