The Epicentre has always been one of Charlotte's’ more elegant nightspots, and the same is true in its hottest club, Kandy Bar. The DJs read the crowd from top-40 mixes to EDM, weekends nights pack the house, this sophisticated club is more about creating the right environment for high-end meetings and surprise performances. Try to find a way to book an ultra-exclusive VIP table within a club, where the bottle table service is on point and you never know which celebrities you’ll bump into.
They are a racist establishment, they discriminate against black people, and employees are disgustingly rude. I wouldn't put is past them to spit in your food.
Racist establishment. Do not spend your money here! Not now, not tomorrow, not CIAA, never. You are not valued here. Just look at their photos there is no diversity. They choose to "apologize" for these allegations by calling everyone "ignorant" and rude and refuse to just say "I'm sorry." The are blocking people on Facebook and removed their reviews there to avoid others seeing their bad business and even turned their instagram page private. They are running away from the guilt!
So interestingly enough I recently seen this post and experienced a similar situation. While at the Epicenter for Labor day me and a group of guys and girls attempted to go to a club called KANDY BAR!! One of our guy friends had a pair of Brand New black/white Adidas shoes and they rejected his entry. Being that you can see the inside from in line I proceeded to look at the dress code of other individuals inside and an Asian guy had on the exact pair of shoes!! We are all African Americans and they continued to ask us about our membership as well!! As we continued to wait a group of Caucasian girls were behind us with Very Dirty Chuck Taylor shoes and they were allowed access!! I asked to speak to a manager he REFUSED to even talk to us!! Every customer should be treated with same respect and equally!! They are very Discriminatory, Racist and Unprofessional!! Be careful about going to this establishment!!! If you have experienced a similar situation please share!!!
We went to the Epic center in Charlotte, NC and attempted to enter a bar called Kandy bar. It was a group of about 8 black girls and 1 black guy. They told us we could not enter because we were not members so they made us leave. Well of course I asked the group of white girls behind us if they were members and they said no you don't need a membership to get in. Ummmm? So i guess the membership was you had to be white? So me and my sister stayed there for several minutes to watch the line and of course they made every black person in that line leave and continued to only let Caucasians in. My money spends just like everyone elses. People are so blind. They say racism don't exist. Well my friends and I experienced it first hand. Also, the black guy with dreds tried to get in with a group of white girls and because they ask the bouncer if he could come in with them. The bouncer made them leave as well. ..smh! #boycottKANDYBAR##PLEASESHARE#
The owners states that this is a member only bar per nc law but only to African americans. But to all others they are let in with no problem! Not once was a person other than black where asked for membership, or had to show proof.! They also today just placed membership terms on their website after the fiasco
