The new dual-branded AC Hotel / Residence Inn project at the EpiCentre will include a swanky 22nd-floor rooftop bar and restaurant when it opens this spring.
Nuvole Rooftop TwentyTwo is a 4,400-square-foot space with a large U-shaped bar, floor-to-ceiling windows, firepits and a 2,200-square-foot outdoor patio.
The view from the main outdoor patio spans roughly from Bank of America tower to the north to One Wells Fargo to the southwest.
The EpiCentre, of course, is directly below.
Peter Pollay of Mandara Hospitality Group and Posana restaurant in Asheville is consulting on the menu.
It’ll feature items like a NC shrimp seafood tower, Carolina bison tartare, coldwater lobster and smoked pork belly mac and cheese.
Noah Sheer, who has worked in North Carolina fine dining establishments like the Biltmore Estate and Omni Grove Park Inn, will manage the bar and lounge.
Sharing the 22nd floor with Nuvole is a 1,350-square-foot luxury 2-bedroom penthouse suite that serves as an event venue and VIP overnight rental.
You could rent the entire floor — bar, lounge and penthouse — for a wedding or legendary party. Don’t forget to invite us.
Note the orientation of the scenery in the renderings is off. You’d actually be looking at Bank of America tower in the top photo and One Wells Fargo in the bottom photo.
AC Hotel / Residence Inn is targeting a spring 2018 opening but an exact date has not been set.
Nuvole will lag behind, opening in the weeks following the hotel’s opening.
