A brand new neighborhood bar called Borderline Bar & Billiards is getting ready to make its debut in NoDa, located at 4100 Raleigh St., 4212 Raleigh St., and 530 E. Sugar Creek Road.
This is the newest concept from Greg Guillorn, who is behind Charlotte’s popular gastropub, The Degenerate, according to CityBiz. Borderline Bar & Billiards will have 4,000 square feet of space inside with a full bar, a curated cocktail and craft beer list, and plenty of entertainment, including multiple regulation-size pool tables and dart boards. The bar will also have a 1,800-square-foot patio with additional seating, a fire pit, and more games.
“I moved to Charlotte about six years ago, and I’ve been living in NoDa for the past four years. It’s definitely my favorite part of the city,” Guillorn tells CityBiz. “There are other great neighborhoods, but NoDa, in particular, is fun, diverse, and full of interesting things to do, so when searching for a location for Borderline, The Pass felt like a great fit. I hope to create a space that brings people together for some friendly competition, great drinks, and good times. I’m very excited about opening our doors and contributing to the culture and nightlife of the neighborhood I’ve become so fond of.”
The new bar concept will join other previously announced and newly signed tenants coming to Pass 41, led by Atlanta-based developer Third & Urban. The mixed-use developer also announced the coming of PINE, an event venue from 828 Venue Management Company. Both PINE and Borderline Bar & Billiards are expected to open in Spring 2024. The two new tenants will join Soul Gastrolounge, which closed its doors earlier this year to move to a new space. With substantial construction on Pass 41 now complete, Third & Urban is focused on tenant build-outs and the construction of the multifamily building, with the first residents expected to move in during the Summer of 2025.
“We are carefully building a new district in NoDa that will be home to a community of entrepreneurs, artists, and many others who feel inspired by being here,” Hank Farmer, co-founder of Third & Urban, tells CityBiz. “The character of the original buildings, mixed with the new construction, the infusion of local art, and the direct connectivity to trails, greenspace, and transit, makes this place special. We look forward to welcoming the public to The Pass over the course of the next year.”
