The Thirsty Beaver Saloon
With the launch of Disney+ this week there is an overwhelming amount of Disney content to stream online, including one of our favorites, Pixar’s Up. The film tells the tale of an old man who refuses to sell his home for decades while developers continue to build skyscrapers around his quaint little house. Did you know that Charlotte has its own Up-like story?
Over in Plaza Midwood you can find The Thirsty Beaver Saloon, a honky-tonk inspired dive bar that has been around since 2008. Just like the house in Up, the saloon is surrounded on three sides. When developers came knocking, the owners didn’t want to sell their bar. The developers didn’t want to stop their project so they built the apartment complex around the honky-tonk. The main difference between the situations is that Up had a talking dog and the Thirsty Beaver has a beaver wearing a cowboy hat.
