Club's design, concept a hit with Chamber members and friends
Belmont Cocktail Club was a smash hit even before the red ribbon fell and everyone cheered at the Montcross Area Chamber’s grand opening celebration for the new cocktail bar and restaurant formerly known as Luna Hombre at 31 N. Main Street in downtown Belmont.
Chamber members, friends, customers, city officials and neighboring merchants turned out in droves to see the results of a recent transformation after Christina Cicci partnered with the Mason Jar Group of Charlotte to create a new concept for the business. The Miami cocktail bar feel they produced got rave reviews from an overflow crowd at the ribbon cutting.
Mason Jar Group partners with five other restaurants and bars in Charlotte and Matthews. MJG Operating Partner Anthony Kearney, Managing Partner Rachel Kamen and Marketing Director Celeste Kaplan attended the grand opening. Belmont Mayor Charlie Martin welcomed Belmont Cocktail Club to the business community, and Chamber Board Secretary Melia Lyerly of Lyerly Agency welcomed the new member of the Montcross Area Chamber of Commerce.
