Paradise in every sip.

From a far-off shore he has come. A nameless, worldly man of ports and people. Lost at sea in grief over the infamous Black Tot Day, when the daily rum ration of the Queen’s Navy ended, along with his dreams and aspirations. Blinded by thirst and rage, he sailed across the seas and took on Poseidon himself! Alas, a shipwreck has brought him to shore in the Queen City. Washed up with flotsam, he has found a paradise of treasures and fine food where every sailor gets their tot. And every experience is as different as the tides and winds stir the sands of paradise.

Can't wait for The Royal Tot to open later this fall? Introducing Rumaway Cove, a premium tropical cocktail experience just a stone's throw from The Royal Tot. 

Book your reservation, but beware! This pop up is only open until the debut of The Royal Tot, then it's gone forever!

Starting Nov. 22

The Royal Tot is Charlotte's EXCLUSIVE venue for the national Sippin Santa Popup. This isn't all holly and ivy. Imagine Santa's summer vacation at the beach. Swimsuits, flip flops, sunnies...we're bringing the holidays to the tropics. Expect our island drinks to have holiday themes to make spirits bright.
