Excited about Charlotte's Up-And-Coming Food Scene?

How About Arts and Culture In The Queen City

Or Where to Travel in the Carolinas and Beyond

A Little About Us

Five Pillars.

Culture. Food. Design. Travel. Sporting.

At QC Exclusive, we take these pillars seriously. After all, living a good life requires each of them. A vibrant arts scene completes a city. A good meal brings us all together. A beautiful environment breeds happiness. A new travel destination helps us grow. A natural experience gives us an opportunity to pay homage. And that’s all we’re trying to do: pay our respect to the city we love and the states we love to explore. As Charlotte and the Carolinas’ luxury lifestyle brand, we feel that it is crucial to share our city’s stories the way they are meant to be shared. That’s why we place extreme value on national-quality storytelling and photography in all of our mediums.


Our print publication hits stands nine times a year and averages over 180 pages per issue. In its pages, readers can enjoy interviews with the most talented tastemakers in our city, experience the Carolinas vicariously through our talented travel writers, read local profiles from our well-versed staff, and enjoy the finest in imagery – most of which is curated and produced in-house – from the area’s most respected photographers.


Here on our website, you’ll enjoy unique content updated daily. It’s a great place for those looking for beautiful local snippets and lists from all the pillars mentioned above. You can also find our editor-selected weekly events, a favorite amongst website visitors.


Our newsletter goes out every week and features upcoming must-attend events, good reads, and amazing giveaways with local prizes from our area’s best restaurants, shops, and more. If you’re wary of signing up, don’t be. We’re never a bother, and we think it’s pretty good.


On your phone, you can find us focusing most of our time on Instagram (@qcexclusive), a social media network that we feel showcases our strengths the best. It places a ton of value on imagery and storytelling, and that’s what we love to share. We’re on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter too, so if you prefer those give us a search.


Lastly, our events series allows us to bring our Charlotte experiences to life. After each issue hits stands, we invite our readers and sponsors to gather at The Assembly Room – an event house near our office at The Foundry on Cedar Street on the fringe of Uptown – to mingle, eat, drink, and revel in the newest magazine. We hope to see you at one soon but until then, have a look around. We hope you enjoy!
