How About Home and Design In The Queen City

Or Where to Travel in the Carolinas and Beyond

A Little About Us

At QC Exclusive, we take our five pillars — arts and culture, food and drink, home and design, travel, and sporting — very 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 value, time, and effort on creating national-quality storytelling and photography for all of our media.

Print. 

Our print publication hits stands nine times a year and averages over 150 pages per issue. In its pages, readers can enjoy interviews with the 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 including our staff photographer Jamey Price.

Online. 

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.

Newsletter. 

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. And the best part is we don’t like junk mail either, so our newsletter is only full of the good stuff. Excited to receive some good news? Click here to be included.

Social. 

On your phone, you can find us focusing most of our time on Instagram (@qcexclusive), where we share our favorite Charlotte images and stories, but we’re also on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter too, so if you prefer those give us a search.

Events.

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 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 here on our website. And if you need anything give us a shout. We hope you enjoy!
