This content was produced in partnership with Specialty Shops SouthPark.

Specialty Shops SouthPark has been a local staple for a sophisticated and refined shopping experience in Charlotte since 1979.

The privately owned boutiques, national retailers and acclaimed restaurants at Specialty Shops SouthPark offer a Palm Beach/Worth Avenue-inspired atmosphere, providing an intimate shopping and dining experience in an upscale community.

Although shopping can be fun, shopping during the holidays can be chaotic. These three spots are all about gift giving and are here to help.

(1) Paco’s Tacos & Tequila

Open Sunday to Thursday, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.

At Paco’s Tacos & Tequila, people should expect to kick back, relax, and have a good time.

“Our gift cards are obviously the easiest because tacos are too messy to put in a stocking,” said Remy Thurston, director of content at FS Food Group. “We also sell our homemade flour tortillas if you want to take them home and gift someone a taco party of your own. It’s a great way to bring fresh tacos into your house without as much of the work.”

Paco’s Tacos also has the availability to rent out parts of its dining rooms for private events, such as holiday gatherings.

(2) Drybar

Open Monday to Wednesday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
