Tommy’s Pub & Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, was more than just a place to come and grab a drink. For many, this dive bar was a second home. For others, it served as a safe haven; an unpretentious refuge for people from all walks of life. On June 6, 2016, the building that has been standing since 1938 was demolished to pave way for new apartments, spurring controversy about gentrification in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood and greater Charlotte. This photo story documents the bar’s final year, offering intimate access to a community in Charlotte few people knew about and that many more will never get to experience.
