Coming soon to Uptown 

They say when one door closes, another door opens ... and the same rings true for Charlotte nightlife. Cans is closing its doors on Jan. 3, but there are more new doors opening in Charlotte in December than there are closet doors with Cheetah Woods' mistresses coming out of them.

Let's look at a few opening up in Uptown, shall we?

Butter me up -- Butter is a club in N.Y.C. that the paparazzi hangs around outside of while the A-listers are clubbing on the inside. And with Denny Hamlin a majority owner of the one in Charlotte -- located at the N.C. Music Factory -- you can assume there will be mostly A-listers on its guest list. I was on the A-B honor roll all through high school and college ... does that count?

Rock the Kazba -- Kazba is opening in the EpiCentre right next to Mez. According to partner Derek Braun, it is going to be the VIP section of the EpiCentre. It will be a house for house music and will be exclusive by default as it only holds 150 people. It will also be energy-efficient by default as well, considering an entire wall is Nano glass and the lighting is by candlelight.

Dandelion Market -- A small plates party place opening next to the new Latorre's, and replacing the old one.

Of course, we can't forget to mention the new Whiskey Warehouse opening up in Plaza Midwood. They'll have Jack on tap and a Jack and Coke slurpee machine.

Meanwhile, the doors are already opened and keg tapped at The Liberty Gastropub in SouthEnd. And there's something fishy going on in SouthPark: the opening of Cyro's Sushi Bar -- a good choice of location considering Uptown recently had a tsunami of sushi spots between Enso, Room 112 and Fiji.

New bars, new buildings, new mayor, New Year ... there is always something new in Charlotte ... and in life. So does that mean nothing ever gets old? And change comes so quick, new doors are opening before others even close. But before you walk through all these new doors, stop by Cans before they close theirs.

Speaking of cans ... I can't help but wonder: When people do canned food drives, wouldn't it make sense to donate can openers as well?
