Upcoming Events: 

Summer Music Sundays continue at Owl’s Eye from 3-5 on the patio, weather permitting.

May 1:  Dale Brittain (guitar and vocals) is a native of Cleveland County and has been playing and singing since high school, with time out for a career with ATT.  With retirement, musical opportunities opened up and Dale has been entertaining locals every since with a wide variety of styles of music; more than once his voice has been compared to that of James Taylor.

May 8:  Patty Mozzicato (guitar and vocals) is a member of a trio called Sorella Jack who has played in wineries, brew pubs and many festivals throughout Western North Carolina.  This Patty’s first solo performance at Owl’s Eye and she will bring “soul filling music in a variety of styles.” Everyone will hear a song he or she likes when Patty M. performs.  Owl’s Eye will offer free wine tastings and a potted plant from Shagreen Nursery to Moms in celebration of Mother’s Day.

May 15: Arvie and Bunny (guitar and vocals) create a musical experience for their listeners that crosses multiple musical genres.  They establish rapport with each audience using playful banter, storytelling and music that expresses pain, joy, sadness, love and a sincere faith.  Arvie and Bunny have performed at other area venues; this will be their first appearance at Owl’s Eye.

May 22:  Melanie Devaney (guitar, keyboard and vocals) played for an appreciative crowd when she made her first appearance at Owl’s Eye last spring during a southern tour.  She is an accomplished singer and songwriter and has a degree in Creative Writing along with an extensive background in classical music.  She will perform a mix of folk-rock, Americana and pop.  Melanie has been compared to Sheryl Crow, Allison Krauss and Emmy Lou Harris by music reviewers.

May 29:  Danny Scruggs (guitar and vocals) has had a lifelong interest in music, and since retiring from the faculty at Cleveland Community College, has been performing a fine selection of vintage jazz, blues, folk and pop ever since.  Danny’s relaxed, easy style and personal warmth will enrich your Sunday afternoon.



Spring/Summer hours are Noon-6 Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 1:00-6:00 on Sunday (live music from 3-5)

Owl’s Eye will be closing at 5:00pm on June 4th to prepare for a wedding.

Come relax on our patio, enjoy tasting our wines while you savor the beauty of the South Mountains in the background.  We’re waiting for you.

We welcome leashed pets.  We do have small cheese and fruit plates available for sale, if you are not in a picnic frame of mind.  There is no prettier view in Cleveland County than the one from our patio…great wines and warm hospitality—a winning combination.
