Metropolis has a chic, urban adult atmosphere where creativity is king. Lava lamps, abstract art and the clever fusion of food and drink await. More than 80 hand crafted martinis, 20 single malt scotches, a sophisticated winelist and an everchanging assortment of fabulous things to eat are offered. Between the two of them, Mark and Matt of Metropolis have over 30 years of restaurant experience in Corolla, and they pride themselves on making your experience at Metropolis a memorable one. Open year round for dinner, and open until 2am in the summer, Metropolis is a favorite of locals and those in the restaurant industry, and will keep its kitchens open until 2am during the months of June, July, and August. In years past, smoking has been permitted in the bar at 9pm, but having recently been banned in the state of North Carolina, it will now only be tolerated outside on the patio.
Tapas is a Spanish dining style unfamiliar to many Americans, in which rather than choosing a meal of someone else's creation one has the freedom to build their own. To this end Metropolis offers more than 50 "small plates" (the literal translation of "tapas"), some lighter, some heavier, some hot, some cold, and from there the fun begins. At Metropolis, on average, 3 plates or "tapas" would constitute a meal. One can order individually, those things he or she finds interesting, but the true beauty of a tapas experience comes in sharing. A couple or a group that is larger best serves themselves in talking about all the things that sound tasty and then ordering and eating family style or communally. In that way a member of a group of 6 would get to try almost 20 different things.
Come and see what so many people are talking about. Metropolis...just like in "the city"...but better!!!
Best Wishes to all in the New Year!
