In the tradition of the speakeasy, follow the discreetly-marked path through the Kingpin bowling alley, down a neon-lit stairwell, enter an inconspicuous door, and pass into The Blind Fox, Kannapolis’ only private members’ bourbon club and event space.

The Blind Fox is located in the center of Downtown Kannapolis, beneath the street-level bustle of the historic brick buildings of Cannon Mills. Originally built in the 1930s and converted into a fallout shelter during the Cold War - little did Mr. Cannon know that the safe haven he constructed for his employees would later be reimagined as a future gathering place of entertainment. Our stylish subterranean bar, lounge, and barrel room have transformed the formerly utilitarian underground space into an elevated social club - our modern tribute to the clandestine speakeasy of yesteryear.

Pull up a barstool, or take a seat in one of the many intimate nooks and corners throughout the club, and treat yourself to our selection of over one hundred new, vintage, and rare bourbons. Tip a dram, take it neat, shaken or stirred - our certified mixologists will expertly guide you through our curated list of bourbons and spirits, craft you a classic or seasonal cocktail, or pour your new favorite imported wine or local craft beer. Cigar aficionados may order from a selection of premium imported cigars to savor in our members’ outdoor smoking lounge.

The Blind Fox is brought to you by Kent Gregory, Ken Lingafelt, and
the West Ave District group, the innovators behind the revitalization of Cannon Mills in Downtown Kannapolis, North Carolina.

The Blind Fox is not just a upscale social club, but also a community of like-minded bourbon and cocktail enthusiasts united by a collective passion for quality, spirit and craft.

Speak easy and raise a glass to the Underground.
