Located in the heart of downtown Wilmington, C-Suite Lounge takes its customers back a century with its 1920s atmosphere all while mixing a contemporary element to make everyone feel right at home.  

The lounge, 312 Nutt St., aims to bring business professionals as well as tourists together to unwind and relax.  

“At C-Suite Lounge, we open our doors to the heart of the community. It’s a place where local business owners, professionals and entrepreneurs can come together to unwind and connect,” says Jason DeRosier, one of C-Suite Lounge’s financial partners. 

C-Suite owners hope that tourists will also pay a visit to the new lounge. Located in the historic Cotton Exchange, C-Suite is bringing something new to the already well-established shopping and dining locale. Owners are optimistic that C-Suite will attract vacationers and visitors who are shopping or dining at the Cotton Exchange and riverfront.  

Living up to its nostalgic mood and surroundings, C-Suite offers drinks with classic nods on its menu such as a Hemingway Old Fashioned or a Fitzgerald Martini. The bar is specializing in handcrafted cocktails and drinks inspired by historical figures of the 1920s. Other drinks include house cocktails such as the Honey Peach Lemonade and the Pretty Ricky as well as a selection of Mules.  

The bar and lounge also has an event planning team that can transform the entire lounge into a private atmosphere for social gatherings, private networking events or refined celebrations. 

The bar and lounge is taking a page from many of the other downtown bars by creating a theme of historical eras long past. The bar owners are hedging their bets that it will match to downtown’s rich history and grow to become a local Wilmington destination.  

C-Suite is using the motto of, “at the intersection of timeless sophistication and modern innovation” to blend nostalgia and elegance to create its atmosphere for bargoers.  

C-Suite is open Wednesday-Saturday from 4-9 p.m. and for private parties by reservations.
