Located in Raleigh, the Boxcar Bar + Arcade relays you back to the days of Tetris and Mario with their super cool arcade games and decor. Gather around here to grab a drink with friends, or catch the game with your sports buddies or better yet, challenge your friend to a playoff at Ms. PacMan. Whatever you do, a night of boozy revelry is guaranteed with an amazing variety of draft brews and tallboys. Kids are welcome with their parents to take a stab at one of these cool 1990s games before 9p. Although only an unlimited serving of fresh popcorn is made available, guests are allowed to carry in food from outside.
Located beneath King’s Royal Barcade, Neptune's Parlour is a hip underground bar that offers DJs, pinball, ping pong and arcade games. It also boasts a menu of local craft beers from mostly small North Carolina Brewers, seasonal cocktails and the very popular shot of the week. On weekends the bar is packed with dancers, and on some nights live acts play in front of the brick-walled stage. Neptune’s adds subterranean character to downtown Raleigh’s bar scene, off–or under–the beaten path.
Sandwiched between the bustling Fayetteville and Salisbury streets, Ruby Deluxe is an intimate underground space featuring a well-curated program. The 2800-square-foot (260.12-square-meter) venue may not have all the charms and thrills of a regular downtown joint, but it does impress with some stellar acts across genres. Done come expecting an extensive list of draft beers or specialty cocktails, but Ruby does have some delicious coolers and cans to quench those thirst pangs. Pool tables, arresting works of art adorning the bar and cozy seating areas add to a very convivial ambiance at this downtown space.
