Capital Club 16

Capital Club 16 pays homage to the old and new. The restaurant serves American food with European influences and is housed inside a registered historic building in downtown Raleigh. Interiors here are a salvage house of reclaimed wood and tile taken from New York restaurants, Neuse River docks, and North Carolina mills. Classic dishes with the foresight of seasonal and locally-grown ingredients fill the menu. Capital Club 16 is a fine choice for a relaxed but refined dinner, and also has a full-service bar and serves lunch and brunch.

Alley Twenty Six

Alley Twenty Six is sophisticated cocktail and wine bar serving charcuterie and small plates in stylish surroundings. Locals come to the bar for the relaxing, dimly-lit atmosphere, classic cocktails, and nicely curated wine list. Attention to detail and flavor sets Ally Twenty Six apart from other contemporary cocktail bars. The team here creates one of a kind homemade syrups and tonics: think zesty cinchona bark and lemongrass syrup. The bar, which faces East Chapel Street, has a little outdoor seating on 26 Alley, from which it takes its name.

320 East Chapel Hill Street, At West Orange Street, Durham, NC, United States, 27701

Foundation is a subterranean bar reachable from a stairway on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. The bar, which makes good use of its underground location with exposed pipe work, brick walls, and reclaimed wood panels, is known for serving some of the best cocktails in Raleigh. The menu also features local beers and seasonal cocktails made with the best of diverse locally-sourced ingredients. Though Foundation is underground, on sunny days the bar opens street level seating perfect for enjoying a beer in the sunshine.

The Architect Bar and Social House

The Architect Bar & Social House is a fun local bar located in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. Its name is inspired by the architectural history that surrounds the 1922 establishment it calls home. The unique arrow-shaped skylight gives way to natural lighting that enhances the old-world ambiance surrounded by exposed brick walls. Enjoy domestic and international beers and spirits, or select from an array of inventive concoctions like Manhattan, Vanilla Julep or Sazarac. Cocktails are crafted exclusively from seasonal fruits and handmade tinctures. The limited appetizer menu makes for great drinking accompaniments.
