Raleigh Nightlife draws an eclectic crowd, and can fill up with local NC State students taking study breaks, young tech professionals discussing the latest mobile phone, or locals clad in Wranglers kicking back after work. What gives Raleigh bars and clubs flavor is the unique blend of Southern charm and dive bar décor – necessities to all local bars include dart boards, pool tables and video game screens, but more inventive decorating highlights include the Goat Bar’s assorted knickacks, like the storied groundhog clad in sunglasses. Nightlife is often the best indicator of daily life in a major city, and Raleigh’s unique blend of charming dive bars and neighborhood favorites are indicative of the city’s Southern hospitality.
