Raleigh, N.C., Nightlife

At night, Raleigh, N.C., buzzes with activity. Only a destination with the big-city energy yet small-town approachability of Raleigh can act as such a welcoming place to spend a night on the town sipping cocktails, dancing to some live music or discovering a modern-meets-historic, local beer bar that residents aren't worried about keeping secret. An energizing night out awaits you, with crowds as varied as the drink selections and a Southern-hospitality vibe that the Raleigh area is known for.

Need some ideas to jump-start your night out? Kick back on the rooftop of the world's largest beer gardencatch a live show at any of the 80-plus world-class music venues, or do your own exploring while hopping between downtown Raleigh's five, walkable entertainment districts.
