The redesigned pub proudly offers floor to ceiling windows that open onto Glenwood Avenue, multiple bars, a second floor patio and bar area overlooking downtown Raleigh.More

Discover Chapel Hill

As one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the country, it's no surprise that the restaurant scene keeps heating up in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. These central North Carolina cities are collectively known as the Triangle, and, thanks in part to the number of universities and colleges in the area, there is an abundance of excellent restaurant options. Although essentially every type of international and American cuisine is available, some of the more prevalent options are eclectic Asian, Italian, steakhouse and seafood. Chapel Hill has one of the oldest restaurant and bars known for great hamburgers while an upscale Durham restaurant serves Mexican dishes with a modern touch. Classic southern fare is of course on the menu too.
