Raleigh’s Newest Draw

Though it may not boast a fancy name, the Raleigh Warehouse District has transformed into one of the hottest spots in North Carolina. Though originally built as an industrial zone, the six-block district filled with spacious, old brick buildings now hosts several retail shops, businesses, restaurants, and art galleries. Some of the most popular creative spots include the Litmus Gallery & Studios and the Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh.

For good eats, locals and visitors flock to Tuscan Blu for fine Italian cuisine and Humble Pie for jazz and tapas, as well as The Borough, a local neighborhood pub. The district also includes some of the hottest nightlife options in Raleigh, beckoning guests to hubs such as Ugly Monkey Party Bar and Whiskey Room Music Parlor, a hip lounge and venue for performing artists.

If your average afternoon or night out just isn’t quite doing it for you anymore, give the trendy neighborhood a shot. With plenty of choices for shopping, dining, partying, and everything in between, the Raleigh Warehouse District shouldn’t be easily dismissed.
