5 to Try


1622 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC 27608

The soft leather chairs and corner fireplace make this Five Points bar a wintertime favorite.

Mitch's Tavern

2426 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27607

Maybe it's the fact that this Raleigh bar is a hidden find--or the fact that the wood is dark and the lighting dim--but Mitch's is the perfect cold weather retreat.

W.B. Yeats

306-G W Franklin St, Chapel Hill, NC 27516

Sitting shoulder-to-shoulder in one of this Chapel Hill bar's wooden booths is intimate and inviting.

West End Wine Bar

450 W Franklin St, Chapel Hill, NC 27516

Who could resist West End's crushed velvet sofas and huge wine selection?
