Always a great time. My favorite spot to see up and coming shows in all of Raleigh.
Live music, $1 beer specials, movie nights, wrestling--it's all here. – In Short
It's the solid booking and an unpretentious atmosphere that make this club a great hangout. A little on the small side, maybe, Kings compensates with a split floor design that leaves you close to the stage in back, but with plenty of room to play pool, get a drink or socialize with friends on the bar side. A good range of local and touring acts play here, and the cover charges aren't likely to break your bank.
Epicenter of Raleigh Rock – King's is the epicenter of the raleigh rock scene sans snobbery. Complete with pool tables, old school video games, cheap beer, and now mixed drinks and oodles of local, regional, and national bands it truly is a great hangout. Each night varies as much as the musical act that is performing--I've seen everything from indie rock to reggae, hip hop and even some movies and comedy acts. Their annual Gong Show is always a riot. Even if you don't know what is going on that night at the club, its fun just to relax at the bar or in one of the comfy banquettes. A recent remodeling has made it even cozier. This place is so unprentious, a rariety in the triangle--you can come in dolled up or slobbed out, because no one really cares about anything there, except having a good time. Check it out!
