It great to live in North Raleigh. We have access to great schools, tons of amenities and an awesome quality of life. The downside is that we don’t have much in the way of nightlife; we must travel elsewhere for that.
That “elsewhere” is rapidly becoming downtown Raleigh. It makes sense: Raleigh has all kinds of nightlife options: sports bars, dance clubs, pubs and music venues – plus lots more restaurants to choose from (not everyone wants to go dancing after dinner). So what’s missing? Well, North Raleigh doesn’t have many music venues (Grumpy’s is a notable exception) and it definitely lacks any dance clubs worth talking about. The closest thing we’ve got is Fortnight Brewing Company on Glenwood South but you’d better believe I’m going to be checking out Trophy Park after hearing this news!
Trophy Brewing Company is opening a location in Raleigh and we’re pretty excited about it. Located at 319 West Davie Street, the new Trophy will certainly stand out amongst its neighbors. We think it’s great that Trophy chose an attractive and well established building over rushing into a construction site and we think the neighbors will appreciate the decision as much as we do.
