Friends, we hope you are having an extra cup of coffee right now because you are going to need it! Bars and restaurants can now stay open until 11 p.m. and they can seat customers inside for the first time in almost a year! In this week’s Friday Five, we are highlighting five bars that we cannot wait to spend a few more hours with at night as well as warm-up inside of on those chilly days. Get an extra espresso shot, you are not going home at 9 p.m., it’s time for your Friday Five. ☕

Dram & Draught, we love your patio but your barstools inside are calling our name! Whether you are looking for whiskey, a cocktail, wine, or a beer, Dram & Draught does all of this and more, with a style that is all their own!
We love starting our weekends at 10th & Terrace! Now open until 11 p.m., grab a seat on their rooftop terrace or warm up inside. No matter where you sit, you can enjoy gorgeous views of Downtown Raleigh while you indulge in a perfectly poured cocktail, fine wine, or local craft beer.
When it comes to cocktails, the mixologist team at Killjoy knows what they are doing. Their “posh meets eccentric” vibe and envy-worthy playlist, make it one of our favorite places to head on a Friday night. Whether you are shaking off a long day or kicking off a big night, Killjoy is the spot to be.
P.S. They have an incredible spirit-free menu!
