New Bar in Town: The Night Rider - Downtown Raleigh

Posted by Raleigh Nightlife Staff • Nightlife News

Just yesterday morning I popped by the new Cold off the Press location on South Street to pick up some tasty cold-pressed juice and noticed some light signage in the neighboring windows. I did a tiny little bit of investigating and found their neighbors to be none other than the relatively new bar dubbed "The Night Rider".

Owned by the same folks behind Ruby Deluxe and the upstairs small music venue known as "The Wicked Witch", this edge-of-Downtown-Raleigh spot is open from 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. daily so it wasn't open at the time of my visit.

Here's what I gleaned from the social medias, though: they have a patio that they share with their cool neighbors (tats and juice, anyone?), they've got some fancy champs (solid choice for what will likely be classified as a "dive bar"), and they even serve your favorite frozen snacks as munchies.

Since I'm naturally curious about all things DTR, especially those happening so close to my office, I'll be stopping in one day soon to check this spot out myself. Stay tuned, y'all - I'll gladly report back!
