Cozy spot, good music, good cocktails.
Yesterday afternoon was my first time in there. I've been quiet in the review world for some time, but I'll be babbling about this place for a long time to come.I got a lychee gimlet chalkboard special, and my partner got their spicy margarita. Both drinks were beautifully crafted--I like gimlets, and I like lychee, but I am not overly fond of saccharine cocktails. It's too easy to go overboard. This was not the case. The lychee didn't overpower anything, but instead played perfect counterpoint to the botanicals of the gin and the bright acid of the lime. Fantastically done, and well priced. More...
Favorite cocktail bar in Raleigh
Mostly an oakwood neighborhood bar. Everything is fine but is a little too loud for the neighborhood vibe that the seating suggests they are going for.

Love this place. Great weekend DJs and crafty drinks to match.
Very nice and fancy
WillCo has a very relaxed vibe. It's the perfect neighborhood cocktail bar, and the fact that they serve empanadas is a unique and welcome addition.
Cocktails are about average in Raleigh ($12). The vibe was really neat with exposed brick, some interesting art, and a large chalkboard wall. The drinks were all really tasty. Overall a nice bar in the oakwood area. More...
This is my favorite bar in Raleigh! They make amazing drinks and it has a great local, down-to-earth but alternative vibe.The first time I went to William & Company, they we serving a spicy red pepper margarita and it changed my life. Up to that point, I thought all cocktails were either sweet or made with dark liquor. I've mainly been a wine drinker, so I never realized anyone made a #spicycocktail that could knock your socks off. I was in love immediately. Now, whenever I go back to William and Company, I get whatever spicy drink they are serving that day. And, if they run out of their spicy drink du jour, they are still happy to make a spicy drink for you. All you have to do is ask! More...
The tamales are great, and the cocktails are even better!
The price was worth it! I love the cocktails they sell.
Great cocktail. Great place to see locals.
This was a great spot to have a drink with some good friends. What a great neighborhood too. I'll be heading back to try a few of the adjacent restaurants.
Nice, cozy spot
Mike and Phillip are the reason I come to this cozy bar. If you’re trying to party like Rick James, or chill like willie Nelson, be sure to check out William & co!
Great cocktails, nice atmosphere
The cocktails here are a little on the pricey side for me - $12 each - but they’re really worth it. The seasonal drinks were awesome, the atmosphere is super cozy, and it’s a great place to hang out. It’s the perfect blend of being classy without being pretentious. More...
Great drinks, cool bar and very friendly staff.drinks are a little expensive compared to other local bars.
Nice atmosphere, good location
So this is my second time coming here, my first experience was alright but it was a Saturday and super busy so that’s to be expected. But tonight we decided to give it a second shot, and I have to say Tim was our bartender and he is awesome! Great conversation, wonderful drink suggestions and I will definitely be back on Mondays for Taco night and to have him behind the bar! Thanks Tim for wonderful service! More...
Artsy little bar on Person Street with a mellow atmosphere and an interesting music selection streaming. I've been a few times after work and there's never more than half a dozen people there, but its probably lively on weekend nights. Good selection of liquors and craft beers with a friendly staff to serve them. Some sofas and chairs to relax on away from the bar, also a few tables outside along the street. More...
Awesome bar with fantastic staff and great liquor selection. A nice escape from the usual Fayetteville and Glennwood scene. Cool DJ's on the wknd with a nice laid back vibe More...
Intimate with cozy seating areas and low lights. Good music and friendly staff round the place out nicely
Cool bar outside of the normal run if downtown bars. Drinks were good, although it adds up quick. They had specials up when we were there and the one most of us had was very tasty. Lots of cozy places to be besides sitting only at the bar. I'd say probably a good place for a nightcap as well! Check it out if you're in the neighborhood. More...
Great place real chill atmosphere the owner she is awesome
Atmosphere was really chill. Bartenders and wait staff were excellent. Executed orders quickly and with great attitude and courtesy.
Great cocktails and perfect low key atmosphere. The couches are the perfect added touch
Awsome place with awsone drinks and service.
This is quite literally one of my personal favorites in Downtown Raleigh. Even when it's three deep at the bar, it's very chill. The staff behind the bar is friendly and the craft cocktails thoughtfully prepared. Order one of the featured concoctions listed on the wall, you won't be disappointed. When the weather is nice, head to the sidewalk and enjoy your selections there. More...
The floors are shiny
Quality drinks and knowledgeable bartenders but a bit too pricey if you ask me. Worth a visit but be prepared to pay a slight premium
great cocktails, fun fun fun staff
Great cozy bar, friendly atmosphere
low key bar with great bartenders and a dj!

Great neighborhood bar, cool vibe, VERY interesting cocktails
Awesome, low-key atmosphere with great drinks.
One of the best gems in Raleigh. It's a small bar, but the owner is amazing and the bartenders Mike and Phil are great. The highlight is the DJ on Fridays....
One of our favorite ars in Raleigh. The staff are so great and the drinks as just as good! They have a lot of drinks you can't find anywhere else. They have a DJ some weekend nights. One of my favorite things is that they have a featured artist displayed each month. The artwork is for sale and always is amazing! We've purchased a couple pieces ourselves! More...
Great people. Great drinks.
Tequila, tequila, FUN, tequila, & MESCAL!!!
Really cool, intimate spot with great cocktails. Pricey, though.
Best cocktail lounge in the city, among the best neighborhood bars, consistently high quality drinks and friendly bartenders.
Trendy metrosexual bar within the Person Street district at Historic Oakwood!!
Always a pleasure.
Went last night for a night cap after my 1 year anniversary dinner at Stanbury. Not very packed but great service and funny bartenders. There was a lady with short hair as the bartender and young guy who liked scotch as the bar back. Both were very personable and fun to talk to. Thanks!! More...
Loved it! Great service and vibe. Good drink selection. Low key bar. Perfect for a date night or to start the night off.
Great local spot, tamales and mexican boilermakers are signature, based on some of thebother reviews I tried to order a 'vibe' but they don't serve those.
Handmade craft cocktails with upscale vibe. Great place to start or end the night. Located in the upcoming Peace St area, one of my favorite "hidden gems" in Raleigh.
Excellent craft cocktail bar. Sometimes they have tamales or tacos too in the evenings. The art is always fresh and interesting and the service is quite quick for a craft bar.
A fine East Raleigh establishment. Subdued.
