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...

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.

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 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
