A group of 6 women are going out to dinner on Hargett tomorrow night. We'd like to walk to a few bars/nightspots after that. Any recommendations for places that are age-appropriate and not packed and loud? What is upstairs at what used to be the Mint?

Thanks!

Solas is the first thought that I have. I'd be interested to see what ideas others have.

Foundation or The Fox Liquor Lounge could be appropriate. They are much quieter. Solas - top floor only. But they'd be driving or cabbing there. I assume the OP wants downtown Raleigh.

It depends a little on the time that you will be out--Before 10:30, most places aren't that loud or packed. After 10:30 places start to fill up, noise gets louder, etc.

Regardless, Busy Bee is a good place that usually has people of all ages and it's big enough that it doesn't feel cramped. I agree with the above post that Fox's and Foundation definitely are 2 of the quieter bars downtown, but personally, I've felt surrounded in both of them even when they weren't super busy. If you are out before 11, I would suggest the Oxford, Neptunes, and London Bridge as places that have an interesting vibe and won't be crazy yet.

One of the great things about downtown Raleigh is that very few places make you pay a cover charge, so ultimately you can just walk into a place, look around, and if it's not what you're looking for you can turn around and walk a few feet to the next place.
