Five Points is a very cool, and very expensive area (I think it's technically part of Hayes Barton, probably the most expensive "Old Raleigh" neighborhood there is). But yes, quite a few neat , independent, coffee shops, bistros, etc, and The Rialto, a great restored old-fashioned theatre that serves beer . There was a gay bar at Five Points for over 30 years, but it's no longer there. But, it's a very "Greenwich Village-y" part of town--despite also being loomed over by the church Jesse Helms used to attend

I think I saw a map once that shows a small part of Hayes Barton crosses Glenwood South of 5 Points. The rest of it is not Hayes Barton.
As for the Church that Jesse used to attend, I think it's just rewards that its immediate neighborhood is progressive and funky.
