Raleigh Nightlife Review

raleigh nightlife best bars and nightclubsRaleigh is the capital city of North Carolina. It’s home to the prestigious North Carolina State University. There are several other universities and research institutions in this city. Along with Durham, it makes up part of an area in North Carolina called the Research Triangle. An area filled with college students is bound to be crawling with pleasure seekers. This is partly the reason why Raleigh is filled with new bars and restaurants.
