Shopping! Raleigh Vintage, Revolver Boutique, Azurelise Chocolate, The Record Krate,
Start your afternoon off right with some retail therapy! Stop by two of the greatest vintage sellers in the Triangle, Raleigh Vintage and Revolver Boutique, for some carefully selected and stylish vintage clothing and goods. Then, head over the Record Krate on St. Mary’s Street. Step through the doorway of this hidden gem of Glenwood South and pick out some new or classic records and CDs. Then, head up Boylan Avenue and enjoy a bite of some of the most sumptuous chocolate around at Azurelise Chocolate! Meet Reggie, try some luxurious chocolate flavors, and pick up a few bars for the rest of our stay in Raleigh. After you’ve shopped ‘til you dropped, it’s time to fill up on lunch!
Lunch at Sushi O Bistro
Even if you aren’t a fan of fish, Sushi O is Glenwood’s go-to Asian fusion restaurant, with Thai, Chinese, and Japanese fare along with a specialty and la carte sushi. Stop in for lunch and try something new
Pedicures and Massages at Adara Spa
Instead of heading home for a nap before setting out for the evening, stop by Adara Spa to relax the rest of your afternoon away. Book a full spa package with a manicure and pedicure, massage, hair services, facials, microblading, and more! You deserve it.
Enjoy the sunset at Dix Park
At this point, you may be tired out from the day’s events. Be sure to catch your breath and a sunset at Dix Park before heading off to dinner. With 35 acres of open meadow and a breathtaking view of Downtown Raleigh, you’ll be able to camp out here and read a book or just relax and take in the rare sights of nature with urbanity.
Dinner at The Cortez
One of the greatest fine dining experiences in Raleigh, The Cortez’s seafood and small plates are the chicest option for dinner in Glenwood South. We recommend poking around their decadent cocktail menu and trying out a plate of their oysters!
After dark drinks at Raleigh Beer Garden
Say goodbye to Saturday by reveling over drinks at the Raleigh Beer Garden. This Raleigh favorite boasts the world’s largest selection of draft beers. Their enormous, ever-changing selection pairs nicely with cheap and filling bar snacks. Try out a new brew and spend the rest of your night out in the garden.
