About The Raleigh MIX: Mix some downtown into your nightlife

Enjoy NO COVER + music and top shelf drink specials!

WHEN: Friday, July 25 and Friday, August 1.
WHERE: Participating downtown Raleigh venues


The wristband you receive at your first Raleigh MIX venue will prove you have already been carded and are free to enjoy all Raleigh MIX venues for FREE. The wristbands will also allow us to measure the success of the Raleigh MIX.

Friday, July 25

On the first night of this year’s MIX, head downtown to experience the attitude and ambiance of the best dance clubs in the city. Each venue will offer a top shelf drink special to compliment the DJ providing the music that night. Whether you want Manhattans and New York-Style House DJs, Mojitos and Miami Salsa, or Red Bull Vodkas and DJs spinning upbeat top 40 tunes, you’ll be able to choose one (or a few…) of the many venues to enjoy the themed experience and NO COVER all night long!

July 25 Venues


Friday, August 1

 We’ve extended the MIX to two NO COVER Friday nights in a row to showcase the many different nightlife styles available in downtown Raleigh. Each venue will host live music and feature a special “secret ingredient” drink. Here’s a hint: the secret ingredient gives a nod to both the history of the City of Raleigh and to awesome summer cocktails everywhere! All participants will have a drink special prepared with the same ingredient, and we will reveal the secret via social media on the day of the event.

August 1 Venues

Two Nights Only.
