We’re open Wednesday through Saturday, 5pm to 2am and we’d love for you to come by for a visit!

Be sure and get your membership now so you won’t have to sign up when you arrive. Our memberships are just $10 through the end of November, then they’ll go back to the regular rate of $25. Click here to get your membership!

What can you expect to find at 5? We’re a casual speakeasy nestled beneath an old mercantile shipping warehouse built in 1905 located beside the railroad tracks at the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Jones Street. We’re conveniently positioned between Glenwood South and downtown, close enough to both without being in the middle of all the fray. At 5, you’ll discover great local craft beer, custom cocktails, a curated wine list by our upstairs neighbors, The Raleigh Wine Shop, remarkable champagnes and champagne cocktails, old-fashioned customer service, a huge covered and heated patio, big dance floor, Island Sound DJs without attitude, and feelgood music from the 1950s to today’s hits. We open at 5pm Wednesday through Saturday and our guests can relax after work on the heated patio or inside with a refreshing drink, great conversation, and good music.

What you won’t find at 5: inferior quality spirts (our house liquors include locally owned Social House vodka, Evan Williams 1783 whiskey, El Jimador tequila, Cruzan Aged rum, New Amsterdam gin, and others). With all the great local beer in the Triangle and across NC, we’ve decided to support local breweries by not carrying domestic beer. We have six on draft and ten more in bottles and cans. What else won’t you find at 5? No employee attitude, music that’s so loud you can’t hear yourself think, an overcrowded bar (we’re limiting the number of people inside at less than our max capacity so our guests can enjoy some comfortable elbow room). Customer service is our goal and we think you’ll like what you find at 5.

Giving back. At 5 Lounge, we feel that it’s extremely important to be part of our community. Local charities and non-profits do so much for those around us who need a helping hand, so we’ve decided to donate 5 percent of our net proceeds and half our membership fees to a different local worthwhile organization each month. Our first charity will be the Women’s Center of Wake County, which helps women and children who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. You can learn more about the Women’s Center on their website, www.wcwc.org.
