This weekend a new bar and lounge lounge joins the bustling scene in downtown Raleigh. The Vintage Bar and Lounge will open its doors today (Friday March 26, 2010) for its grand opening in the location that was previously occupied by the Blue Martini. From a look at their website it looks like they pride themselves on offering classic cocktails including everything from “Mint Juleps” to the 1920’s favorite known as a “Side Car”. In addition to these vintage highballs, Vintage serves some excellent local beers on tap including selections from local favorites like LoneRider, Aviator, Big Boss, and Durham’s Triangle Brewing Company. They will also have live music nightly Thur-Sat.
