great pre-game, great prices, and excellent latenight.
Five Oclock Bar is nestled between Melvins Hamburgers(the best burger in Raleigh) and Two Guys Restaurant on Hillsborough Street at NCSU. Very laid back atmosphere with unbelievably specials. When the front garage door open in the evening, you see the beautiful bartenders that are hired straight from NCSU campus. Dont expect elegance, but do expect a warm atmosphere with great prices, cornhole, live music on weekends, and fun for all. Its a hit with college students and soon will be for alumni when the new Hillsborough Street renovation is finished. Don't forget to try the $1.99 burger.
