Thousands to Explore Downtown Raleigh Nightlife at The Raleigh MIX, July 25
RALEIGH, NC (July 23, 2014) – The Raleigh MIX presented by Common 414 and Paddy O’Beers will welcome thousands of nightlife seekers to Downtown Raleigh on Friday, July 25 to explore 20 dance clubs and nightlife venues at no cover charge. Last year’s MIX event drew over 10,000 patrons to Downtown Raleigh to experience downtown’s vibrant nightlife and this year, they are expecting to welcome even more nightlife seekers.
On Friday, July 25, patrons will receive a wristband to serve as an all-access pass to 20 select nightlife venues to experience the social ambiance of the hottest dance clubs in the city. Wristbands provide the advantage of one-time age verification, speeding up standing-in-line times throughout the evening. At each venue, special guest DJs will be spinning tunes and bartenders will be offering top shelf drink specials. Times will vary depending on venue.
According to David Meeker, Downtown resident who lives at the PNC Plaza Condos, “The Raleigh MIX is a fun event for downtown residents who enjoy the mix of live music venues that are walking distance from our homes.”
Among the newly opened nightlife venues are Presenting Sponsor Common 414, a new Gatsby-inspired jazz bar owned by Isaac Hunters Hospitality and Capital City Tavern, a pub featuring over 100 beers and a full bar.
The Downtown Raleigh Alliance is proud to announce Common 414 and Paddy O’Beers as the presenting sponsors of the Raleigh MIX. Thank you to our sponsors: DJ Booth Sponsor Taxi Taxi Raleigh, Dance Floor Sponsor Hibernian, and Media Sponsor Clear Channel.
The DRA is pleased to have Taxi Taxi as a partner of this event all the while promoting safety and social responsibility to not drink and drive.
