Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

The Forgotten Bar Of Hillsborough Street



The bar pictured above has been forgotten and abandoned for some time. It is very easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it, but is located directly beneath Mitch’s Tavern. It was purchased by Mitch some time ago, and has sat idle ever since. I’ve heard from various friends that have worked for him over the years that he bought it simply to prevent any sort of competition near his business. Many have also speculated that he is simply not ambitious enough to do anything with it.
Can anyone shed light on this particular place’s history?
