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

The Office Night Club Quietly Disappears

The Office was pretty old by night club standards downtown. It started in 2001 in a former coal warehouse dating back to the latter part of the 19th century. The last time I found myself in the area, I noticed the sign and valet stand gone. It looks to be closed for good.

I’ve never been to this particular club before. As I’ve mentioned in a previous post about The Office, the clientele and appearance that was projected (red carpet, valet, surly-looking bouncers, etc.) was unappealing to me, so I never ventured inside.

Nestled between a few abandoned Dillon buildings, the former coal yard, and the Amtrak Station, it isn’t exactly in a highly trafficked area. Nonetheless, they managed to stay in business for around 8 years. Their Facebook profile last advertised an event 4 months ago, so it’s safe to guess it was somewhat recently that they shut down.

I’d like to see something interesting take over the space, but I think the only thing that could possibly survive in that location is another bar or night club.
