Dine Out Downtown Returns with More Dates and More Locations 


RALEIGH, NC – Downtown Raleigh Alliance (DRA) is relaunching Dine Out Downtown starting this Saturday, April 3 from 5-9pm. Visitors are invited to enjoy dinner from a Downtown Raleigh restaurant as they dine outdoors on closed streets and listen to live music by local musicians. 


The event will take place every Saturday from 5-9pm (weather permitting) in April, May and June and will rotate among four centralized locations downtown – Fayetteville Street District, Warehouse District, Glenwood South and City Market. 


There are two ways to participate 1) Look at the list of participating restaurants and check availability for extended outdoor restaurant seating or 2) Get take-out from one of your favorite Downtown Raleigh restaurants and eat outside at an open table provided by DRA.
