Districts

Glenwood South

No district in Downtown Raleigh does hip and trendy like the Glenwood South District. Progressive restaurant concepts line the venerable Glenwood Avenue and create the place to see and be seen on warm evenings in Downtown Raleigh. What was once a quiet row of warehouses and art supply stores has transformed over the past five years into a thriving restaurant and retail environment. The district’s nightlife will soon welcome a significant residential boom, as more than 900 new condos and apartments will help to sustain the district’s vitality for the coming years.

To elevate its strong community, Glenwood South Neighborhood Collaborative has been established to bring residents and merchants together to strengthen their community and to develop models for communication and collaboration around issues affecting their neighborhood.  

The Raleigh City Council established the Glenwood South Hospitality District in an effort to address concerns about noise that may impact nearby residents.  To see which merchants hold Hospitality District Entertainment Permits, or to file a noise complaint, click here.  To file the complaint, click on the merchant in question and follow the prompts.
