50. Hibernian Pub

This Raleigh staple mixes tradition (live music, cold pints) with the contemporary (free wireless internet access). Spacious, with plenty of rooms available to rent for your next birthday party, the Hibernian also offers plenty of outdoor seating. With the sudden appearance of nice weather, grabbing a Guinness and posting up at one of the picnic tables to watch the girls in skirts is a better, more attainable dream than whatever you've been pining for all workday.
