On Thursday, September 22, we'll be having our September Girls Night Out at Aloft in downtown Raleigh. You'll be able to spot the hotel by the huge, awesome silver metal sculpture suspended from the side of the building.
The hotel has a great modern, lounge-y atmosphere. The hotel also has a great bar called the WXYZ bar that is a great setting for anything from a night out with friends, a date night with your sweety, or even a business meeting as they have plenty of private little nooks.
The WXYZ bar is on the 2nd floor of the hotel with a great outdoor patio overlooking the hustle and bustle of NCSU campus and Hillsborough Street. If you're a Pack fan, you'll love the view of the bell tower from those great orange chairs.
There's also plenty of cozy seating inside for when the weather is not cooperating for a night on the patio. Some of the more modern lounges and bars have a not-so-inviting feeling but WXYZ bar is completely different. With all the vibrant colors, comfy couches, and pillows, you're sure to find a spot that's just right.
Step up to the bar and you'll find a great selection of whiskeys - the WXYZ bar's main attraction. They also have a well rounded variety of beers for beer lovers - mostly local brews. And of course a great selection of wines if you're craving something a little lighter.
The signature drink at WXYZ bar, which will be available at the September GNO, is the Pack Mule. They're play on a Moscow Mule includes a splash of Grenadine to make that perfect Pack Red. I will definitely be trying one out on event night!

The brand is most notable for its modern architecture design style. Another characteristic of Aloft hotels is the naming of basic hotel amenities. For example, in each hotel, the swimming pool is referred to as "splash".
