Vita Vite Downtown Located in the Warehouse District, Vita Vite Downtown is Raleigh's southern art gallery, wine bar and event venue. Located in the Warehouse District, Vita Vite is downtown Raleigh's premiere wine bar and art gallery.

It features a variety of 20 carefully-selected wines, small plates and artwork from 10 local and regional artists. Vita Vite's 5,600 square foot space also includes an event venue (1250 square feet) that can host intimate groups of up to 80 people.

Come, Get Cozy and Relax.

For every girls’ night, date night, work session or just a little “me time,” we designed VV to be your spot. Curl up in a plush armchair near the fireplace, the outdoor swing, a gallery couch or at our bar. Unwind and enjoy a good glass of wine, craft beer, small plates and desserts. While you’re here, peruse our curated collection of southern art and goods from local artisans and vendors. Who knows? You might go home with an unexpected new treasure!

Thanx to the bartender at Vita Vite Downtown on West Hargett Street for telling me about this location to shoot the city of Raleigh at night!. Feel free to share the image.
Just saw your downtown neighbors (the former Goodwill store) is getting demolished. Are you guys safe from the demolition? And do you know if something is planned for the space or what? Thanks!
My favorite place to be whether with others or totally by myself!🍷
When is the North Hills location opening ?
Any New Year’s Eve plans at VV?
