Circa 1888

Circa 1888 Circa 1888 was renovated to create comfortable places to gather, drink, listen to music, play pool and watch sunsets, while highlighting the historic buildings beautiful features.

Nestled at the end of W. Davie St. in downtown Raleigh, this 19th century bar offers high-end pool, an extensive craft beer menu and early era cocktails. Our wine list pairs perfectly with any palate and our enclosed patio is cozy and perfect for relaxing while watching the sunset. At the entrance, the brick and mortar archway lead to the antique bar built in 1888 in Brooklyn NY. With modern twist

I am truly disheartened about the predatory behavior inflicted on women. This should not happen anywhere, especially in an environment that Brendan and I created. After Brendan passed away in 2018, I was struggling to figure out the ins and outs of the businesses he left behind and my world without him. As soon as I had a handle on the day-to-day dealings and I learned about Gary’s behavior, I fired him. There is no place anywhere for blatant disrespect. It will never be tolerated at Landmark or Circa 1888. For that you can be certain. Linda O'Reilly

Starting today Circa 1888 will be selling gift certificates. If you are interested, please PM me, Linda O'Reilly. Don't forget to send me your address. Venmo @Linda-OReilly-0.
Big thanks and stay safe out there. Big Hugs...

Today would usually be a great day at our bars, a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Instead, we will be closing our doors along with the rest of the bars and restaurants (except for takeout) in North Carolina until further notice. We wish things didn’t have to be this way but we know it’s the right thing to do. We are in unprecedented times which call for unprecedented measures. We will get through this together!

Thank you for all of your support leading up to this inevitable move by the Governor.

We love you guys and feel this along with our whole community.

“May the roof above us never fall in and may friends gathered below never fall out.”
