Far from the McMansions of suburbia, these exquisite estates were built by prominent architects with classic designs showcasing Colonial and Georgian sensibilities. The neighborhood doesn't only cater to luxury buyers, however. Charming bungalows and modern single-family homes with lower price tags can also be found in Hayes Barton. Glenwood Avenue, which crosses through the Five Points intersection, forms the eastern border of the neighborhood and offers a quick route to the city center.

Where to Eat

Hayes Barton Café & Dessertery serves classy American cuisine and scrumptious desserts in retro diner setting. NOFO is another destination for Southern fare, offering daily blue plates, weekend brunch, and more. The gourmet pies at Lilly's Pizza are also quite popular, as are the options for international cuisine in the area.

What You'll See

You'll see locals strolling the tree-lined sidewalks, visiting with neighbors, and admiring each other's elegant homes. Antique collectors and history buffs are especially drawn to the Five Points. While this business district enjoys modern amenities, it is largely free of chain stores and suburban trappings. Instead, a quaint, small-town aesthetic is proudly worn by the rows of family-owned businesses, despite their location just a few miles away from the high-rises of the city center.

Friday Night Fun

Sit down for a movie with a glass of wine at The Rialto Theatre. This vintage theater retains the ambiance of yesteryear and screens foreign, indie, and classic films, including Rocky Horror Picture Show every other Friday. After the movie, head next door to The Point for a beer and a late-night snack. Of course, Downtown Raleigh is always a short distance away from Hayes Barton when residents are looking for a new culinary adventure.

The Perfect Sunday

Peruse the shops at the Five Points for vintage treasures or enjoy an easy-going afternoon at one of the oldest amusement parks in America, Pullen Park. Fun for all ages, this park features a train ride, a carousel, paddle boats, playgrounds, and plenty of open space. Downtown also offers plenty of Sunday activities, such as the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, North Carolina Museum of History, and North Carolina State Capitol.
