Solas appears to be changing. The restaurant portion is not working out, the bar dance scene fortunately still is. Yes cover is $10. Essentially you are paying for the privilege of being in the club, no value adds. Dance floor is small. Second floor is all pay to play tables which can cost $250-$400 for one bottle of Liquor of...

My cousin, best friend and I went out to Solas on a Saturday night and it was rocking!! I thought it was kind of weird that you had to sign in before entering the club but it makes sense and was no big deal. $10 cover but three floors of jammin music and bars! It was packed and people were... More

We attended upstairs for a business meeting. Great cocktails and the buffet food for the event was fantastic. Love their Prime Rib! I hope that we get to go back for more meetings there!

Taking the top three floors of this downtown building, you can eat wonderful food, enjoy a vibrant bar scene or dance into the morning hours. All with flowing curtains and elegant seating and a beautiful view.

Multiple floors with an outside area as well. Paid the 10 dollar admission fee to get in, but the dance floor was too small to do anything. One very small drink cost 8 dollars. Went to the top/outside area and the music was louder than it was on the inside of the bar so you couldn't hear anything, which included... More

We didnt eat at solas. But we went to the club, it was supposed to be classy. It was just like any other club. It was very crowded and the dance floor is tiny.

Loved the two levels and different venues with the same location. Disliked the extremely small dance floor.

We had our company party here and it was an all-around good experience. We started dinner in the front area of the restaurant, it was a nice comfortable space. The food was good, especially the salmon and mac and cheese. The desserts didn't match dinner. We had great, friendly bartender/s, one looked like Stifler from American Pie- Hello! Continued on...

Description
Solas Dine|Lounge|Rooftop. Unlike any other establishment in the Triangle, Solas offers three levels of dining and entertainment. Solas has a wonderful outdoor patio flowing into a warm inviting main dining room and bar area. The 2nd level transitions to an ultra-lounge with stunning decor, two private dining rooms, and low-profile seating around a dance floor that peeks into the first floor dining room. The Solas roof deck is an oasis escape with relaxing private lounge areas overlooking Glenwood South. The Solas ambiance is perfect for all your needs, from a first date to a business dinner in our private dining room to a relaxing evening with cocktails and champagne on the rooftop.
