Both happy hours before and after the event will be held at the Hibernian Pub on Glenwood South.  The Hibernian is located across the street from Devolve, the event venue space that will be holding ETS2018.  Hibernian address: 311 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh NC 27063.  We will be upstairs in the patio area and will hand out tickets for free NC craft beer and wine.

Plenty of dinner options are close by and walking distance.



We recommend staying at the Downtown Hampton Inn, which is located in the Glenwood South district of Raleigh, about 3 blocks from the venue and happy hour location.  There are lots of bars and restaurants nearby, including the largest beer garden in the world, believe it or not.


Flowing craft beer, great food and wine, and even a nightlife dance scene!  All this and more in the Glenwood South district of downtown Raleigh.  Some of the happening spots that are walking distance from the ETS2018 venue include:

  • Raleigh Beer Garden – The world’s largest draft beer selection, with over 250 beers on tap!
  • Vidrio – One of the nicest restaurants in Raleigh, serving octopus and other exotic mediterranean dishes
  • Hibernian Pub – This place burned down a few years ago and was rebuilt even better than before.  If you like Guinness, this is your place.
  • Alchemy – If you are into dancing and nightclubs, this is your place.
