Red Hat opened its doors in the summer of 2010, and since it's become a beacon for live entertainment in the Southeast. Located right on the outskirts of downtown Raleigh, it's just steps from a hub of bars, clubs, galleries and restaurants. The venue holds about 5,500 in a mix of lawn seating and traditional seating.
What's a good summer concert without a good beer? Not as fun. Thankfully, Red Hat stocks local brews from Lonerider and Carolina Brewery, as well as food from Empire Eats.
