Playful, dynamic, and bold – Nightingale is the first of its kind when it comes to dining concepts in the Holly Springs suburb of Raleigh, North Carolina. In this 150-seat restaurant, tables are thoughtfully arranged throughout the space, bathed in the warm glow of golden lighting and sectioned off into cozy and dimmed enclaves. Nightingale is also ideal for private events, with a convenient event space and a dedicated team of mixologists which make this location a premier destination to try inventive cocktails with friends.

Nightingale pays homage to Dorothy Draper’s Greenbrier Resort by embodying true maximalism through its six different floral wallpapers, 14 different paint colors and six whimsical, upholstered seating arrangements scattered throughout the space. Each of these colorful texture-rich design components perfectly compliment the natural wood finishes that pop up throughout the space. Guests are welcome to enjoy southern inspired small plates, served family-style, either inside or on Nightingale’s covered patio. The patio boasts a welcoming atmosphere, a covered seating area to protect against the elements and a double-sided bar to keep the craft cocktails flowing.

The Nightingale project is a testament to the idea that spectacular dining experiences start with the quality of the food and are further enhanced by the space’s character and ambience. By blending classic yet retro forms with unexpected patterns, textures and fixtures, Nightingale will add value to the surrounding community by offering a lively escape from predictable strip mall food joints.
