I went there for a house/techno event being held on the ground floor. Only problem is that people can't meander between the three floors Solas has to offer. I would've loved to explore.

Had a special event at Solas! Food was catered in and missed the mark. Understaffed...won't go back. Staff was very indifferent. This was unfortunate we were excited to have a high energy event. People left early! Lessons from losses!

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.

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.
