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.

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!

We had our corporate event at Solas. Drinks were great along with excellent service from staff. We had the taco bar and it was just ok.

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 choice and one bottle of champagne. Honestly not worth it for this girl. I hope they figure out what they want to be and tweak it and get it right. Good Luck Solas.

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 genuinely having a great time. The line was long but we were in in less than 10 minutes. Drama free, smoke free, violence free!! The men were very generous in buying drinks. The bartenders were fast and on point. Very clean bathrooms. And ample enough space to get away from the loud music and sit in a comfortable chair. Not much of a VIP section but it works. Balcony gives an amazing view of the nightlife on Glenwood. I will be back every trip!
