Aries has only been open a few months and it seems to hit on something that was missing in Raleigh bars. The music is different every night, it varies from the good 80's music to ska to whatever CDs people bring in and they always have great drink specials. The bartenders have made up their own martini and drink list, plus they included the standards. There is ample seating, the bar is massive and they have enough bartenders on a weekend night so that you are not kept waiting forever. They are always coming up with new ideas to keep people coming back including Pajama Party's, wine tastings and more. Parts of the bar are also available for rental.
