16 Princess St, Wilmington, NC 28401


Trolley Pub is the ultimate way to experience the Port City, as you pedal in the open air through historic Downtown Wilmington. The area is known for its quaint 19th century architecture, wide variety of bars and pubs, bumping nightlife and trendy restaurants. There’s something for everyone here, from hole-in-the-wall watering holes to rooftop dance clubs.


Tavern Law, with its old world charm and Cheers-like atmosphere, is a place where you instantly feel at home. Run and operated by the three local owners, here you’ll experience 16 taps serving local taps and the friendliest atmosphere in Wilmington.

Everyone needs to experience Slainte, the Wilmington staple Irish pub. Famously, one year it was the top seller of Jameson in the entire state of North Carolina. The bar offers a great selection of Irish and British brews, awesome bartenders and plenty of shenanigans.

The Husk is one of the most popular bars in downtown, with a large indoor bar, a patio bar in the back, lots of drink selections and specials and lively nightlife.
