A couple of weekends ago, I packed my bags to head to AC Hotel in North Hills for a girls’ night with Angela, Courtney, and Glory. We had a fun night planned with happy hour at Level7 Rooftop, dinner at the Capital Grille, and then a morning of breakfast at Happy + Hale, and shopping at Copper Penny, Kendra Scott, and South Moon Under. Here is my guide to the ultimate girls’ night in North Hills.
I am a huge fan of the AC Hotel for a staycation in Raleigh. North Hills has so much to offer without having to leave the area. David and I stayed there for my birthday in January, and it was great to head back for a night out with girl friends. We checked in at the AC Hotel, and unwound a little bit from the work day before heading up to Level7 for happy hour. One of my favorite amenities is the rain shower. That is a definite master bathroom upgrade goal of mine in our ranch.
After getting settled in and changed, we headed up to Level7 Rooftop Bar for tapas and a cocktail. We ordered cheese ravioli, charcuterie, and the Margherita flatbread.

After happy hour, we walked across the street to The Capital Grille for dinner. It was our first time at the restaurant and, y’all, it did not disappoint. The cocktail menu is on a tablet with full descriptions of the selections, the service was outstanding, and the food was delicious. Courtney is a vegetarian and Angela is a pescatarian, and the Capital Grille had something to fit both of their tastes. Glory and I decided to order a few small plates to share, including truffle fries, lobster macaroni & cheese, and the wedge salad.
After a lovely evening, we headed back to the AC Hotel to turn in for the night. Saturday morning, we woke up and headed to Happy + Hale for breakfast. Courtney & I were craving their avocado toast and a good smoothie. Angela ordered a veggie breakfast wrap and Glory ordered a poke bowl.
After breakfast, we headed over for a little shopping. Our first stop was Copper Penny, which is relatively new to North Hills. There are so many great pieces with an amazing variety of both classic and on-trend pieces. It was such a fun environment to shop and try on clothes.
Our next stop was Kendra Scott so we could check out their new winter collection. I am obsessed with these earrings that I wore Friday night and this mood ring was so fun.
Our last stop was at South Moon Under. I was so excited when Raleigh got a South Moon Under because I loved their online shop. They have such an awesome selection of home goods, clothing, and accessories.
It was an amazing time exploring one of my favorite spots in Raleigh with friends for the weekend. Be sure to check out North Hills for the upcoming holiday season as well. Whether it’s shopping, a dinner out with friends, or a place for out of town guests to stay, North Hills has it all.
