Vita Vite, Raleigh’s wine bar and Southern art gallery, is launching its second location nestled in North Hills. Slated to open in late spring 2018, Vita Vite Midtown will unveil an welcoming, comfortable wine bar complemented by craft beers, small plates, Southern art and local goods for purchase.

“We love being a part of the Raleigh community, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to expand to North Hills,” said Lindsay Rice, founder and owner of Vita Vite. “Vita Vite Midtown will be a relaxed environment that is comfortable and welcoming to everyone.”

Couched in a traditional-meets-rustic aesthetic, Vita Vite Midtown will feature a selection of international wines and local craft beers complemented by a menu of locally sourced small plates and desserts. Approximately 6,000 square feet, the space will showcase found materials and a mezzanine level with outdoor seating and bars on both levels. Plush couches and fireplaces will invite guests to relax, unwind and enjoy a good glass of wine in a cozy atmosphere. Vita Vite Midtown will also display a curated collection of southern art along with goods from local artisans and vendors.

“We are very excited to welcome Vita Vite to North Hills,” said John Kane, CEO of Kane Realty Corporation. “We are confident their unique environment will be well received and most successful in Midtown.”

Rice opened Vita Vite Downtown in December 2015, and within 11 short months, the wine bar secured recognition by national YELP leaders as one of the Top 100 Yelp businesses in North America. Rice has also garnered acclaim as an entrepreneur and business leader with accolades such as the Women in Business and the 40 Under 40 awards from the Triangle Business Journal. Vita Vite Midtown will be located in the Park Central building. For more information, visit or call 919-803-3156.
