Champions Bars - NC State

Opening our doors in 1998, Champions Bars is one of Raleigh’s oldest billiard club and sports bar.

A mainstay in the NC State area, Champions Bars brings together all walks of life for a full bar, billiards, live entertainment, and of course, the best bartenders in town. With drink specials daily and a front seat to any big-screen TV you want, we’re built for game days, dance parties, and catching up on quality time with friends. And as a locally-owned and operated business, you can consider us your home away from home in Raleigh, North Carolina.
