If you think downtown is bad, then try going to Jacksonville of Fayetteville. IF you don't want to go downtown then choose another area, Mayfair, Wrightsville. Keep in mind 30 years ago NOBODY would go downtown. Who do we have to thanks for cleaning up the area? The bars. Who else is going to pay $10,000-$15,000 a month in rent for buildings that are crumbling, and that barely make code?
Try not to bite the hands that feeds, my friend. When the bars go, the revenue goes, and the jobs, and the tourists, then we will have our ole red light district back. I am sure thats what you want right?
Out of the 50+ bars downtown there are at least a handful that fit you genre. Try out some of those before you group them all together.
