New Restaurant “STIR” Prepares to Open in North Hills Shopping Center in June 2019

STIR to Bring Craft Cocktails, Artisanal Ice, an Oyster Bar and Fresh Local Food to Raleigh

(April 24, 2019) STIR, opening in North Hills this June, sets focus on the inventive, the artisan and the local. Partly known for their artisanal ice that has been hand-cut to complement each one of their imaginative craft cocktails, STIR is bringing a new feel to Raleigh’s cocktail and dining scene. STIR centers itself on fresh ingredients, creatively using what’s in season. STIR will collaborate with farmers and bakers within a 100 mile radius of Raleigh to support a made-from-scratch cocktail and food menu. The restaurant will be located across from the AC Hotel North Hills at 4242 Six Forks Road Suite 100, Raleigh, NC 27609.

STIR will have a unique offering of craft cocktails, premium oysters at a dedicated raw bar and a creative menu. STIR’s lunch, dinner, brunch and late night menus include an impressive array of dishes like Authentic Peruvian Ceviche, Chicken Picatta and Scallop & Shrimp White Cheddar Mac & Cheese. STIR is committed to bringing diners in Raleigh a new brunch experience on Saturdays and Sundays with a dedicated brunch menu including options like the Crab and Shrimp Benedict as well as Waffle Crusted Chicken, all of which pair with $1 mimosas. A brunch bar is included with entrees. In addition, STIR will offer background live entertainment at brunch.

A centerpiece to the new restaurant will be its innovative take on mixed drinks. STIR takes its craft cocktail game to the next level with highly trained bartenders, and the use of artisanal ice crafted in eight unique shapes. Frozen from the inside out with purified water and using a special process to avoid air pockets, the crystal clear craft ice ensures drinks do not get diluted and retain their chill and flavor profiles. With more than 350 spirits ranging from local Triangle distillers to hard-to-find international brands, STIR’s selection goes hand-in-hand with their wide assortment of fresh-pressed juices, local herbs, fresh fruits, bitters and house-made syrups. 

STIR expects to provide job opportunities to 150 local applicants. Interested residents may apply online at and hiring starts April 29th.

Community service is part of STIR’s culture. During STIR’s pre-opening week, funds will be raised in support of Oak City Cares, Wake County’s first multi-services hub for connecting individuals and families at risk of, or currently experiencing, homelessness to services.
