About Fox Liquor Bar: Fox Liquor Bar is a subterranean drinking den from Ashley Christensen’s AC Restaurants that features classic and contemporary cocktails, a sprightly zero-proof program, and craveable bar snacks. What began in 2011 as one of Raleigh’s first craft cocktail bars has evolved into a well-loved and lived-in tavern-style bar that honors the spirit of its namesake and Ashley Christensen’s father, who passed away in 2021. The beverage menu offers excellent but approachable libations of the spirited and spirit-free varieties, while the food tips a hat to Beasley’s Chicken + Honey, Fox’s upstairs neighbor, and Chuck’s, which closed during the pandemic.
