historyIconFor nearly 10 years, the Wolves’ Den was one of the more popular watering holes along Hillsborough Street.

But on this day in 1974, the Wolves’ Den closed its doors to customers because of a significant increase in the rent, from $219 to $600 per month. It was the end of a nine-year run that began when the Wolves’ Den opened on Sept. 11, 1964.

“The establishment, in it’s nine years of existence, had established a loyal clientele composed of college students and local residents,” read an account in the Technician. “The Wolves’ Den, with an array of pennants collected from colleges and universities across the country, and a juke box with several old favorites, succeeded in establishing a quiet collegiate atmosphere that attracted the State students.”
