Convenient to Old North Durham, Old Five Points; W. Geer, North, & Foster Sts. Beer, wine, & liquor. Small inside, but there's additional space outside & in back. Pool table & a video game (or 2?). Lotta industry people. Inexpensive and easy to drop in. Adjacent parking lot is often full: plan around that. This business is adjacent to a residential area, so try not to be a jerk; let people chill. Mostly bar seating, but a few bar tables. *Very* light food. There's a city park behind the building and parking lot. Tattoo parlor and beer/wine store/bar in same building. Convenient to Hutchins Garage (pizza/drinks). Tip your bartender, please. Near Northstar & TROSA's ex-school building. Wear a mask until you need to open your mouth.

Love the back patio, and the sunday morning hatch burritos are a weekend staple

Best dive bar in Durham right now. Good atmosphere if you are looking for relaxing and authentic (vs pricey and showy). Don't miss the outside tables when the weather is suitable. If you can be there at sundown, pay attention to the massive chimney swift (bird) colony that comes out en masse to feed.

Cold beer, laid back vibes, personable bar tender....what more can you ask for in a neighborhood watering hole!

If you love mom's creations, you have to come here and try the Frito bag selections! Love, love love this place. There's an outside courtyard behind the bar area where you can bring your dog and hang out also.

A great atmosphere to hang out with your friends! I love the outdoor area in the back as well. Got to try the snacks the bar carries last night and we thoroughly enjoyed them. Our hot dogs were rad and you can also get frito bags topped with nacho cheese, pimento cheese, and/or other toppings like chili. We really enjoyed the snacks and our drinks! Also, every time I come here I hear Parquet Courts on the playlist, which is very cool.

I was only here briefly but it is a nice bar to end the night. Beautiful back patio area with Chinese lanterns providing the whole backlot with red gentle ambient light.

My kind of bar. Just here to relax and have a drink and chat with the neighbors and the friendly bartender. Has bar food and a good selection of beer on tap and everything else. And a pool table.

No frills place that is wonderful if you just want a drink and some time to think. Wonderful backyard as well.

Was a vendor for an event here with my business Graffiti Panda. Owner is super nice. A great & safe space on the weekend to go eat, chill, hangout and meet new people!!

Awesome hole in the wall bar with a snazzy lit back patio for smoking and just outside-ness.

Pretty cool bar. I was visiting family in Durham and came over this spot. Good reasonablely priced drinks and friendly stuff.

Liked the look of the place online. Had some good beers and cocktails. It was smaller than I expected and I didn't get to check out the back yard, but it was a neat little hangout.

I’m partial to calling the bar closest to my house “the best bar,” but in Accordion Club’s case, that proximity is incidental. It really is a great dive bar: cheap drinks, fun people, great back/outdoor space, and hot dogs. To go beer fridge, and some take and bake food items also a nice thing to grab on your way out. Burritos on Sundays are great too.

Great little dump dirty dive with a downstairs out back. Perfect for some last call action.

Can’t complain about the late night hot dogs here.
