The annex is an absurd place. DJ is absolutely killing it and specialty cocktails are very interesting and mostly delicious. The dance floor isn't super crowded which leaves me ample room to get ziggy with it. Its always a party in the annex. Once I ordered a dirty martini and it was disgusting - maybe thats a me problem.

I visited this bar the last Saturday in July I think and I thought what a cool place with good priced drinks and a good DJ played music from early 2000s hip hop/ top hits. Recently on 8/13, I brought about 12 people with me and was celebrating my 40th bday, the music was not the same, no hip hop or pop really, maybe it was some 80s music. They had a different DJ that night who could only tell me he didn't have a big selection of hip hop music, after a few minutes, we left. Good thing we had fun on our party bus. I would try this place again, because it is a good vibe, just would see which DJ will be there.

Vibes & Dj were great! Drinks are good but they don’t have change for cash so bring your card or small bills. I would also advise to bring a water bottle because I asked the bartender for cup of water 7 times and she ignored me and never gave it to me. I was there earlier that day and the day time bartenders are way friendlier with Great customer service!

Okay...the food is AMAZING!!! I had the Salmon with mashed potatoes & roasted Brussel sprouts...it was beyond delicious. A side note, IF YOU WANT FOOD GO TO THE BAR. They don't tell you that if you sit at a cocktail booth around the perimeter you can't order in that area. You have to be at the bar. Other than that...I had no issues! Will I go back?! Yes!!!! I took away a star only because I have to be at the bar to get food.

Had a great experience, the bar area is super cute and the cocktails were amazing. Our bartender was Hannah, who was the best. She has wonderful recommendations and was incredibly friendly, 10/10 recommend just going to visit her

Really cool atmosphere. Walk in to Bar Virgile and immediately turn to the left. You can even order off a limited BV menu (namely, the burger 😋), but you have to sit at the bar to do so.

Decent drinks, great staff, very hipster. Floors were so sticky it took my show off.

I've been here twice now & it is such a great spot for drinks. We went Saturday & due to the large size of our party we went right at opening. We had the place to ourselves for a little while. It was so nice & the drinks were fantastic!

Great drinks, wonderful atmosphere. Literally an annex off of Bar Virgil. Go in the main door and turn left to go down the stairs to annexe. Maddie was a fantastic and personable bartender!

Durham was very quite for a Thursday night in December with 60 degree late night weather, but Annexe was a nice private bar we did t know existed. Bar Virgile was our intention but I'm glad we found this underground place nonetheless.
