This place is seriously adorable! Loved the wine and cocktailselection and they have some delicious sandwiches! Would be a great spot to have a girls night. It’s a little far from where I live but reccomend to anyone in the area. Follow me on Insta for more local food recs: @nikkidrinkscraft

So, I checked out Aboutaperitif in Durham, NC, with my sis and aunt. The cocktails were seriously good, and we dug into this awesome charcuterie board. The place had a cool vibe, not too fancy, just right. The service was spot-on, making it a chill night out. My sis and aunt totally loved it, so if you're up for a laid-back good time, Aboutaperitif is the spot!

Came here for a date night with the wifey. It was a good location and the cocktails were great. We ordered a shareable sampler, desserts, and few drinks that was delicious. Food was above average and goes well with drinks. Now the desserts and cocktails are the reason we came. Their desserts were great! I really liked the lemon creme brulee and the banana ice cream dessert (sorry don't remember the name). It's a great spot if you're near UHILL. It has a good amount of space outside, right in front of Gizmo brewery and BBs chicken so it's a great place to take kids as well.

The husband and I recently had a late night date here. The drinks were really good and so were the deserts. The tiramisu is definitely boozy 😉 A wee bit pricy but the ambience, timing and offerings were really good.
