I really like the atmosphere and proximity to east Durham. Unfortunately went on an off night. No red wine, no mixer for specialty cocktail, and no champagne for aperol spritz 😞 hope they are better stocked next time.

Have been here twice already! Great atmosphere, strong drinks, and delicious BBQ next door. Can’t wait to see Proximity open up the fall as well!

First time this past weekend and loved it! The cocktails were sooo good, and unbelievable price for them too! The vibe is just right, low key and well decorated. The patio is a huge plus. Great service and friendly staff. Will definitely be back!

Such a vibe. Beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. Inexpensive, well-executed cocktails and solid beer list. New favorite bar in Durham.

Tasty cocktails, inviting staff and a really cool vibe inside and in their courtyard. You can feel the care that was put into every detail. I’m so excited that East Durham has a neighborhood bar!

Really cool spot for beer or cocktails in East Durham, don’t have to go downtown for a good drink!
