Staff are friendly, drinks are GREAT and atmosphere is cozy. Make sure you take the gravel path down behind the Durham Distillery to find this place. There are a few parking spots back there too so you don’t have to walk like we initially did. Highly recommend for a nice date night!

Love love loved this place!! If you love quality time or just want to go somewhere where you can have a great conversation, this is a great spot! Loved the vibe and the cocktails here!! The Durham Distillery is right above it where you can purchase bottles of gin that are used to make the cocktails!

Had drinks on the patio last night after dinner—lively atmosphere, many friend groups, excellent service even though it was ABUZZ on a Friday night (water immediately brought, order prompt, check prompt, all by different servers working together well). G&T crisp, bright, and not overly fragrant or botanical. Partner ordered a Corpse Reviver, which they enjoyed. 10/10 lovely spot for drinks on a night out in Durham. Parking behind or on the street nearby.

This blink and you’ll miss it bar is definitely one not to miss. Look for the beautiful mural on the side of the building and you’ll be pointed to the parking lot located in the back. The entrance is also in the back just a quick walk from the parking lot. Walking up you’re greeted by a cozy outdoor patio seating area complete with wall of string lights giving it a warm glow. Walking into the bar you quickly realize it’s more lounge than bar. The chairs are over stuffed and comfortable. The walls have banquette seating and each table is intimately lit with touch lamps. Open the menu, you’ll be greeted with specialty gin martini cocktails. Their liquor speciality is Conniption gin which makes for great martinis. The bleu cheese and bacon stuffed olives add something deliciously special to the Dirty. Keep flipping and you’re greeted with pages of bourbon offerings. Corpse Reviver is truly heaven for the bourbon connoisseur. Aptly named, this lounge truly does revive and invigorate. Whether you’re wanting a quiet cocktail or drinks with friends, Corpse Reviver should be on everyone’s list of bars to visit and enjoy. Cheers.

I was already a big fan of the Conniption Gin made by the distillery, so I knew it would love the cocktails at Corpse Reviver, but they still blew me away! The martinis are made to perfection and something as simple as a gin and tonic is elevated to a whole new level here. The service is quick and the lighting, vibe, and music are all on point as well.
