This place is a hidden gem. Large selection of reasonably priced beer and wine, clean and welcoming atmosphere. Made two mini terrariums and had a blast. Awesome place to go with significant other, friends or family! Can’t wait to go again to make an etched wine glass!

Awesome place to sit and hang with friends. We brought a little and he had a great time, even did a craft. Great beers and ciders. Range of crafts in both time required and difficulty. We can't wait to go back.

This made for such a fun night! The variety of crafts meant that everyone in our group was able to find a craft they would enjoy. The staff was really friendly and helpful. I live in Raleigh but we will definitely be making a trip back. The only thing that could make it better would be a food truck. They are still pretty new but hopefully they will get to the point where food trucks will be able to visit the location. If you like crafts, if you like drafts, you should absolutely go!

Went with a group of girlfriends last night. Wonderful atmosphere. Very comfortable. Great selection of crafts (and beverages, even for those of us who don't drink). Friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again.

The new "Crafts & Drafts" place is really nice. I stopped in at 7:30 on a Monday, and there were folks at the bar, folks doing craft things. The atmosphere is really nice. There were folks of all sorts, colors, ages and vibes. There were 8 beers on tap, and a bunch of bottles and beers available. Man, the area behind the place is huge. If you go by, just know there's like a football field worth of parking out back. There's a private room, nice, cuz that always comes up. The crafts look interesting. It's a big, clean room...staff was very welcoming. Might have to have a date night....

Came here on Halloween and it was lovely. The bar has a great selection and the crafts are very DIY but there was someone nearby if help was required. They had a large variety of crafts and the venue itself is spacious and clean. Definitely had fun and will definitely be back.

It was my first time visiting this nice bar/craft place, although I'm not a fan of crafts, the place is cozy, great selection of bottles beers, very friendly staff and very clean. It's a nice place to go have a few drinks, get comfy and have a long talk with friends without being rush. I got the pimiento cheese and pita (which it was very good). They focus on selling local beer which I really like, they also have wine. Overall it was a great experience. Would highly recommend visiting.

So happy to see the success and growth of this business! I was there just after the opening and to see them weather the storm of the pandemic and continue to show variety and rotation in their craft and beer selection is so dope. Female owned and ran, happy to support this local gem!

This is place is a gem. Come here- you won’t be disappointed! We live in the neighborhood and love to pop over on a weeknight for new & interesting drafts and chill vibes. My favorite crafts have been the wine-glass etching, Christmas wreaths, card-making, and ornaments. Also the staff here are absolutely wonderful❤️

Great, chill vibe! Love the tables and umbrellas out back to give us safe crafting space given COVID. Loved the seasonal drinks on tap and the cute variety of crafts. Will be certainly coming back because my cross stitch certainly is going to take me longer than 2 hours!

As part of the LGBTQIA+ community I feel very safe and welcomed here! My wife and I came for a date day and did some wood burning. Super fun, super friendly, super awesome! Their gender neutral bathrooms provide feminine hygiene products and entertaining signs to look at while you do your business. Definitely coming back for another date day with my wife! 10/10, will be recommending to everyone.

I planned our first fun outing for our teacher and staff and Crafts and Drafts was recommended to me by our Art Teacher. She is a N Durham resident, so naturally she was inclined to support local businesses, which is our practice at work and personally. We had 13 people and we had 2 reserved tables. I was able to secure a pp rate which included 1 of 3 craft choices ( this was so helpful!) And 2 drink tickets. Setting up this event was seamless. The owner is flexible and kind. The C&D staff was helpful and engaging as well. The crafts were fun to create and not overwhelming, even to our non-crafty friends...this spot is fantastic for all levels and is about an experience in as much as making an item for your home. The selection of drinks was robust and diverse, from IPAs to Pink Lemonade Mimosas ( that would be my favorite of the evening). Lots of room to spread out. I also brought snacks for us, but they do have some small plate items. The staff was thrilled with the first fun night out and so was I as the one who wanted everyone to bond and start the school year with some fun!

I love this bar and concept! They have a great selection of drinks on tap and fun atmosphere for larger groups. The bottle shop has a large selection of beers, ciders and other alcoholic beverages to satisfy everyone. The perfect place to visit if you’re meeting up with friends who have varied tastes. The patio out back is also super nice and dog-friendly!!

Sat out back for a bit, then inside. Got to pet the sweetest pup. Drank multiple half pours- my favorite because there's more opportunities to taste! And walked out with a large purchase from the bottle shop!

Been for the bottle shop multiple times, hadn't stuck around before. It's a lovely place, pet friendly, lots of space. There isn't a large quantity of beers, but it's always new and interesting. A really good place to go for a unique beer

Love this hidden jewel in North Durham! Always delicious, interesting beers on tap. Also lots of great local options to go (cold case too). Very knowledgeable staff! And that's just the beers. The crafts are fun for couples, groups or families. Definitely worth your time to stop by and check this place out.

Great little bottle shop almost exclusively featuring NC beers as well as 8 taps, numerous bottles and cans for on-site consumption, and small crafty things to make to keep you occupied as you drinky drink. Dogs are allowed away from the craft tables and there is a nice outdoor space as well. Bringing or ordering food is welcomed. Very friendly staff!

Such a North Durham gem! Very cute little bar that serves really good beer and wine. They also have a small bottle shop to take a 6-pack home with you. I try to come here to pick up beer and wine to go because I hate going all the way into the grocery store just for that. I have not tried the in-house crafting yet but every time I go inside, there are people crafting and it looks like fun. They also have a great outdoor space with heaters. Yay North Durham!

I always love visiting Crafts & Drafts for a safe time to craft and try some new drinks. Virginia and her team make me feel welcome and I know that I am safe while visiting during the pandemic.

Staff is incredibly friendly. They have great project options, the indoor space is open and inviting, there's an outdoor area in the back, and of course the beer options are good too. I came here once pre-pandemic and then went on Halloween for pumpkin carving. If they still have the chai cider on tap, definitely try it.

I had such a fun time at Crafts and Drafts! I opted for the wood burning and made a beautiful mountain landscape that is currently hanging in my living room. This is the perfect place to unwind with a small group of friends while trying some of the best beer in NC. They regularly update their beer selection too! The You owner and staff make you feel right at home. You can't beat that 🙂

Had a good time! Super chill environment. Great space to get creative and have some beer/wine. I liked all of the craft options, I went with the paint your own glass for $25. Would recommend! Fun for going out with friends. ✨

This is possibly our favorite place to visit in Durham. We love to come and craft, or just bring our dogs and relax at the bar or out on the patio. The staff are so friendly and they have great options for both crafts AND drafts!

My partner and I came after Crafts and Draft popped up on our Google maps. They have a large selection of beers and numerous crafts to choose from (on tap and in a can). We did the glass sketch, which is very fun and only $40 for a couple. There are a good amount of stencils to choose from. The folks (Kerry and Stephanie) working we’re so personable and kind. Stephanie checked in on us to make sure we were good throughout the craft process and Kerry have a great overview when we first got in of what all we could do. Finally, the No Bill taco truck outside is delicious and they bring the food to you, which is a plus. We will definitely be back!!

A really fun and easy Friday night date idea! They have an amazing selection of beer, including drafts, and some good wines to choose from. The owner was very helpful with craft selection and the tables gave plenty of space to really get creative. Excellent concept!

Super fun if you want to try your hand at something you haven't tried before, like glass etching, all while sipping a local craft beer. I chose to paint a wooden cut out of NC. You can bring in your own food or crafts, we brought in an entire meal to enjoy and stayed for 4 hours!

Had an impromptu birthday hang out here with a group of 10 friends—staff was super accommodating when I made the reservation only 24 hrs in advance. Great beers and great crafts! Definitely check out for a unique, low key activity with friends
