Great bar to grab a beer in Durham. At a certain point of the night everyone is here.

I really enjoyed this place. It was open and when I went it wasn't very crowded. The drinks were very well priced and the variety was good. I got to try so old favorites and some new things as well. For big groups (more than 6) it's kind of difficult, but there was a section that I didn't go into and maybe they had seating there.

The outdoors of the place are nice, you can see the sunset with a beer in your hand, having a really pretty and relaxing moment. Also the beer is cheap!!

Love this place. One of our favorites in Durham. No frills, just good old school bar with good prices and great bar tenders.

Great place to explore. Games, craft beer, and a little bougie but lighthearted.

This was My weeknight spot until I went the other day and my beer had the horrible taste of dish detergent. And the bar tender gave me a hot glass straight out of the sink for a tap beer. I always leave a nice top so I was a little taken back by it.

Great outdoor space, friendly bartenders, and great music. $3 draft on Wednesdays are what keep me going back.

Typical dive. Bartender became progressively friendlier throughout the night. Cheap drinks. Serves food (but I didn't get any).

Pretty chill spot, has a weird faux dive bar feel to it. Dogs are welcomed there which is great and there's Cornhole and bocce ball outside.

This is my favorite Dirham bar. Its welcoming to everyone, but has that look like you dont belong unless you know that you belong. So it keeps crowds a good size. It's got great bar games, and solid service.

Had a great time with a group of friends here over the weekend. Good drink prices, prompt and friendly staff, great music, pool table, bocce ball, and darts. What else do you need?

This is my favorite bar in Durham. The decor and ambiance are great! Being able to drink outside on the patio is a nice touch as well. There are a few other great bars on the same street so location is good for a night out drinking.

One of the best bars in Durham. Great outdoor patio with an outdoor bar.
