Hands down, the best bar in Durham. I can't tell you why, you'll just have to realize it for yourself.

Fun spot downtown with an eclectic retro vibe. Great service from Reece and Lacey, who keep the drinks and tunes flowing. Music varies, but each night has a theme. Large outdoor space with a bar, tables, and a bocce ball court.

my boyfriend and i love surf club, we go a lot of our free weekends and sometimes weekday evenings! however, last night i was turned away and told the bar was “23 and up”. i just turned 21 in january, and theyve let me in every single time. i have a polaroid photo of myself and friends on the bar wall, so it was pretty annoying and odd when i was turned away and told “youre way too young”. if my ID shows i’m 21, the legal drinking age, i want to know why i’m not allowed. genuine curiosity! other than last night, surf club has always been super fun! we meet great people, the music is always good, drinks are delicious and bartenders are super kind!

Awesome hangout spot. We went when it wasn't crowded and could actually enjoy a conversation / drinks. Would go back

Great pub with a relaxed vibe and space to be comfortable. Good selection of drinks and games. Exceptional outdoor space, including bocce lanes!

Great vibes and decent variety of drink options. The layout is great and accomodations those who want to sit out and chat, dance with a DJ, or play a variety of games (indoor or outdoor). My favorite is bocce ball if you get there early enough to grab a spot. Sometimes it can take a while to get a drink, but the staff are always pretty friendly.

A fun place to hang out on a still summer night. Bocce courts, a great outdoor seating area and an incredibly unique use of space.
Kotuku is a vibe worth checking out.
Further, I appreciate the 23+ age limit raising the average maturity of their patrons.

Liked the inside outside bar, and the couches in the pool room. Large open outside area and bocchi (sp) ball. Had a great time here. Friendly crowd.
