Let's just say there wasn't an empty seat in the house on a Thursday night. Nuff said Ok but seriously Board games galore Trivia night The music was at a PERFECT level to where no one had to tell to hear each other 10/10 will be going again

This is my favorite bar in Durham. It’s quirky, it’s wonky, it’s fun. The mead and beer selection is great, the people who own/work here are greater! One time I came here for karaoke night and I left with the biggest smile and a bunch of new friends. Another time I came here and I met 6 dogs. Another time I came here and I met a guy who makes clay sculptures. I highly recommend if you like relaxed, inclusive places with good vibes!

Great selection of bevereges and their collaboration mead with Joe Van Gogh is delicious! Very friendly people and a great place to just hang out and maybe play some of the many boardgames in their collection!

I attended karaoke night here recently and I was so impressed! The dj was great and had tons of songs to choose from. What really stood out to me was how friendly, welcoming and supportive everyone was. It was my first time trying karaoke and I’ll definitely be back!

Moon Dog Meadery and Bottle Shop is an awesome place to relax and unload your mind. There is a wide selection local brews, and an incredible selection of games. It is a great place to get to know others or relax with yourself. I also love the variety of nightly events. I live 3 hours awy, but hope to come back multiple times!

Friendly place with festive decor and nice community atmosphere! Bring the dogs, the kids, anyone at all will feel welcome here. The homemade mead is delicious and they have a large selection of beverages in the bottle shop area. There is no kitchen, but you are welcome to bring your own food and area restaurants are plentiful. The meadery hosts events such as live music, trivia, comedy shows, and games nights, so there is always something going on. Check it out for your next fun outing!

Awesome mix of local beer, wine and cider. The mead was great and the outdoor space has tons of potential. Plus dogs, so of course it’s awesome

Friendly atmosphere all around. I am not a big drinker but there is quite a variety here so you can find something to enjoy. Unique events so far, this establishment is really something special. And of course, love having dogs in there!

A welcome addition to Durham's cultural scene. In the historical location that served as an alternative art incubator in the late 80s and early 90s. Offering mead (honey wine) made on-site. Hosting a variety of social events, including live music, comedy showcases, rpg events and more. DOGS WELCOME. You are welcome to bring food in with you. There are nice restaurants an easy walk down the sidewalk. Locally owned family business.

What a cool spot! Went on Friday, brought some food from a local restaurant, drank their house mead and NC selection beer, and played some board games. The vibes and decor were really great and the owner was super friendly. They just opened up but I can already tell this is going to be a super fun hang out spot for me and my friends!
