I've been to this bar a few times, once for trivia and once for a band. I enjoy the laid back atmosphere, and the no frills environment. They had good drinks and speedy service, which is what you look for in a bar.

Kind of a shabby place. I didn't feel welcome at all. Good location.

Karaoke night was fun except for the man running the karaoke. He has a bit of a complex. He would sing when there was a full list of people waiting. Seemed like he was on a power trip.

This place wins best queer bar for a reason. Never been to an event there that wasn't fantastic. Particularly the drag shows by the House of Coxx!

Absolutely phenomenal venue with an amazing staff and fun drinks. Only downside is that it's a small venue and you will heat up fast. Dress cool and have a blast you will never regret a night out here. The drag shows, the concerts, and Pie Pushers upstairs is all you need to enjoy a night in Durham.

I attended an amazing karaoke night on a Saturday with a friend of mine. Loved every bit of it. The entire place was lit and full of enthu. The best part is you can have as many drinks as you want without burning a hole in your pocket. A must visit when you're in downtown.

Super crowded! Music is good but low quality sound. Bar needs to improve their drinks menu.

Pinhook is the most amazing place I have ever been too! It is very welcoming of everyone and an absolutely perfect place for my first Hanukkah celebration! The bathrooms are beautiful with graffiti and I was gifted a beautiful raccoon hoodie from here by a friend of mine!

Went here for a political event. Space was better than I thought and bigger too. I was impressed by their beer (both craft and delightfully Americana hipster potentially ironic choices) and their cocktail list. A couple of people brought dogs in, which I thought was pretty great, though I'm not sure my dog would endure a punk show there.

Historic music venue with cultural significance. Friendly and welcoming yet in-your-face. DIY aesthetic. Great place to see a band up close.

Awesome concert venue. They check vax cards at the door and are serious about people keeping their masks on. Affordable drinks too ($8 for a cocktail, $6 for a beer).

This is such a rad inclusive spot to get a drink and dance, karaoke, and see awesome live bands and entertainers. The back patio is one of my favorite views of downtown D-town!

The best people, bsst vibes, and best shows I ever did have the pleasure to know/experience. The Pinhook is one of the reasons I choose to live in Durham.
