I was pretty surprised to come back to Durham walked into this place. I have different memories of downtown Durham from 08 and seeing this makes me feel right at home. Nice venue and cool vibe.

Had a fun experience, for one of my closest friends birthdays. This is a truly "queer" club that seems to serve as a safe place for free expression. However I did feel like the DJ was overly trying to accommodate myself and friends bless her heart but at the same time I've only been in this club twice now and may just be unfamiliar with the vibe

Was great, wonderful bartender who made a fun drink! Definitely was surprised about the "mandatory" mask request that was slightly being followed be some people. Hopefully that will change sometime.

Had my first visit a few days ago. Loved that they have a mask policy still and are very LGBTQ+ friendly. This is a small venue with a small stage but is a great setup with attentive and kind employees. Sound was spot on too!

Great little hole-in-the-wall music bar. I love going here both for shows and for karaoke night, which they hold about twice a month. I even started making my own karaoke videos to sing to.

Great location, not super busy, wish there was more seating but then again I was here for an open mic. Nice DJ, door person and bartender.

I truly love Pinhook! It's the first place that I DJed in public. It's a very welcoming bar for LBGTQ+ I prefer this venue more than many other places. There are event nights, but house music is regularly played here

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

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!
