Overlooking North Durham's nightlife from The Pit Durham's rooftop patio, guests can map out the rest of their evening while enjoying a signature cocktail paired nicely with the venue's authentic barbeque. The Pit opened in the old 7Up Bottling building in 2013 as a dine-in restaurant and quickly became a neighborhood hit. After noticing that the spaces throughout the building were increasingly used by large groups for rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, and corporate, collegiate, and medical group mixers, they knew a change needed to be made. In May 2022, the dine-in restaurant business transitioned into a full-time venue. Its layout allows multiple events to happen at once with the full-venue booking as their most popular chosen option. With a capacity of over 560 guests, The Pit Durham is one of the largest more reasonably priced venues in town with on-site catering, professional staff, a full-service cocktail bar, and a host of other great amenities. Sunset weddings from the rooftop and dancing the night away closer to the stars, intimate exchanges of vows to the biggest company bash of the year, The Pit Durham has you covered.
