The Bar Durham

Home of the Slut Bucket

Based within the heart of Old North Durham’s Warehouse District, the bar is the OG Bull City LGBTQ home base. The latest iteration of a more than two decade long tradition of clubbing for queers. We’ve reinvented the space with the intention to carry on the legacy of 711 Rigsbee Avenue. "Cheers" during the week "Lit"uations on the weekends. Oh, and did we mention we have hookahs?

the bar is a place to come with friends, or make friends– to share drinks after work, watch your favorite sporting events, drag shows, and karaoke and MirIAm's Open mic. On Friday and Saturday nights catch a vibe with our DJs. We pride ourselves on being inclusive – this is a bar for everyone to enjoy. Most importantly, we recognize that YOU make the bar. This isn’t just the bar – it’s YOUR bar!
